QMC2 0.42 released

Merry Christmas :)!

Today we proudly release QMC2 0.42. This version is in sync with MAME/MESS 0.152 (released earlier today) and contains a number of major performance improvements, especially for the loading of cached data. Despite the performance improvements, we also have a few important stability fixes this time, and Qt 5 support has been greatly improved as well (we still recommend Qt 4.8, though). Please see the change-log below for more details!

The source code is available in the download section now, and the openSUSE package for 0.42 has already been updated:

Expect updated binary packages for other OSs  / distributions within the next few days (it’s Christmas, so “when time permits”)!

Have fun,

The QMC2 dev-team

QMC2 0.41 released

QMC2 0.41 has been released today!

The MAME/MESS team decided to change their release model and no longer produce u-releases, so the intervals between two major releases are a lot shorter than before. We still want to keep in sync with them, but this obviously means fewer changes between two QMC2 releases.

However, we still have some nice additions for you this time :). Most importantly, QMC2 Arcade received support for mapping (theme-specific / native) key-sequences to any other key-sequences and/or joystick-functions. And Qt CHDMAN GUI is now scriptable – for more information see our new qchdman-related wiki-page.

This version is in sync with MAME/MESS/UME 0.151. Please see the change-log below for details!

The source code is now available in the download section. As always, expect updated binary packages within the next few hours and days!

Have fun,

The QMC2 dev-team

QMC2 0.40 released

QMC2 0.40 has been released today!

The probably most important feature addition this time is the support for other common image file formats (apart from just PNG). There have also been a number of noticeable performance improvements and (mostly minor) bug-fixes that make it a worthy update.

This version is in sync with MAME/MESS/UME 0.150. Please see the change-log below for details!

The source code is now available in the download section. As always, expect updated binary packages within the next few hours and days!

Have fun,
