./emulators/dosbox-x, DOSBox fork with enhancements

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.83.4, Package name: dosbox-x-0.83.4, Maintainer: nia

As a fork of DOSBox, DOSBox-X retains compatibility with the wide base of
DOS games DOSBox was designed for.

It also goes further, with a focus on accurate emulation of the hardware,
and many more ways to tweak and configure the DOS virtual machine.

The DOSBox-X team believes that a better way to emulate the legacy PC platform
is to give the user all the options they need to emulate everything from
original IBM PC hardware with 64KB of RAM all the way up to late 90's
hardware, whatever it takes to get that game or software package to run.

dosbox-x: Update to 0.83.4

  - Fixed loading saved states in fullscreen mode with
    the "aspect=true" setting. (Wengier)
  - Added config option "saveslot" to select default
    save slot (1-10). The timestamps for the saved
    states will also be shown in the menu. (Wengier)
  - Added key mapper for sending the Ctrl+Alt+Del key,
    with HOST(F11/F12)+Del by default. (Wengier)
  - Added dosbox-x.conf setting to ignore the EGA/VGA
    "extended memory" bit. It was originally defined
    back when stock EGA/VGA cards could ship with 64KB
    of memory. The option is needed for DOS games that
    accidentally clear the bit when using unchained
    256-color modes (Mr. Blobby).
  - Added new default value "auto" for the setting
    "usescancodesauto" (in [sdl] section of the config
    file) to work around issues with non-US keyboard
    layouts on SDL1 builds. (Wengier)
  - Added code pages 808, 850, 852, 853, 855, 857,
    858, 869, 872 for host to guest codepage mapping
    on mounted local or overlay drives. (Wengier)
  - The mapper options "Increase recording volume" and
    "Decrease recording volume" as well as function
    "Show sound levels" (from MIXER command) appear
    now as menu items (under "Sound") too. (Wengier)
  - Fixed inputting of ASCII character 224 and 240
    in Windows SDL2 or MinGW builds. (Wengier)
  - Fixed possible DPMI error when running Windows
    98 installation from the DOSBox-X shell without
    using a batch file. (Wengier)
  - Fixed a bug in the FAT driver that can cause
    a byte to get lost if writing up to the end of
    a cluster, which seems to be behind the
    corruption with program group files when running
    Windows for Workgroups 3.11 from DOSBox-X shell.
  - Unknown INT 2Fh calls are now debug output, not
    an error.
  - Added VESA BIOS mode 68h alias as indicated on
    the Vogons forum.
  - Fixed handling of config commands with spaces
    when the "shell configuration as commands"
    setting is enabled (quotes are needed in such
    cases). Also added "Config options as commands"
    toggle menu (under "DOS") to enable/disable the
    feature from menu. It is disabled by default to
    avoid name clash with other programs. (Wengier)
  - Added "Enable quick reboot" toggle menu (under
    "DOS") so that when enabled, DOS restart calls
    will reboot the emulated DOS (integrated or
    guest DOS) instead of the virtual machine in
    DOSBox-X. Also, you could change the default
    setting for this by setting the new "quick
    reboot" config option in "dos" section (Wengier)
  - Added new "Reboot guest system" menu item (under
    "Main") to reboot the kernel of the integrated
    DOS or the guest DOS directly. The previous menu
    item "Reset guest system" has been renamed to
    "Reset virtual machine" which will restart the
    virtual machine in DOSBox-X instead. (Wengier)
  - Added "Reported DOS version" sub-menu (under
    "DOS") to dynamically change the reported DOS
    version (3.3, 5.0, 6.22, 7.1, or custom). This
    may enable/disable long filename (LFN) support
    with the default "lfn=auto" setting. (Wengier)
  - LS is now an external command appearing on drive
    Z: as LS.COM instead of a builtin shell command.
    This avoids name clash with game "Links LS 97"
    which has the main executable named LS.EXE. Also
    fixed minor issues in this command. (Wengier)
  - Fixed the game "Disney's Duck Tales: the Quest
    for Gold" not able to start. (Wengier)
  - Improved Configuration GUI's handling of "4dos"
    and "config" sections. Also added the "Save..."
    button just before the "Close" button. (Wengier)
  - Added "euro" config option (in [render] section)
    to display Euro symbol instead of the specified
    ASCII character in any code page. (Wengier)
  - PC-98 CG MMIO writes fixed to limit writes only
    to the user-defined areas, same as the IO writes.
    This fixes "Niko Niko" that appears to write a
    few too many 0xE1 bytes when filling text
    attribute RAM and into the CG MMIO region.
  - With -winrun command-line option or the setting
    "startcmd=true" (Windows only), you can now
    directly launch Windows programs on mounted local
    or overlay drives to run on the host. The option
    "startwait=false" can be used to disable waiting
    for Windows programs after started. This can also
    be toggled from the "DOS" menu. (Wengier)
  - Added START command to run commands on Windows
    host system. The /MAX, /MIN, /HID options can
    be used to run the specified program maximized,
    minimized, or hidden (they can be shortened to
    +, -, _ respectively). This command is disabled
    by default, but can be enabled by either the
    "startcmd" config option (in [dos] section) or
    the -winrun command-line option (which will also
    enable the CLIP$ device for Windows clipboard
    support). START will run commands listed in the
    "startincon" config option (separated by space)
    in the Windows Command Prompt and wait for a key
    press before exiting. (Wengier)
  - Added SHELL= option to the [config] section in
    dosbox-x.conf to specify an alternative shell,
    e.g. "SHELL=4DOS.COM". (Wengier)
  - Added built-in 4DOS 8.00 shell for 4DOS features
    and capabilities. There is now a [4dos] section
    in the dosbox-x.conf file to act as the 4DOS.INI
    config file if you use this shell. (Wengier)
  - Added "Mouse wheel movements" menu (under "Main")
    to enable or disable the mouse wheel movements
    to arrow (up/down etc) feature. (Wengier)
  - Added "Quick right mouse button copy/paste" menu
    item toggle to allow quick Windows clipboard copy
    and paste via the right mouse button without any
    key modifier that may have been specified by the
    config option "clip_key_modifier". (Wengier)
  - Fixed mounting a directory with command-line like
    "dosbox-x .", and fixed mounting disk images with
    spaces via the "Drive" menu on Windows. (Wengier)
  - Added "mountwarning" config setting so you could
    optionally disable the warning when attempting to
    mount C:\ in Windows or / otherwise. (Wengier)
  - IMGMOUNT now assumes "-fs none" automatically if
    a drive number is specified instead of a drive
    letter. Moreover, it will assume the image file
    name "IMGMAKE.IMG" if no filename is specified by
    the user. Also improved the command's handling of
    El Torito floppy drives, e.g. you can use option
    "-bootcd d" instead of "-el-torito d". (Wengier)
  - IMGMAKE warning replaced to indicate a general
    incompatibility between MS-DOS/SCANDISK and
    cluster sizes 64KB or larger.
  - IMGMAKE command will now use the image file name
    "IMGMAKE.IMG" if no file name is specified (either
    in the mounted local directory or in the DOSBox-X
    program directory if the current directory is not
    a local directory). The command now also supports
    a -force option to force overwrite the image file
    if it already exists. Furthermore, IMGMAKE will
    delete the generated image file if an error occurs
    during the image file creation. (Wengier)

Log message:
dosbox-x: Update to 0.83.3

  - IMGMAKE can now generate FAT12, FAT16, and FAT32
    filesystems. New option "-fat" is added to select
    the filesystem for the disk image.
  - Fixed command-line like "./dosbox-x /dir/app.bat"
    not able to launch the specified program (Wengier)
  - Fixed bug in DIR command's /P option which might
    cause it to not work properly. (Wengier)
  - The default key modifier for the Windows clipboard
    copy & paste via the right mouse button feature is
    now "shift" instead of "disabled". (Wengier)
  - Single-stepping in the debugger with the 286 and
    8086 normal cores now works correctly when stepping
    over instructions with a segment prefix.
  - Pentium MMX instructions now only available for
    Pentium MMX or higher. Fixed the bug that allowed
    MMX instructions for Pentium and lower if programs
    ignored the CPUID feature bits. Also fixed Pentium
    MMX instructions so that they work in both 16-bit
    real mode and 32-bit protected mode to match how
    they work in real hardware (joncampbell123)
  - Updated DOSBox-X's implementation for Pentium MMX
    instructions to latest version by kekko (Wengier)
  - DOSBox-X will try to automatically run the program
    with LOADFIX if the error message "Packed file is
    corrupt" is detected. (Wengier)
  - MOUNT command can now mount a drive to the UNC
    root path in the form \\ComputerName\SharedFolder
    on Windows systems. (Wengier)
  - Improved the HX-DOS build package to make it fully
    automated: all required HX DOS Extender files will
    be included in the package, and dosbox-x.exe can
    now be run directly in a real DOS system without
    external requirements. (Wengier)
  - Fixed incorrect frame rate reported by 3Dfx Voodoo
    emulation (rderooy, backported from DOSBox SVN).
  - Added the "Boot from disk image" menu item (A:, C:,
    and D: drives only) in the "Drive" menu to boot the
    specified disk image directly in Windows. (Wengier)
  - Support for converting mouse wheel movements into
    keyboard presses like arrow keys, configurable by
    the option "mouse_wheel_key" (default is 0 which
    disables this feature). When set to 1, mouse wheel
    movements are converted to up/down arrows. Setting
    it to 2 or 3 converts such movements to left/right
    arrows or PageUp/PageDn keys respectively. (Wengier)
  - Support for reloading the keyboard mapper file with
    the config -set command. (Wengier)
  - IMGMOUNT command without parameters will show disk
    names for drive-number only mounts. (Wengier)
  - IMGMOUNT can now autodetect DOS <= 3.21 harddisk
    geometry with MFM sector images (rderooy & Wengier)
  - IMGMOUNT -fs none fixed to use same geometry detect
    function that FAT filesystem mounting uses.
  - Added suppprt for mounting overlay drives using MOUNT
    command with "-t overlay" option. Backported from
    DOSBox SVN and adopted for DOSBox-X with additional
    features such as long filename and PC-98 support, it
    allows the users to redirect new and changed file(s)
    to a different location transparently. (Wengier)
  - Cleaned up the DPI awareness auto-detection code to
    allow Visual Studio builds to again run on Windows 7.
    Meanwhile, MinGW builds (either SDL1 or SDL2 version)
    are still required for Windows XP systems. (Wengier)
  - Updated Nuked OPL3 to latest version 1.8 for accurate
    OPL3 emulation (Wengier)
  - Added AUTOTYPE command to perform scripted keyboard
    entry into a running DOS program or game. Ported from
    DOSBox-staging, it can be used to reliably skip intro,
    provide input to answer initial startup or config
    questions, or conduct a simple demo. (Wengier)
  - Added code page 866 (Cyrillic Russian) to support
    host to guest code page mapping (tuffnatty)
  - Mouse buttons (left, middle, right) can now be mapped
    to keys in the keyboard mapper. (Wengier)
  - Support for mounting .cue files with MP3/OGG/WAV/FLAC
    compressed audio tracks. (Wengier)
  - Rewrote the Windows installer for DOSBox-X, as well as
    the building script for the installer. All required
    build tools including the Inno Setup Compiler are now
    provided in the repository and will be automatically
    called by the building script. (Wengier)
  - Added config option "mapperfile_sdl2" for SDL2 builds.
    SDL1 and SDL2 builds of DOSBox-X can not use the same
    mapper file, or they will likely malfunction. Adding
    this option allows SDL1 and SDL2 builds of DOSBox-X
    to work with the same dosbox-x.conf file. (Wengier)
  - Added GUI menu option under "DOS" to change the long
    filename setting (enable, disable, or auto). (Wengier)
  - Improvements and fixes to the save/load state feature:
    It now supports Sound Blaster Goldplay mode;
    It now saves PC-98 FM interrupt state so that reloading
    state does not cause hung music;
    It is also fixed not to crash when used within a guest
    operting system (when the DOS kernel has been shut down
    using the BOOT command);
    It now supports memory size up to 1000MB;
    It will save and verify the DOSBox-X version and build.
    States saved by DOSBox-X in one platform (e.g. 64-bit
    Windows) may not work in another (e.g. 32-bit Linux).
    The GUI menu will show if the save slot is empty, and if
    not the program name of save state will be displayed.
  - Re-ported and improved the save state feature for saving
    and loading states with support for up to 10 save slots.
    They can be selected from the "Capture" menu. (Wengier)
  - Added COUNTRY command to set country code for country-
    specific date and time formats. For example, the command
    "COUNTRY 61" sets the country code to 61 (International
    English) which uses the DD-MM-YYYY date format instead
    of the default (U.S.) MM-DD-YYYY date format. (Wengier)
  - DOS 440Dh IOCTL function 67h (get access flag) added to
    allow FDISK.EXE to determine FAT filesystem type. Also
    implemented function 40h (set device parameters) and
    function 46h (set volume serial number). (Wengier)
  - Unknown DOS 440Dh IOCTLs warnings now indicate whether
    triggered by call or query.
  - S3 VESA BIOS mode number for 1024x768 32bpp changed to
    avoid conflict with Windows 95 S3 driver and 800x600
    16bpp mode.
  - FAT driver no longer mounts FAT32 volumes unless the
    DOS version is 7.1 or higher, and it no longer mounts
    FAT16B LBA volumes unless the DOS version is 7.0 or
    higher. These are to mimic the MS-DOS behavior.
  - Fixed FAT driver not to attempt to mount partitions that
    have nothing to do with the FAT filesystem (such as
    type 0Dh and extended LBA partition tables). Also fixed
    the FAT driver to not assume partition start sector 63
    if it cannot identify a partition to use.
  - Added code to FAT driver to identify telltale pattern
    left by Microsoft FDISK when a partition is created (but
    not yet formatted) and reject.

Log message:
dosbox-x: Update to 0.83.2

  - Added help messages for some supported commands. (Wengier)
  - Added phone book support for the emulated modem. There is
    a new phonebookfile= option in the [serial] section. The
    phone book file entries need to be in the format of:
    "<dummy number> <hostname/ip:port>" e.g.
    5551234 cavebbs.homeip.net:23
  - Implemented the missing EMS subfunctions 52h and 59h by
    porting the patch that adds them (Wengier)
  - Fixed issues with the "config -wcd -all" command and other
    updates to the CONFIG command (Wengier)
  - Added [config] section in dosbox-x.conf to resemble DOS's
    CONFIG.SYS file. It currently supports REM, BREAK, NUMLOCK,
    SET and LASTDRIVE commands. The file CONFIG.SYS will appear
    on the Z: drive, similar to AUTOEXEC.BAT file. The [config]
    section can be bypassed with the -noconfig command-line
    option or with the secure mode enabled (Wengier)
  - Moved PC-98 related config options (starting with "pc-98 ")
    from [dosbox] and [dos] sections to its own [pc98] section.
    These options in existing dosbox-x.conf/dosbox.conf files
    will be automatically redirected to the [pc98] section from
    the other sections when DOSBox-X starts (Wengier)
  - The user directory DOSBox-X uses has been changed to use the
    DOSBox-X directory (e.g. from ~/.dosbox to ~/.config/dosbox-x
    on Linux platform). It will be read *after* the dosbox-x.conf
    file in the current directory (Wengier)
  - Config option "dpi aware" now supports the "auto" setting
    to auto-decide on the best setting for the platform. This
    fixes very small window issue on high DPI devices such as
    Microsoft Surface tablets. (Wengier)
  - Added DTASEG, DTAOFF, and PSPSEG as hex value constants to
    the debugger interface to aid in debugging DOS programs.
  - New command-line option -helpdebug added to list debug-
    related command-line options. The standard -? / -h / -help
    command-line option will no longer list them (Wengier)
  - Implemented LFN support for FAT driver, so that it is now
    possible to view directory list, create or open files and
    directories etc with long filenames on FAT12/16/32 drives
    just like on mounted local drives.
  - FAT driver cleaned up and fixed to avoid edge cases that
    can corrupt directory entries and leave lost clusters
    on the disk, also fixed to always report root directory
    as a directory through the GetFileAttribute INT 21h call,
    needed by MOVE.EXE and XCOPY.EXE to work properly.
  - IMGMOUNT auto geometry detection will assume LBA disk
    and fake C/H/S geometry if the disk is 4GB or larger,
    the MBR lacks executable code, or the first partition
    is Windows 98-style LBA FAT16 or FAT32.
  - IMGMOUNT now assumes ISO type by default if the image file
    extension is .iso/.cue/.bin/.mdf. No need for "-t iso" in
    this case; but (if appliable) it can be overridden by for
    example "-t hdd". (Wengier)
  - IMGMOUNT command (no parameters) now lists mounted FAT/ISO
    drives and mounted drive numbers, also SUBST command (no
    parameters) now lists mounted local drives (Wengier)
  - INT AH=36h fixed to convert free space but maintain a
    cluster size (bytes/sector * sectors/cluster) that is less
    than 64KB to avoid divide by 0 crashes with FORMAT.COM /S
  - Added FAT32 free/total disk space API for FAT driver, and
    updated INT 21h AX=7303h to call it. FAT driver now provides
    FAT32 extended disk free/total through FAT32 API and 2GB
    limited free/total through INT 21h AH=36h for older DOS
    programs. Shell DIR command updated to use FAT32 free space
    API to show free space even on FAT32 partitions larger than
    2GB, but only if the DOS version is set to 7.1 or higher.
  - Added FAT32 INT21h and IOCTLs needed by MS-DOS 7.1/Windows 98
    versions of SCANDISK.EXE and FORMAT.COM, such as DOS functions
    for "FAT32 extended" absolute disk read and write.
  - Improved FAT32 support to the FAT driver, including direct
    support for FAT32 drives in the DOSBox-X command shell. Files,
    directories and volume labels on FAT32 drives can be listed,
    read from or written to just like on FAT12/16 drives.
  - Added DOS IOCTL read/write logical device track functions so
    that FORMAT.COM is able to verify and modify the partition table
    to successfully format a hard drive image. Also added stub to
    DOS IOCTL "format device track" for FORMAT.COM.
  - You can now force unmount a drive and then mount it to a new
    directory in one command, e.g. "MOUNT C C:\DOS -U" (Wengier)
  - REN command can now rename directories (in addition to files) on
    FAT drives just like on local drives (Wengier)
  - Several improvements to DEL command, such as a new /F option to
    force delete of read-only files, and improved handling when the
    argument is a directory (Wengier)
  - LS command added to list directory contents. It does not support
    all options as in Unix/Linux platform (Wengier)
  - DIR /O & /OG supported in addition to /ON|/OE|/OS|/OD options.
    Options such as /-O & /-A can be used to override /O, /A etc if
    they are specified in the DIRCMD environment varaible (Wengier)
  - DIR and VOL commands now display real serial numbers for mounted
    local drives (Windows only) and FAT drives (Wengier)
  - Fixed SYS command not working properly (Wengier)
  - DOS kernel INT 21h function Set File Attribute no longer
    allows changing volume label attributes and fixes directory
    attributes in order to prevent filesystem corruption.
    This prevents Windows 95 Setup from creating WINBOOT.INI
    and then changing it into a directory with the call.
  - FAT driver bugs fixed where a newly created zero length file
    combined with a lseek() can corrupt filesytem structures
    (root directory and/or the second FAT table). This fixes
    filesystem corruption when running Windows 95 install.
  - Enabled printer emulation for non-Windows OSes (Linux,
    Mac OS X, etc.). FreeType2 is required to enable
    printer emulation at compile time.
  - Added command-line option "-o" for MOUNT command so that
    it can be specified whether to report mounted local drives
    as remote (network) drives. It is "auto" by default just
    like the virtual drive Z:.
  - Added config option "drive z is remote" in dosbox-x.conf
    to report drive Z: as a remote (network) drive. It is
    "auto" by default, which will try to prevent SCANDISK.EXE
    from Windows 9x installs to scan and "repair" drive Z:
    which is not backed by a disk filesystem.
  - Fixed clip_key_modifier setting not working when it is
    set to alt, ctrl or shift in the SDL2 build. (Wengier)
  - Sending "Ctrl+Alt+Del" key from the menu will now reset
    the system within DOSBox-X when the intergrated DOS or a
    real DOS booted from a disk image is active. (Wengier)
  - PC speaker output fixed not to timeout and stop rendering
    unless the PC speaker output is not emitting anything
    audible anyway (Fix for Sopwith 1 and 2).
  - Added ALIAS command to define or display aliases.
  - "HELP command" now works the same as "command /?" for
    supported internal commands. (Wengier)
  - Improved handling of quotes in some commands. (Wengier)
  - Added -set command-line option to change config options.
    It can be specified multiple times for multiple options,
    overriding any options in the config file. For example,
    the command "dosbox-x.exe -set machine=pc98" will force
    DOSBox-X to start in PC-98 mode. (Wengier)
  - Re-added full drive menu items for the Windows platform.
    The "Boot from drive" item (A:, C: and D: drives only)
    should work in other platforms too. The BOOT command is
    also improved to allow e.g. "BOOT A:" to work. (Wengier)
  - INT 10h vector now points into VGA BIOS as a workaround
    for DOS programs that use vector location as part of
    their EGA/VGA detection. This fixes blink attribute
    and EGA/VGA detection failure with SuperCalc 3 and
    SuperCalc 4. This option, enabled by default, can be
    disabled or enabled from dosbox-x.conf.
  - Improved long filename (LFN) and SetFileAttr/GetFileAttr
    support for PC-98 mode. (Wengier)
  - Added config option "lfn" to enable/disable long filename
    (LFN) support. With default setting of "auto", LFN support
    is enabled if the reported DOS version is at least 7.0.
  - Added config option "automountall" (default: false) to
    automatically mount all available Windows drives (Wengier)
  - The copy & paste Windows clipboard text via the right
    mouse button feature now has support for PC-98 mode too
    in addition to other modes. (Wengier)
  - MPU401 IRQ fixed to properly default to 2 or 9 in IBM
    PC/XT/AT mode depending on the "enable slave pic" config
    option (rderooy)
  - Fluidsynth defaults fixed for better more reliable audio
    streaming on Linux and Mac OS X (Wengier and rderooy)
  - Improved support for FluidSynth MIDI device by porting
    code from DOSBox ECE. Set "mididevice=fluidsynth" along
    with other required options such as "fluid.soundfont"
    in dosbox-x.conf to use it. The previous config setting
    "mididevice=synth" is still supported for alternative
    implementation of FluidSynth. (Wengier)

dosbox-x: Update to 0.83.1

  - Sound Blaster emulation fixed to better handle Goldplay
    mode detection false positive in 1994 demoscene demo
    myth_dw.zip when using Sound Blaster Pro setting in
    the demo. The initial state before music starts is
    like Goldplay mode, but when music actually starts the
    DMA programmed to normal state without restarting
    DMA playback.
  - dosbox-x.conf is now recognized as the default config
    file name in addition to dosbox.conf. The sample config
    file "dosbox.reference.conf" has been renamed to
    "dosbox-x.reference.conf" as well (Wengier)
  - Tandy DAC output fixed to slowly ramp last sample to
    zero DC sample (128) when switched off. This fixes
    loud popping (DC offset) problems with Tandy DAC
    sound effects in Prince of Persia. This new behavior
    also seems to match real Tandy 1000 hardware according
    to video captures of it's audio/video outputs while
    playing Prince of Persia on it.
  - Tandy/PCjr 3-voice fixed to respond to I/O port 0xC0
    regardless of 8-bit or 16-bit I/O (fixes Prince of
  - Write-protecting a disk image in IMGMOUNT and BOOT
    commands now supported by putting a leading colon (:)
    before the image file name. Works with disk swapping;
    e.g. "BOOT :C:\DISK1.IMG C:\DISK2.IMG" only write-
    protects C:\DISK1.IMG but not C:\DISK2.IMG. The new
    config option "leading colon write protect image" can
    be used to disable or enable this behavior (Wengier)
  - Support for changing DOSBox-X internal time (Wengier)
  - Support for pipes (|), e.g. "DIR | MORE" should now
    work as expected; it is recommended to set the %TEMP%
    (or %TMP%) environment variable to a writable directory
    inside DOSBox-X before using pipes (Wengier)
  - Improved redirections using "<" or ">" (Wengier)
  - Improved Ctrl+C handling in some commands (Wengier)
  - Improved Tab completion in the command shell (Wengier)
  - Improved -get & -set options for the CONFIG command,
    e.g. support for config options with spaces (Wengier)
  - Improved REN (or RENAME) command to support wildcards
    (* and ?) in the source and/or target files (Wengier)
  - Some improvements to commands like MORE & VER (Wengier)
  - Added BREAK, VERIFY and TRUENAME commands as in a real
    DOS system. Type "[command] /?" for help info (Wengier)
  - Implemented FOR command to run a specified command for
    each file in a set of files. Also added LFNFOR command
    to control whether to use long filenames in the FOR
    command as in MS-DOS 7+ (Wengier)
  - Implemented ATTRIB command to view and set attributes
    of files or directories (Wengier)
  - Added emulation of R (readonly) attribute bit for
    Linux and Unix systems through the user-writable
    file mode bits of the filesystem.
  - Fixed PC DOS 2000 crash during installation.
  - PC speaker: Mode 3 (square wave) and a counter value
    of 1 produces a low frequency square wave. Ulrasonic
    frequencies do not begin until count == 2. This fixes
    helicopter noises in Paratrooper.
  - Fixed PC speaker emulation to allow higher PC speaker
    frequencies (10x the value of pcrate) to reduce
    hiss/noise/aliasing noise that occurs when games
    program ultrasonic frequencies into the counter to
    "silence" the speaker. "Titus the Fox Marrakech and
    Back" should no longer have audible hissing noises
    between beeps when the game is using the PC speaker.
  - Increased DOS device limit, to avoid E_Exit() crash
    if all LPT and COM devices are enabled along with
    the new CLIP$ device.
  - Minimum MCB free default changed to better reflect
    a typical MS-DOS setup with minimal to no drivers.
    This should result in a report of 600K-ish memory
    free, which is equivalent to Windows 95 without
    anything loaded except COMMAND.COM.
  - DIR command now supports /S (search all directories)
    as well as /A, /AS, /A-S, /AH, /A-H, /AR, /A-R, /AA,
    /A-A options for file attribute support; Note that
    DIR /A shows all files and directories whereas DIR
    alone (without /A) shows all except system/hidden
    ones as in a real DOS system (Wengier)
  - DIR command now shows the real free disk space on
    local drives. It is possible to limit this free space
    for certain programs with the -freesize option of
    MOUNT command. A new config option "freesizecap" is
    added to change the behavior of this option (Wengier)
  - DIR command fixed to show the volume label of the
    drive you are listing, instead of always the current
    drive (rderooy)
  - Various improvements to DEL and COPY commands, e.g.
    fixed the DEL /P option having no effect, and "DEL ."
    deleted all files in the current directory silently;
    the COPY command now asks for confirmation before
    overwriting files, and it now supports /Y and /-Y
    options to change this behavior, which can also be
    set from the COPYCMD environment variable. (Wengier)
  - Added or fixed help information and/or error messages
    for some commands. (Wengier)
  - Added support for DOS programs to communicate
    with the clipboard in Windows builds. If the
    "dos clipboard device enable" setting in
    dosbox-x.conf is set to "true" or "full", a DOS
    device (default name: CLIP$) will be added to
    allow bidirectional communications with the
    clipboard (e.g. "DIR >CLIP$" will write the
    output to the clipboard, and "TYPE CLIP$" will
    show the clipboard contents). Alternatively,
    you can set it to "read" or "write" to allow
    only read or write access for security reasons.
    The DOS device name can also be changed with
    the "dos clipboard device name" setting in
    dosbox-x.conf. (Wengier)
  - Added support for using the right mouse button
    to copy and paste from the Windows clipboard; the
    config option "clip_key_modifier" can be used to
    change the keyboard modifier such as none, alt, ctrl,
    shift, or disable this feature (default). (Wengier)
  - Updated the PasteClipboard feature in SDL1 build
    to support Unicode text translations; also fixed this
    feature not working in SDL2 build. The config option
    "clip_paste_speed" is added to speed up or slow down
    the pasting speed for different DOS programs (Wengier)
  - Support for DOSLIB2's w95sysrg/w95sysrs utils to
    get/set system registry location in DOS 7+. (Wengier)
  - Long filename support added, adapted from
    the vDosPlus project. It will be enabled with
    an initial DOS version of 7.0 or higher. (Wengier)
  - Corrected return value when using option to
    fake the installation of SHARE. (Allofich)
  - Added code to EMS emulation to print specific
    debug information when a PC-98 specific call is
    made to remap segment B000h to either system
    memory or video memory. I do not have enough
    test cases or a setup to test what really happens,
    so it will remain a debug message for now.
  - Added dosbox-x.conf option to allow emulation of a
    DOS environment that lacks ANSI.SYS. NOTE: The
    option has no effect in PC-98 mode.
  - INT 2Fh now responds to AX=1A00h which is an installation
    check to report whether ANSI.SYS is resident.
  - Added INT 21h debug logging for file I/O and general
    INT 21h usage [patch by ognjenmi]. Added enables for
    the logging which are off by default since the INT 21h
    and file I/O logging are fairly noisy under normal
