    Higan version 099 was released today!

    Time for a new release. There are a few important emulation improvements and a few new features; but for the most part, this release focuses on major code refactoring, the details of which I will mostly spare you.

    The major change is that, as of v099, the SNES balanced and performance cores have been removed from higan. Basically, in addition to my five other emulation cores, these were too much of a burden to maintain. And they've come along as far as I was able to develop them. If you need to use these cores, please use these two from the v098 release.

    I'm very well aware that ~80% of the people using higan for SNES emulation were using the two removed profiles. But they simply had to go. Hopefully in the future, we can compensate for their loss by increasing the performance of the accuracy core.

    If you want to know more about the removal of these two profiles, please read this article for a more in-depth explanation.

    Higan reached into version 100!!! Nice number, Byuu! :P Here the info!

    I feel it's important to stress right away that this is not "version 1.00", nor is it a major milestone release. Rather than arbitrary version numbers, all of my software simply bumps version numbers by one for each official release. As such, higan v100 is simply higan's 100th release.

    That said, the primary focus of this release has been code clean-ups. These are always somewhat dangerous in that regressions are possible. We've tested through sixteen WIP revisions, one of which was open to the public, to try and minimize any regressions. But all the same, please report any regressions if you discover any.

    Change Log!

    Here the notes!
