Any not yet dumped expansion board (SCSI/IDE/others) boot ROM image.
Most of them can be dumped without hardware ROM reader.

Examples:
- Blizzard 1230 MK I and SCSI Kit MK I.
- Breitfeld Computersysteme AccessX 500/2000
- Expansion Systems DataFlyer 500/1000/2000
- ICD Trifecta
- Mainhattan A-Team
- Masoboshi MasterCard v2.204 (last version?)
- SupraDrive ROM versions AMAB1 and AMAB2 (AMAB3-6 dumped)
- Micro Forge A1000 HD controller driver disk.

- Bus Stop freezer cartridge or ROM dump.
- Nordic Power ROM v1.0.

Estimated release date: December 2016.

New emulated expansion hardware:

Graphics adapters:

- ColorBurst
- Harlequin
- OpalVision

Accelerator boards:

- Blizzard 1230 MK II and III.
- IVS Vector 68030.

HD controllers:

- Blizzard 1230 MK II and III SCSI Kit.
- Buddha.
- Expansion Systems Dataflyer Plus.

New features:

- RAM/RTG RAM handling updated, all size combinations are now supported.
- Autoconfig board GUI list with custom sorting support.
- RAM Z2/Z3 board full autoconfig data customization support.
- Up to 4 Z2 and Z3 RAM boards can be enabled simultaneously.

- Single step (emulate one frame + pause) input event.

Updates:

- Reduced input latency.

- WinPCap network mode now uses generated local MAC address, no more
  MAC conflicts between Windows and emulated Amiga.
- If some RAM board is not JIT Direct capable, only board's access mode
  changes to JIT Indirect. Global JIT Direct option is not switched off.
- Most RAM size/position related JIT Direct restrictions are gone.
- Environment variables in file paths (%VAR%) are now always expanded.
- Implemented AGA only bitplane DMA overrun emulation (Moon Child).
- Host path 260 character limit removed (Windows 10 v1607+ only).

Bug fixes:

- Shortcuts with Shift key work again.
- Custom Game Port remapping does not disappear mysteriously.

- On the fly directory/archive mounting only worked once under OS4.x.
- Worms DC and ACSYS (possibly others) graphics glitch fixed.
- Bad sprite collision optimization fixed (Jumpman Junior).
- Stop PPC emulation first, before freeing any emulation resources
  to prevent random crashes at exit.
- FPS.Adj config file handling fixed.
- ATAPI CD emulation odd data size fix (HDToolbox hang)
- default.uae with unplugged device: set to none, not layout A.

And more...

New features:

- New optional "indirect" UAE expansion trap system, fully compatible
  with OS 4.x, virtual memory and some debugging programs.
- PC Bridgeboard disk drive raw image support. (ipf, ext adf,...)

  out software control (BPLCON0 COLOR bit).
- Dark palette fix option to correct colors of badly ported Atari ST
  games (Midnight Resistance etc..)
- Official CSPPC/BPPC flash updater can be used to install full ROM

- IVS Trumpcard Pro/GrandSlam SCSI emulation.

OS4.x supported UAE expansions:

- Directory harddrives, including on the fly insertion/removal.
- CDFS CD mounting.
- Clipboard sharing.
- uaegfx RTG.
- uaehf.device hardfiles.
- Virtual mouse driver/magic mouse/tablet mode.
- uaenet.device.
- uaeserial.device.
- uaescsi.device.
- uae.resource.
- uaenative.library.

Thanks to all who donated.

NOTE: Performance is not (and can't be) as fast as with m68k AmigaOS,
especially with directory harddrives, due to slower, much more
complex UAE to/from native code context switch trap system.

Updates:

- Game Ports panel input customization is finally very intuitive.
- On the fly input device insertion/removal improvements.
- Many input device handling updates and fixes.
- Faster screenshot/capture in after filtering mode.
- Continuous screenshot mode.
- CD32 Akiko chip low level emulation compatibility improved.
- Nero .nrg CD image support.

Bug fixes:

- Hardware RTG emulation rendered same frame twice in some situations
  causing slow performance.
- Amithlon partition type (0x78/0x30) support works again.
- Some storage devices failed to mount as a harddrive.
- AGA subpixel scrolling glitches.
- Miscellaneous custom chipset emulation fixes.
- AGA mode HAM6 colors were not 100% accurate.
- Some programmed custom chipset display modes crashed.
- Direct3D mode DirectX9 not installed warning corrupted memory.
- Fullscreen + paused + enter GUI: GUI was invisible.
- Display panel gamma value calculation fixed.
- CDFS automount didn't mount CDs with empty label.
