So, what does this mean for FBA? No new releases are promised in the future. The FBA Team seems to have disbanded a while back and we all seem to be doing different things now. I caught the emulation bug again at the back end of last year and since FBA was rather out of date I have decided to release this update. New releases may follow depending how long the bug lasts....
