DIFF updates are not really releases. Since the diff file is not the emulator. Thats why I never name the title a release.



The 'u' releases are the intermediate versions released as source only by MameDEV between full numbered versions, and as such may be more unstable than the full releases.

I take it thats only the standard build ?


Yes, I just post what works on everyone's computers, nothing special.

I don't post the source either, as no-one here would use it. Those that need it know where it is.

I compile the I686 build as it seems to run better on most PC's even older ones . Which I also use on my older P3 600MHZ ..
