* DosBox 0.74-3, based on svn build r4293 (11.20.2019)

r2 (28.1.2020)

-- alt+enter to switch window/fullscreen fixed (SDL2, (c) Capehill)
-- build with native threads instead of pthreads (SDL2, (c) Capehill)
-- added 3 unofficial types of scalers: normal4.x, normal5.x, and normal6.x:
they good for those who want to make big scaling for modes such as 1920x1080,
1920x1200 and more.
-- fixed a big bug about colors being rendered wrong in 15,16 and 32 video modes
(hugi, the 11th hour, screamer2, earth2140, tomb raider and all others which may
use more than 8bit). Thanks to all people involved: jmarsh, dreamer, zukow and
-- in default config change "joysticktype" be "auto" (so detect joystick by
default). Sometime it may cause some issues in some games (that why it was
disabled), so if you see some "auto pressing" then disable joystick for that

r1 (22.1.2020)

-- added PowerPC Dynamic Recompiler (JIT) (c) jmarsh : x3 times speed up
-- fix for driver_fat.cpp to work on big-endian system (c) jmarsh
-- migrated to SDL2 now instead of SDL1 (c) NY00123.
-- added stack cookie of 2mb
-- added "version" support
-- compiled via gcc8.2.0

An old version of DOSBox port from 13.08.2011 by Corto (whole archive), included
too. Check the "old" directory if you need one.

* How to use

Just run DOSBox. OS4 version comes with DOSBox.conf, which is taken as default
one by DOSBox, and which is tuned to use JIT (core=dynamic, cycles=max). You may
want to play with "cycles" numbers instead of "auto" for your game of choice to
finetune the best performance.

Please refer to original DOSBox documentation about how to use it at

* Thanks to

Capehill for never ended work with SDL1 and SDL2
Jmarsh for PPC JIT and other endian related fixes
NY00123 for SDL1->SDL2 patch
OS4 users from amigans.net for testing (samo, mufa and others)
