v14 feature freeze end of Saturday 17th of March

Post by SarahWalker » Sun 25 Feb, 2018 9:05 pm

I'm intending v14 to be a relatively small release, basically the features I intended for v13 didn't make it, the backlog of patches that built up, and bugfixes. I'm setting feature freeze for the end of Saturday the 17th of March, to be followed by a few weeks of bugfixing & code hardening. Any feature patches posted after then won't be considered for the release - obviously bugfixes are still welcome! Once v14 is out then I'm going to hunker down for a bit to rework the dynamic recompiler, which will probably be the only major change from me for v15.

I would also appreciate any help with testing & building a compatibility list. PCem's grown to the point where I can't really do this alone anymore; full testing for v13 took weeks. leilei did a great job helping with v13 here - viewtopic.php?f=2&t=885. I'd be extremely grateful to anyone who can help do something similar for v14!

I'll see what I can do about cleaning and sorting some updated documentation in time. This next week will be busy for me but it should slow down afterwards.

I don't know a lot of C but this is something I can help out with.

Thanks for all the work that you've put into this thing. :)

A higher cylinder limit could help. There are times I wish I had a bit more space so I wouldn't have to make 15 8gb images to test across many configurations. Most of the games dumped in them are from hard drive migrations and often have redundancy

I can probably accommodate that, assuming you're happy using Disk Manager/EZ Drive/Max Blast/whatever to work around BIOS limitations.

About that compatibly list...
Is it OK to create a new thread and put everything there? Or you prefer something more elaborate?

A new thread's fine with me.
