Une version Beta public de l’excellent WinUAE.

– WinUAE is now native unicode application (internally all strings are NT native UTF16-LE format instead of 8-bit « ANSI ») What does this mean?
+ lots of breakage possible, size of one byte = size of one character isn’t true anymore and finding all cases is difficult. Report all mysterious crashes (they are usually easily duplicated)
+ Windows<>Amiga directory filesystem character set conversion can be configured (Windows « code page » may not match Amiga charset = « special » characters should work better now. Default is CP 1252 which is functionally identical to Amiga standard ISO-8859-1)
+ logs and configuration.cache are UTF-8 formatted (UTF-8 is more human readable than UTF-16), « old » charset supported
+ log window supports unicode now, no more weird characters in (for example) device names containing national characters
+ configuration files are still in old format (would cause too many problems with old versions and front ends..)
+ I simply wanted to do this when I dropped 98/ME support but I wasn’t ready until now. (also most new Vista+ APIs are unicode only, converting between ansi<>unicode was getting too annoying)

– ACTION_EXAMINE_ALL was quite broken, it always returned full directory entry data (wrong variable used..) Most (all) programs didn’t care.
– « not implemented error » filesystem warning is now shown to user (nobody apparently noticed it in the log = I can never fix it..)
– directory filesystem >2G files are shown as 2G minus 1 byte (instead of truncating to 32-bit and showing negative or other random sizes), >4G files internally supported
– directory filesystem ACTION_CHANGE_FILE_POSITION64, ACTION_GET_FILE_POSITION64, ACTION_CHANGE_FILE_SIZE64 and ACTION_GET_FILE_SIZE64 implemented (OS4+ packets but also supported by 68k SFS2)
– ignore all input events (except activation events or if mousehack is enabled) if no focus and not active (previously only focus was required)
