After all the fun and games with Raspbian Stretch, SDL and GCC this month, I don’t have the enery to write a witty release note for the new MAME, my apologies to all those who eagerly anticipate my acid wit and pithy prose, I shall do better next month.

There is the usual encyclopaedia of improvements and fixes in the whatsnew. Here is the official announcement about the release and this is the official release page where you can get the Windows build (why would you want that‽) or the source code if you fancy a confused look and a major headache! Visit the Github page to see all the code monkey mutterings.

A macOS build is now available on my MAME page, it was built using the latest Sierra build and XCode 8. There is also a Raspberry Pi version built with the newly released Raspbian Stretch, a custom SDL2 and GCC 6.3.
