Hi everyone! Hopefully you all had a great New Year if you celebrate that kind of thing, and hopefully you’ve had some time to enjoy MAME 0.251 as well! All of us at MAMEdev agree 2022 was a massive year for MAME development, and we want to thank everyone who’s helped achieve that. MAME wouldn’t be what it is without all your contributions, whether it’s bug reports, pull requests, pre-release testing, helping out new users, or just letting us know that you appreciate our work.
We’ve got some really big stuff in the pipeline, but it’s going to take a bit longer than usual to make sure it’s ready for prime time. As such, there won’t be a January MAME release this year, but we’re fairly confident we can have MAME 0.252 out by the end of February. If you want a taste of some of the things that are coming, you can get the very latest source code from our repository on GitHub and compile it by following the instructions on our documentation site. Once again, thanks for your continued support, and have an awesome 2023!
