    • Add 68040/60 data cache emulation, with optional MMU support
  • -Memory / MMU / MCU:
    • Add full support for STF/STE MMU/MCU at $FF8001 and address translation (emulate the RAS/CAS signal depending on the size of the memory banks, TOS memory routines don't need to be patched anymore)
    • Better results when reading "void" region between end of RAM and 4MB (return latest data seen on the bus on STF/STE)
    • Add support for more RAM combinations (256 KB and 2.5 MB)
  • Blitter:
    • Add cycle exact bus handling for the blitter (correct bus count for CPU and blitter, suspend/resume blitter after any memory access, run part of next CPU instruction in parallel when starting the blitter)
    • When writing busy bit=0, update interrupt line and don't clear hog bit
  • -Floppy:
    • Emulate ripple carry adder "bug" for STF DMA address at $FF8609/0B/0D

    • Add refresh rate in the status bar (50, 60 or 71 Hz)
    • Disable alt+F4 under Windows so that it doesn't close Hatari (in case alt+F4 is also used in the emulated program)
  • -Display handling:
    • Add --resizable option to control whether Hatari SDL2 window can be resized (= turn it off to prevent accidental resizes)

    • Add 'nSymbolLines' configuration option to specify how many lines 'symbols' command pages
    • 'symbols resident' command and 'bSymbolsResident' config option toggle whether program symbols are removed when program terminates, or only when the next one starts
    • 'symbols match" command and 'bMatchAllSymbols' config option toggle whether TAB completes all symbols or just symbol types relevant for given command
    • 'symbols addr' is split into 'symbols code' & 'symbols data'
