[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.7.6, Package name: retroarch-1.7.6, Maintainer: nia

Libretro is a simple but powerful development interface that allows for the
easy creation of emulators, games and multimedia applications that can plug
straight into any libretro-compatible frontend. This development interface is
open to others so that they can run these pluggable emulator and game cores
also in their own programs or devices.

RetroArch is the official reference frontend for the libretro API.

Required to run:
[graphics/MesaLib] [graphics/freetype2] [audio/flac] [x11/libXv] [x11/libxcb] [devel/SDL2] [x11/libxkbcommon] [security/mbedtls] [net/miniupnpc] [emulators/libretro-core-info] [emulators/libretro-database]

Required to build:
[pkgtools/x11-links] [x11/xcb-proto] [x11/fixesproto4] [pkgtools/cwrappers] [x11/xorgproto]

Package options: freetype, opengl, sdl2, x11

Log message:
emulators/retroarch: Update to 1.7.6

pkgsrc specific changes:

* Remove the deprecated and broken libxml2 and libusb1 options.
* Fix the qt5 option.
* No longer depends on libretro-glsl-shaders, instead use the built-in
updater to install shaders. Fixes shader preset saving as non-root...
* I submitted a sun audio driver to upstream and they accepted it, so
NetBSD and (probably) SunOS will now default to "audioio" instead of \
