WinUAE 2.8.0 (05.05.2014)
=========================

Standard A500 compatibility is now practically as good as it can get
without knowledge of blitter's undocumented internal logic design.
(Mainly problem with some demos that accidentally modify blitter
registers while blitter is already active)

New features:

- Full A4000T and A4091 NCR53C710 SCSI emulation.
- A590/A2091 and A4091 boot ROM GUI selection.
- Separate graphics filter settings for native and RTG modes.
- 256k ROM image inserted in floppy drive emulates A1000 KICK disk.

- SLIRP network inbound port support (default: 21, 22, 23 and 80, others
  can be added by editing configuration file)
- Input panel previously toggle-only events can be optionally set to on
  and off state, audio/video recording input event added.
- Joystick/joypad can be used to control light pen cursor.

Updates:

- Remaining 68000 cycle-exact mode timing fixes. 
- 68000 reading from write-only or non-existing custom register
  compatibility improved.
- Big chipset edge case compatibility update, for example demos with
  vertical "copper" bars work perfectly, real hardware glitches in
  horizontal scaling are now accurately emulated and much more.
- 68040/68060 without emulating unimplemented FPU instructions is now
  fully compatible with Motorola FPU emulation library, FSAVE special
  FPU exception stack frames implemented.
- Programmed modes (Super72 etc) now automatically select best fit horizontal
  resolution and is more compatible with different filter modes, also display
  positioning is improved.
- Recently dumped Arcadia arcade system ROM images supported.
- Debugger full FPU and 68020+ bitfield, and other previously missing
  68020+ only instructions supported in disassembler.
- Magic mouse + mousehack mode now always stops keyboard input when mouse
  is outside of emulation window, even if window still has focus.

2.7.0 bug fixes:

- Unformatted partition hardfiles didn't mount and had incorrect geometry.
- Resolution autoswitch was not compatible with new interlace scanline modes.
- 68020 CE mode FPU exceptions fixed, broke for example KS 1.3 FPU detection.
- Sound glitches in games that use OCS compatible "fake 60Hz" screenmodes.

Bug fixes:

- Keyboard led indicator state syncronization problems fixed.
- Fixed very rare JIT FPU bug introduced in 1.2.
- Vertical centering works again, improved horizontal centering.
- Full tablet emulation boot guru fixed.
- Graphics glitches in some borderblank and border sprite modes.
- Master floppy write protection setting was not loaded from config file.
- Some narrow AGA modes clipped some pixels from right edge of display.

adfread 1.1 (24.12.2006)
========================

Adfread will allow you to create ADF floppy disk images from regular
Amiga disks using standard PC hardware. It uses same method as Disk2FDI
but is compatible with Windows 2000 and newer.

Requirements:

- Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista
- PC mainboard must have hardware support for 2 floppy drives
  Unfortunately most modern PC mainboards don't have B: drive motor
  and select signals connected. MB is compatible if you can configure
  both A: and B: drives in BIOS. (usually..)
- 2 non-USB floppy drives installed on the same cable
- Regular format Amiga disks without any copy-protection
- A normal PC-formatted 1.44M floppy

Changes from 1.0 to 1.1:

- Improved internal disk operations
- Adfread can be run multiple times and only damaged sectors are
  retried (uses <name of adf>.status file to store sector status
  information)
- Small fixes and updates
