Release Notes: This release comes with a fairly high number of new features, improvements, and bugfixes. The most important changes this time include many useful MESS-related improvements, an updated template format, and variant launching is now also supported on Windows. QMC2 can now also be built using the MinGW (GCC) compiler on Windows; the user can now decide if ROM status icons are to be shown or not in any of the game/machine list views. A number of tool functions are added. A built-in YouTube video player for game/machine attached video streams is added.
Release Notes: The major focus of this version is clean support for Qt 4.7. The most important changes include major improvements for the emulator embedder to cleanly work with Qt 4.7 and to fix existing/known bugs with regard to auto-maximization, emulator focus, and mixed/concurrent joystick control, support for XML data that contains Unicode characters, ROMAlyzer fixes (interpret verifications through chdman as file integrity checks only), and improvements and support for additional/new XML data.
