Emulator: WinUAE 3.0.0 with PowerPC emulation
Version 3.0.0 of the well-known Amiga emulator WinUAE has been released. The main new feature is the PowerPC emulation of a PowerPC accelerator board which first was introduced in the beta versions.

New emulated hardware:
  • PPC CPU emulation. CyberStorm PPC and Blizzard PPC boards emulated using QEMU PPC core, on-board SCSI supported
  • Other accelerator boards emulated (Blizzards, CyberStorms, Warp Engine, TekMagic, A2630), including on-board SCSI if available
  • More SCSI expansion boards emulated (Fastlane, Oktagon, Blizzard Kit IV)
  • CD32 Full Motion Video cartridge emulation
  • CDTV-CR emulation
  • A590 XT hard drive emulation
New features:
  • Show on screen message when disk or CD is inserted or ejected or input device is autoswitched
  • Added null serial port mode that connects two WinUAE instances running on same PC
  • Fastest possible CPU speed mode is now available with cycle-exact mode, CPU is fastest possibly, only chip memory and chipset is cycle-exact
  • Immediate blitter is available in cycle-exact modes
  • 68040/060 with more compatible emulates instruction cache, MMU supported
  • 68000/68010 + 32-bit address space is supported
  • Optionally game controllers can be kept active when WinUAE does not have focus
  • Implemented secondary Z2 RAM board, for example 6M Z2 RAM + 2M Z2 RTG board combination is now possible
  • Added "history" menu to filesystem, hardfile and tape drive path selection
  • Added CDTV/CDTV-CR/CD32 turbo CD read mode
  • Multiple SCSI controllers can be active simultaneously
Updates:
  • Programmed chipset display modes accuracy improved
  • Uncompressed CHD harddrive image write support
  • Implemented previously unavailable small Z2 RAM board sizes (64k to 512k)
  • Z3 board emulation supports official autoconfig space, required when using PPC-only operating systems
  • 68000 cycle exact mode updates
  • Improved cycle counting in 68000 more compatible mode
Bugs fixed:
  • 68060 with "Unimplemented CPU emu" checkbox ticked: 68060 only unimplemented instructions were not emulated normally
  • Screenshot with D3D shader filter enabled always took filtered screenshot
  • SCSI CD READ CD command only worked if audio track was first track of CD
  • Hard reset didn't reset map rom loaded KS ROM data
  • AGA sprites in borders were clipped incorrectly in some situations (2.8.0)
  • Autofire always on mode crashed
  • PCMCIA IDE emulation was broken long time ago
  • uanet.device + slirp combination was unusable
  • Directory filesystem statesave support open file path handling fixed
  • AVI audio recording always used PCM mode
