Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.74.3nb1, Package name: dosbox-0.74.3nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

DOSBox is a DOS-emulator using SDL for easy portability to
different platforms, DOSBox has already been ported to
several different platforms, such as Windows, BeOS, Linux,
Mac OS X...

DOSBox emulates a 286/386 realmode CPU, Directory
FileSystem/XMS/EMS, a SoundBlaster card for excellent sound
compatibility with older games...

You can "re-live" the good old days with the help of
DOSBox, it can run plenty of the old classics that don't
run on your new computer !

dosbox: Update to 0.74.3

A security release for DOSBox 0.74:
- Fixed that a very long line inside a bat file would overflow the parsing
  buffer (CVE-2019-7165 by Alexandre Bartel)
- Added a basic permission system so that a program running inside DOSBox
  can't access the contents of /proc (e.g. /proc/self/mem) when / or /proc
  were (to be) mounted (CVE-2019-12594 by Alexandre Bartel)
- Several other fixes for out of bounds access and buffer overflows.
- Some fixes to the OpenGL rendering.

dosbox: Update to 0.74.2 (0.74-2)

  - Rewrite auto/max cycles algorithm to work better with windows 7, other
    OSes might benefit as well.
  - Update 64bit recompiler to work on OSX and Linux.
  - Several improvements to make the recompilers work with newer compilers and
    add some workarounds about clang confusing itself.
  - Fix several variables being the wrong size in the recompiler.
  - Support absolute 64 bit addressing. (DRC:64 bit error messages)
  - Zero extend data in dynrec core for LLVM compilation/
  - Reduce overhead of the Mac version with a lot. Results in a speed increase.
  - Replace NV_PixelDataRange with the more common ARB_PixelBufferObject
    extension. Should help with output=opengl.
  - Reuse graphics window if possible instead of always creating a new one!
  - Add patches to work better when called by WINE:
    - support WINE style namemangling.
    - allow Z:\ to be moved to a different drive.
  - Try to fix stuttering audio with opengl output on Linux. (or at least
    improve it. Linux users might need to increase the prebuffer option a bit)
  - Fix automake and autoconf problems.
  - Fix problems related to packed struct layouts.
  - Fix compilation on gcc 4.4 and gcc 4.6.1.
  - Fix compilation with -DPIC.
  - Hopefully fix crash on shutdown, when unknown condition is encountered.
  - Fix -lto with gcc.
  - Fix clang compliation with asm fpu core.
  - Fix mapper crash on startup and when changing the mapper key.
  - Fix compilation in VS2015.
  - Fix compilation on mingw64.
  - Fix compilation on Frisbee and newer clang.
  - Fix compilation machines that have X11 libraries installed, but use a SDL
    without X11.
  - Fix a few problems relating to video capturing:
    - Writing out the index too often. (slowdown with longer captures)
    - Not being aware of when only the refresh rate changed.
  - Fix call order when bitshifting the return order (VS C /O2 builds).
  - Fix sign-extension error in S3 draw funcion, i.e. win3.1 analog clock.
  - Fix expanddot not caring about the size of the inputbuffer.
  - Some fixes for the debugger related to starting a program through debug.com.
  - Bring OS/2 port code up to date.
  - Reduce the amount of warning when compiling with quite a bit.
  - Allow 15/26/32 bits input to the opengl output.
  - Add cmd-q as exit key for macs.
  - Fix icon and titlebar on very old setups.
  - Fix off by one display size calculation errors with very large displays.
  - Fix out of bounds access the unused byte in the 32 bit colour value of the
    hardware mouse cursor pixel was affected.
  - Fix depreciated warnings on Mac, allow soundfont loading for coreaudio.
  - Keep repeating a pressed key if another key was unpressed.
  - Fix crash on OS X related to putting junk in the titlebar.
  - Extend fullresolution=0x0 to work on Linux and Mac.
  - Change gameblaster and tandy sound core to latest mame version.
  - Improve numlock and capslock support on Linux and Macs. Still not perfect
    on Windows.
  - Added even more code to workaround Windows behaving weirdly with alt-tab.

Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.

Log message:
dosbox: set default audio blocksize to 8192 (up from 1024)

audio stuttering was very noticeable in some games on netbsd and
the cause wasn't clear. downsides: may increase audio lag.

This is also configurable with ~/.dosbox/dosbox-0.74.conf.

Suggested by nat, thanks!
