    Release Notes: With this release, more games are supported: Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos (based on the same engine as Kyrandia), the kids' game Blue's Birthday Adventure, and the science fiction game Ringworld: Revenge of the Patriarch.

      Release Notes: This release is truly feature-rich. In particular, support was introduced for a new platform, WebOS, and a set of new games was added: Urban Runner, Playtoons, Toonstruck, Hugo series, Living Books, and Backyard Baseball. The SCI engine was improved, so Amiga and some Macintosh versions of the games are supported now too. Many of the ports received improvements, and a number of bugs have been fixed in practically every engine.

        Release Notes: This is a maintenance release and is intended to fix several important bugs since 1.2.0. In particular, Hungarian and Brazilian translations of the GUI were added, and bugs were fixed for the Cruise, Groovie, and Lure engines.

          Release Notes: This release adds support for Sierra SCI games, including King's Quest I-VI, Larry up to 6 (low-res 6 only), Police Quest 1-3, Quest for Glory I-III, Space Quest I-V, and many more. Also new is support for the Coktel Vision game "Fascination". Several new ports for Android, Dingux, Caanoo, and OpenPandora were added. Unfortunately, the PalmOS port had to be dropped. The user interface was improved. For example, tooltips were added. Most importantly, one can now localize ScummVM to languages other than English.

            This is very cool! My whole family loved the old Pajama Sam and Puttputt games, and now we can play them on linux. Haven't spent enough time yet playing them to see what 90% support really means, but they crashed all the time when we tried to run them in Classic compatibility mode on my wife's MacOS X box, so it's not like we had a lot of other options.
