xmame and xmess 0.103

January 17th, 2006 by Marv

The latest release of xmame and xmess has been announced. Changelog for this release includes the following items:

  • Everything from MAME 0.103 and MESS 0.103
  • Modified osd_alloc_executable() to use mmap() by default. This prevents segfaults in the DRC core on systems that support the NX bit, such as AMD64 and Intel Prescott. Thanks to Julian Sikorski, Adam Moss, and Carl Fongheiser.
  • Fixed a segfault that occurred when LIRC was enabled but lirc_init returned an error value. (Joe Quanaim)
  • Added “-[no]lirc” to enable or disable LIRC support. (Joe Quanaim)
  • Fixed several buffer overruns that happened when overly-long data was passed for “-ctrlr”, “-lang”, “-rec”, and “-pb”. Fixed other potential buffer overruns. Bugzilla bug 821.
  • Files larger than 2GB can now be accessed on platforms with large file support.
  • The “-createhd” and “-merge” operations in chdman are now a lot faster on Linux.
