Stella est un émulateur Atari VCS 2600 multi-platforme, releasé sous licence GPL. A la base le projet a été développé pour Linux par Bradford W. Mott, cependant de nombreuses personnes ont rejoint l’équipe de développement pour porter Stella sur différents système d’exploitation comme AcornOS, AmigaOS, DOS, FreeBSD, IRIX, Linux, GP2X, OS/2, MacOS, Unix, et Windows (ouf!).

– Added AtariVox support using a real AtariVox device, where Stella sends data directly to the AtariVox. For now, this is supported in Linux/UNIX, OSX, and Win32 only. You’ll obviously need a real AtariVox, and a serial<->USB adaptor to connect it to your system.
– Added ‘-avoxport’ commandline argument used to set the serial port to which the AtariVox is connected. Special thanks to Al Yarusso and Richard H. for providing sample hardware.
– Added AtariVox and SaveKey EEPROM emulation. This reads/writes data to a 32KB file, not to the actual hardware. Very useful for testing EEPROM support without actually wearing out the real device. Special thanks to J. Payson for providing the EEPROM emulation code, and A. Herbert for answering many driver-related questions.
– Added support for CX-22, CX-80, and AmigaMouse trackball controllers.
– Improved debugger symfile handling so that addresses accessed as read-only won’t use write-only labels (and vice-versa). More work is still needed in this area.
– Added M6532/RIOT tab to the debugger. This will be expanded on in a future release.
– Added TIA emulation fixes for graphical glitches in Escape from the Mindmaster, Mission Survive, Solaris, and SWOOPS!
– Fixed bug where fullscreen OpenGL scaling wasn’t working on 4:3 monitors.
– Further improvements to the M6532/RIOT emulation, which unfortunately have broken old state files (again).
– Added deadzone setting, for adjusting the deadzone amount for analog joysticks. This can be set using the commandline argument ‘-joydeadzone’ or dynamically within the UI.
– Make ROM disassembly in debugger take advantage of a wide window.
– Fixed bug in 6507 BCD handling introduced in the last release.
– For the Win32 port; Win9x should be fully supported again.
