MAME 0.137
« on: 12 March 2010, 10:50 »

The first official MAME release of 2010 is finally available.

Grab it here.

Grab the datfile here.

0.137 whatsnew :

IMPORTANT NOTE: As of this release of MAME, several important things
about the system have changed. Please read the following items before
attempting to compile this new version.

1. A new tool chain for Windows, based off of gcc 4.4.3 prerelease,
is now REQUIRED. Go to http://mamedev.org/tools to get the new tools.
The code included with 0.137 WILL NOT BUILD with the old tools.
The new tool chain has support for building 64-bit MAME builds with
gcc, as well as built-in DirectX headers, and C++ support, which was
missing from the old tools.

2. Non-Unicode builds of Windows MAME are no longer supported. The
options to turn this off in the makefile have been removed, and
future changes are likely to solidify this requirement. If you are
still (God forbid) running on Win9x, you will need the unicows.dll
library to run MAME. Download unicows from Microsoft.

3. All code in MAME is now compiled as C++, plus there have been a few
small changes that take advantage of the C++ language. For the most
part, there is no effect on how drivers are written, except for some
nicer accessors to devices and address spaces. Future improvements to
take advantage of the C++ syntax will evolve slowly, and will be done
internally. We are not interested in outside attempts to do this work
for now.

4. The SDL OSD for MAME is now shipped as part of the main source
package. SDL builds for Windows are now regularly built as part of the
validation sequence for a new release. Thanks to R. Belmont,
couriersud, and Olivier Galibert for their work on the SDL port over
the years.
