- Loaders only updated for card being used (e.g. - AK2 users only download ak2loader)

- Many loaders are beta, know this and shut up
- Manual download page @ http://akaio.gbatemp.net/loaders/
+ Wifi Cheat Update has resume support!

NOTE: because of new font system, language files now need to be utf8. Some have been converted such as English and Japanese but others will need to be saved as utf8 to work properly.

- Folders that only allow one cheat selected now function properly
- Separate icon for skinners for single-select folders (see included skins)
+ Animal Crossing cheats on AK2. (Use the v1.1 rom as v1.0 will not work anymore).
+ Unicode font loads on a per-ROM basis
- Default font is "kochi-mincho-subst.pcf" in /__aio/fonts directory, old unicode font removed (was 2x the size)
- Skinners may add their own custom font to their ui's directory
- New line in uisettings.ini "customUnicodeFont = xxxxxx.pcf" will load that font instead of default
+ Ability to hide extensions by manually adding "hideExtension = 1" to globalsettings.ini
+ DMA mode on AK2 (Hold A while loading a game to use non-DMA mode: Red text = DMA / Blue text = non-DMA).
+ New Super Mario Brothers Minigames on AK2: If they don't work, set Download Play to "Disabled" and boot in non-DMA mode (hold down A while loading)
+ Misc bug fixes (Too many to list).

These external loaders rock! Thanks for this great release! I didn't expect anything new for the final version... I was very wrong!

Sweet release, thanks! About the fonts...

Where can we find suitable unicode PCF fonts? Kochi gothic rather than mincho would be more legible (kana and kanji) at those sizes. I've tried taking fonts out of X11 distributions but couldn't find one with the right size. Thanks
