    Yes, it’s been a while since the last release, but we haven’t been completely idle. There’s a brand new top shelf Cocoa frontend to make life far more pleasant for OSX users, and a host of compatibility fixes.

    Awesome, it's the DS emulator I've been using for some time now whenever I'd want to play a DS game.

    Amazing DS emu. I've used a lot of other DS emus and this one is the best IMO.

    Yay, just when I was beginning to think they too had gotten over DS emulation leaving the scene effectively dead. Looks like quite a big list changes too though considering how well DeSmuME already worked before I'm not sure how much will filter through to the end user but it's still good to see anyways.

    Only reason I wont use then any time soon is that my pc is far to weak to run it considering ht specs are up there with the other heavy emulators such as PCSX2 and Dolphin. Once I get a new pc I will be giving this one a shot again. Currently use No$GBA for ds emulation becuase it runs a lot better for me then this emulator does.

    Technically not true since DeSmuME will run fine on a decently clocked dual core CPU. Dolphin and PCSX2 however can lag even on a quad-core overclocked system.

    Might be the same as far as your situation goes but it's very far from the same thing.

    This release is so much better than the previous version, i can feel a speed up in the games i tried, and games with streaming audio playback like:

    "Elite Beat Agents"
    "Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan-(J)"
    "Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan - 2-(J)"

    Plays at full speed now on my machine, you need to set frame skipping to 1 and set the audio to "Synchronous" in the audio setting since that's the one specially for streaming audio.

    Also setting frame skipping to 1 helped most of the games i tried and i hardly see any skipping at all (compared to version 0.9.7, which was slow as hell and skipping a LOT!).

    There's a bug in "Tales of Innocence" if you set frame skip to 1 tho, the screen gets all shaky and part of the screen gets distorted and move to different places.

    -Final verdict:

    This version blows 0.9.7 out of the water and i recomend it to anyone, while 0.9.8 is still slower than "no$gba 2.6a" it is much better and faster than 0.9.7.

    This version is awesome.. My PC is not up to speed to run it 100%, but I did try the AVI recording and OMG, games are recorded glitch free, silky smooth. Even though it slows down my PC down to a crawl, it still records beautifully. Can't wait to try this out in the future with a smoking rig.
