Here's whatsnew:

New System Drivers Supported (in no particular order):
- Apogee BK-01 [Miodrag Milanovic]
- Chuang Zao Zhe 50 / Dina / Personal Arcade [Curt Coder]
- Galaksija Plus [Miodrag Milanovic]
- Grundy NewBrain A/AD/MD (not working) [Curt Coder]
- Mikrosha [Miodrag Milanovic]
- OSCOM Nano [Curt Coder, HobbyLabs]
- Partner-01.01 [Miodrag Milanovic]
- Radio-86RK [Miodrag Milanovic]
- Sega SC-3000H [Curt Coder]

System Driver Changes:
- [ABC80] Fixed graphics mode and lower case natural input. [Curt Coder]

- [ABC80X] Fixed lower case natural input. [Curt Coder]

- [AMIGA] Fixed Keyboard. (bug #1590) [Roberto Zandona']

- [AMIGACD / AMIGAFDC] Fixed a couple of regressions introduced in 0.125.
Still CDTV regression is not fixed. [Fabio Priuli]

- [AQUARIUS] Added support for cartridges and .wav tape images (bug #158).
Fixed tilemap and added AY-3-8910 sound. [Curt Coder]

- [B2M] Added SHA-1's. [Fabio Priuli]

- [BW2] System is now working. [Curt Coder]

- [C128] fix for c128 keyboard (bug #1240) [Roberto Zandona']

- [C64] Joystick fix. (bug #1150) [Roberto Zandona']

- [COCO] Changed MUX delay from 16us to 8us to fix a joystick input bug under
[Nitr]OS-9. Since this delay was introduced to fix Photon (as per bug #655)
and we've been unable to test Photon, it is unclear whether this reintroduces
bug #655. (bug #1608) [Nate Woods]

- [COMMODORE] Large clean-up of input ports across Commodore machines (Amiga
excluded) [Fabio Priuli]:
* created machine/cbmipt.c to reduce duplicate code across drivers
and hidden dependencies;
* converted to tagged inputs;
* added partial natural keyboard support (keys are almost all there,
but there are still a few issues);
* replaced a lot of constants with direct reads to tagged inputs,
cleaning up most of the Commodore files in includes/ ;
* simplified interrupt handling for c64 and c16;
* fixed pet.c machines which were starting Caps Lock'ed;
* propagated ':/;' fixes (from rev. 2542) to all the drivers with the
same error;
* removed some dead code for cart handling (never fully implemented
and obsolete after rev. 2421);
* removed hacked SID from c16;
* fixed key mappings to follow the real keyboard (also added plus4
input ports for this same reason);
* documented keyboard layouts.
