Emulator Stella 2.4
System PC (DOS,Windows,Unix/Linux,MacOS,BSD),GP2X,Amiga,etc.

A portable Atari 2600 (VCS) emulator available for many systems

Changelog:
------------
* Added new video sub-system where fullscreen and windowed modes are treated
differently. Windowed modes now use '-zoom_tia' and '-zoom_ui' arguments,
while fullscreen modes can be specified by resolution using the new
'-fullres' argument.
* Widescreen video modes are now supported; Stella will simply center the
image with surrounding black borders.
* Many UI-related changes, including resizable ROM launcher and debugger
windows, and a new UI palette (the previous 'classic' palette is still
available). This is still a work in progress.
* The locations of all major config files (statedir, palette file,
cheat file, properties file, etc) are now configurable from the
commandline and within the UI.
* Updates to TIA palette support. Added SECAM support, and removed the
built-in 'original' palette. Standard, z26, and user are still
available.
* Various bugfixes to some debugger commands. The 'run' command no
longer causes a crash, and several others have better error-checking.
* Added more complete cartridge auto-detection for Commavid (CV), 3E,
3F and Activision (FE) formats.
* Removed XStart and Width ROM properties, since the forthcoming TIA
rework won't be using them.
* Reworked internal storage of ROM properties to be faster and take up
less space.
* Added several different ways of stretching the OpenGL image to the
'-gl_fsmax' argument, for more flexibility.
* Removed OpenGL aspect ratio setting favour of the previously mentioned
video changes. We'll see how this goes.
* Removed dirty-rect support from software rendering, since it was actually
sub-optimal in Windows and OSX and defaulted to off in previous versions.
* Added support for gzipped ROMs.
* Re-added pause support.
* Re-added support for Windows 98.
* Removed support for 'STELLA_BASEDIR' environment variable, since each
config file can be now configured separately.
* Removed '-fastscbios' argument, since it must always be turned on.
* Removed PSP support, since it hasn't been updated in over a year, and
someone else is maintaining another port elsewhere.
* For the Unix/Linux port; fixed 'make install' issues, and changed icon to
PNG format.

Emulator NeonDS 0.11
System PC (Win32)

A very fast and promising NDS emulator for Windows

Taken straight from the horses mouth:
"In the next two weeks I'll be busy moving my home to another city,so I won't have any time to work on this emulator. So, here I release a version with incomplete 3D support. Although the 3D support is not complete yet, there are already some games playable.
I have updated the wiki with some of my testing results."


Here is the list of updates in this version:

3D display engine (incomplete yet)
Replace D3D with OpenGL for display rendering
Supports 2x display zooming
Fixed some DMA bugs
