/Dosbox Staging Discord Channel
(Note: This is a fork
of the original Dosbox with many new features).
Main improvements in this new version:
Added universal builds for macOS, supporting x86-64 and ARM64 in the same DMG package.
Added a workaround for vsync lag, which is useful for video outputs that enforce vsync.
Added window size and placement customizations .
Added full /help output text for the AUTOTYPE, BOOT, CALL, CHOICE, CLS, COPY, DIR, ECHO, EXIT, GOTO, HELP, IF, INTRO KEYB, LS, MD/MKDIR, MEM, RD/RMDIR, REN/RENAME, RESCAN, SHIFT, SUBST, and TYPE commands.
Added MSYS2-based release builds and instructions for those on Windows using MSYS2.
Merged PCjr composite patch.
Merged CGA composite improvement patch.
Added bash-shell completion.
Added Loguru, a fast cross-platform logging subsystem. Logs are now time-stamped and warnings are now colorized.
Merged S3 video patch.
Added configurable FluidSynth chorus and reverb settings.
Added auto-exit. When an executable that's passed on the command-line exits, then so too will the emulator. This is equivalent to manually adding the -exit command-line flag.
Added layered and portable configuration file handling.
Added ENet (reliable UDP) as an option for modem and null-modem transport, as well as SERIAL.COM for runtime serial-port configuration.
Added support for virtual Ethernet and TCP/IP networking via slirp.
Added support for networking in Windows for Workgroups 3.11 from the shell. Previously networking in WfW was only possible when booting a real MS-DOS installation from a bootable HDD image.
Added IDE controller support for CDROM image-mounts, which is useful for CDROM-based games that also happen to need a real DOS environment such as Revell's car games, like European Racers.
All of them are explained in detail on the release page: https://dosbox-staging.github.io/v0-78-0/
With downloads for Linux, Windows, and macOS platforms.
