Stella 1.3 required for this release
Large speed improvement in this release. A cache file was introduced so that if the ROM’s directory hasn’t changed since you last ran KStella, then the cache file is used, speeding up ROM analysis.
Many UI changes that reflect new options in Stella 1.3.
Made viewing of the preview window optional. Relating to this, the buttons previously associated with the preview window have been removed and placed in a menu.
Preview window has been greatly improved. It can now be resized to any size, and previews are much faster if using opaque window resizing.
