Imgtool Changes:

Source Changes:
- The core is based on MAME 0.142.  This incorporates all features of the
  update to this core.  [MAME team]

- Added support for a new template to -snapname to use software names for
  snapshots. It is now possible to use %d_XXXX to name snaps after the name
  of the file mounted in the device XXXX, being XXXX the brief name of any
  device. E.g. you can use "-snapname %d_cart" to use the name of the game
  mounted in the cartslot, or "-snapname %d_flop2" to use the name of the game
  mounted in the second floppy drive, etc. If you are loading software through
  software lists, its shortname will be used; if you are using the fullpath of
  the software, its filename is used. Any combination of the new template with
  the old "/", "%g" and "%i" templates is supported as well. Notice that if you
  specify an invalid device, or if you have no software mounted in the chosen
  device, MESS will revert to the default template "%g/%i". [Fabio Priuli]
