Log message:
atari800: updated to 4.1.0

Version 4.1.0:

New Features:
* Atari800 now includes Altirra BIOS-es for all emulated systems: 400/800,
  XL/XE, and 5200; as well as Altirra BASIC. It is now possible to use the
  emulator without providing any ROM images.

* The Altirra OS-es and Altirra BASIC can now be selected by users in the
  "System settings", if they want to use them. Previously Altirra OS \ 
was used
  automatically only when no other OS ROMs were found.

* joyhat support for all four real joysticks, configurable in CLI/cfg/TUI

Notable changes:
* All documentation specific to building Atari800 on Windows has been moved
  from DOC/INSTALL to a new file, DOC/BUILD.windows. This document
  has also been expanded with a new chapter covering building Atari800 using
  MSYS2.

* Ability to use the built-in EmuOS firmware has been removed. Users wishing
  to run Atari800 without providing OS ROMs now have an option of using the
  built-in Altirra OS-es, which are compatible with much more Atari software
  than EmuOS.
  At the same time, it is still possible to compile a version of Atari800
  without any OS ROMs built in, by means of the --disable-altirra_bios
  configure option.

Port specific improvements:
== Atari Falcon ==
* More Videl/screen handling fixes
* Ability to run Atari800 in an AES-less environment
* Replaced C2P with MMU friendly and faster code
* Atari800 should run on all TOS clones with XBIOS Sound API

== Android ==
* Fixed building of the Android target, broken in the previous release.
* Fixed labels on console keys (unreadable on hi-res displays)
* Fixed console keys press detection
* Fixed "right-handed joystick" trigger press

== Raspberry Pi ==
* updated build documentation
* find proper Broadcom GLes libraries
* fixed bug in GRAPHICS 9 (shifted colors)

== MS Windows ==
* updated build documentation

General Fixes:
* updated build documentation
* it is possible to build atari800 out of source tree
* unconnected host joysticks initialized properly, fixes the MULE game

atari800: updated to 4.0.0

Version 4.0.0:

This release brings four years of hard work of fellow Atari800 developers
on improvements and bugfixes of our favorite Atari emulator.

Ports to Atari ST/TT/Falcon, Android, Raspberry Pi and Sega Dreamcast
have been improved (some of them greatly).

CPU, SIO, ANTIC, GTIA, POKEY and PIA emulation has been corrected.

Atari800 now includes Altirra BIOS so it is now possible to run *some*
programs even without installing the original ROM files.

The total number of changes is so huge that major version bump was necessary.

Contrary to usual NEWS entries here follows a very incomplete list. It might
be updated in later releases. In the meantime please read DOC/ChangeLog
and the commit history in git for complete list of changes.

This release contains breaking changes in color handling. Users updating from
an earlier version should reset their color settings, or else the display
might be unreadable. To reset the color settings, do one of these:
 * Select one of the presets available in the menu option "Display \ 
settings"->
   "Color preset"; or
 * Run atari800 with the -color-preset command-line option, e.g.:
   atari800 -colors-preset standard; or
 * Delete the emulator's config file (.atari800.cfg). Caution: you'll lose
   all Atari800 settings!

New features:
-------------
 * Support for loading of CAS images with "fsk" chunks - images of
   copy-protected tapes can now be loaded, with SIO patch being disabled.
 * Bit3 Full View 80 Column card emulation.
 * New cartridge type 68: "Atrax 128 KB cartridge".
   Previously existing cartridge type 17: "Atrax 128 KB cartridge" was \ 
based
   on a misconception - real Atrax cartridges have their address and data
   lines intermixed, so type 17 could not be used with actual ROM dumps. So,
   type 17 has been renamed to "Decoded Atrax 128 KB cartridge", and \ 
new type
   68 has been added, whcih now can be used for Atrax ROM chip dumps.
 * New cartridge types supported:
   - aDawliah 32 KB cartridge
   - aDawliah 64 KB cartridge

 * new command line switch "-volume" (for 16bit sound output) that can set
   the output volume of the Atari 800 emulator with value from 0 to 100.

Changes:
--------
 * The Sound Settings option "Fragment size" has been renamed to less \ 
cryptic
   "Hardware buffer size".
 * Total emulator volume is lower now because the output has been shifted
   in order to fix a possible annoying humming sound in silence on some
   receivers (TV sets).

Fixes:
------
 * Fixed computation of gamma adjustment - now it is applied to each of the
   three RGB channels separately.
 * On systems that support synchronized sound: Fixed the emulator crashing
   when Dual POKEY was enabled while High Fidelity POKEY was turned off.
 * Improve screen update routines in the Dreamcast port. They don't use
   DIRTYRECT anymore but are faster than the old routines when the whole
   screen is dirty.

atari800: updated to 3.1.0

Version 3.1.0:

General new features:
---------------------
 * More accurate emulation of PAL colours (based on analysis of oscillograms
   of real PAL GTIA output)

 * Improved PAL blending, working on all grayscale pixels and is accurate now
   (can be enabled/disabled in "TV effect" display settings)

 * common sound layer implemented (SDL, JavaNVM, OSS, DOS) with synchro sound.

 * synchronized sound is now supported by both POKEY sound engines.

 * turbo mode (F12) is considerably faster

 * Added cartridge mapping used by "Turbo Hit"/"Atari Blizzard \ 
Hit".
 * Added MegaMax 2 MB cartridge mapping.
 * Added read-only support for the 4 MB Flash MegaCart mapping.
 * Added minimal support for The!Cart.

General Fixes:
--------------
 * fixed possible unnecessary cartridge bank switching
 * fixes and clean up in Java port
