openMSX 18.0 released

The openMSX team has just released their latest MSX emulator software version. With openMSX 18.0 we’re approaching perfect emulation even a bit further. As always, free to use. Update your running instance now.

If you’re a modern computer user still engaging with the good-old Z80, then openMSX is your weapon of choice. With the aim for perfect emulation, the openMSX software runs your favorite MSX software on the fly. Not only game fanatics get their high, it is also the perfect way of rendering new software. As a software developer this emulation is your tool as well.

openMSX 18.0 – “Lucky Number” – is again a release with mostly bug fixes and smaller improvements. And a little more blasphemy out there adding support for Sega SG-1000. As long as it isn’t supporting C64, we’re cool with this. Together with openMSX an updated version of Catapult, the user-friendly GUI, was also released. No functional changes in Catapult however.

For a complete list of changes, read the release notes for openMSX 18.0.
