Source Changes
--------------
Fixed input port read at init time in grchamp.c. [Curt Coder]

Fixed input port read validation. The previous check was way too
aggressive, and prevented CUSTOM_INPUT handlers from reading other
ports. This one sets an "all clear" flag as soon as the configuration
data is loaded. [Aaron Giles]

GX era haradware: update video parameters to use actual values written
to the CCU. [Yasuhiro Ogawa]

MultiPCM/315-5560 rewrite. All features are now supported including
PLFO and ALFO. [ElSemi]

Fixed read from input port during VIDEO_START in namcofl.c.
[couriersud]

Cleaned up z80dma interface [couriersud]

Implemented 8257 dma controller as proper device [couriersud]

dkong.c: Merge driver init code for drakton and strtheat [couriersud]

Added emulation of ST-0026 NiLe (sound). Added audio to Super
Real Mahjong P6. [Tomasz Slanina, R. Belmont]

i8x41 improvements: [Wilbert Pol]

Converted voodoo into a proper device. Updated drivers accordingly.
[Aaron Giles]

Cal Omega driver updates: [Roberto Fresca]

Save state support: [Aaron Giles]
* added save state support to the MIPS3 recompiler
* added save state support to CAGE audio system
* added save state support to the voodoo emulator
* added save state support to the smc91c9x emulator
* added save state support to the kinst, seattle, and vegas drivers
* fixed core video handling of save states with dynamic screen resolutions
* added save state support to the SHARC CPU core
* added save state support to the PowerPC recompiler
* added save state support to the virtual TLB system
* added save state support to the RF5C400 sound core
* added save state support to konppc module
* added save state support to K056800 host controller
* added save state support to the Konami hornet driver

SMC91C9x: [Aaron Giles]
* converted to proper device
* updated seattle and vegas drivers to allocate devices
* added separate 91C96 device for eventual 2049 use
* cleaned up code

Added machine parameter to memory_region() and memory_region_length()
functions. Cleaned up usage of these throughout the code to cache
pointers rather than calling these functions repeatedly during loops.
[Atari Ace]

Fixed poor default CLUT handling in the voodoo driver. [Aaron Giles]

Added additional Naomi BIOSes. [Brian Troha, Guru]

DRC fixes: [Aaron Giles]

Changed debugger so it does not stop while we are waiting for a
pending event to occur. This eliminates some confusion during reset
and state loading. [Aaron Giles]

Explicitly disabled overlays for non-native snapshots (native
snapshots already had them disabled). [Aaron Giles]

Added more complete readmes for Konami PowerPC games. [Guru]

Cleaned up system register access in Konami PowerPC games. Connected
EEPROM in hornet driver (doesn't seem to affect much). Altered network
IRQ timing to fix several problems. Most games are back to their
previous "working" states. [Aaron Giles]

Changed DRC frontend to pass a pointer to the previous instruction
when describing. Updated PowerPC frontend to approximately take into
account branch and CR logic folding in timing computations.
[Aaron Giles]

Updated cheat system: [Shimapong]

Removed DEBUGGER flag from makefile and ENABLE_DEBUGGER macro from
the source code. All MAME builds now include the debugger, and it is
enabled/disabled exclusively by the runtime command-line/ini settings.
This is a minor speed hit for now, but will be further optimized going
forward. [Aaron Giles]

Changed the 'd' suffix in the makefile to apply to DEBUG builds
(versus DEBUGGER builds as it did before). [Aaron Giles]

Changed machine->debug_mode to machine->debug_flags. These flags now
indicate several things, such as whether debugging is enabled, whether
CPU cores should call the debugger on each instruction, and whether
there are live watchpoints on each address space. Redesigned a
significant portion of debugcpu.c around the concept of maintaining
these flags globally and a similar, more complete set of flags
internally for each CPU. All previous functionality should work as
designed but should be more robust and faster to work with.
[Aaron Giles]

Added new debugger hooks for starting/stopping CPU execution. This
allows the debugger to decide whether or not a given CPU needs to call
the debugger on each instruction during the coming timeslice. Also
added new debugger hook for reporting exceptions. Proper exception
breakpoints are not yet implemented. [Aaron Giles]

Added 360degree wheel (dial) input to GTMR, which is available when
the Controller dip is set to 'Wheel', and Controls dip is set to
'1P Side'. Note when Controls dip is set to 'Both Sides', 270degree
wheel (paddle) input is used. [Minwah]

Verified clocks and adjusted sound volumes in Fairyland Story.
[Corrado Tomaselli]

More conversion to input_port_read: [Fabio Priuli]

Fixed missing sha1 values in ampoker2.c, atarigx2.c, cabal.c, and
ksys573.c. [John Gilbert]

Fixed a few build problems with the cpu/sound cores M65CE02,
ALPHA8201, TMC0285, TMS5200 and corrected the dependencies for
the mips core. [Atari Ace]

Finish the work on ddragon3: [Sonikos]

Set OKI 6295 pin 7 to high in gotcha driver. [Sonikos]

Fixed make MSVC_BUILD=1 -j2 and corrected an oversight in the
cross-build support. [Atari Ace]

Cleaned up most of the Machine stuff in src/emu/machine. There is
a bit left to clean up, but it's mostly stuck at some interfaces now.
[Oliver Stoeneberg]
