For all of you who have been directed here, there has been a new update: https://gbatemp.net/threads/melonds-for-switch.518300/page-47#post-8948531

ok, here is it now, a small update, with all of the changes which accumulated over the week.

Changelog:
  • Fix Dragon Quest IX whitescreen while booting
  • Fix Pokemon White/Black(haven't tested the latter) not saving
  • Added error message, which is displayed when files are missing/couldn't be found
  • Clicking on gui element on top of the emulated touchscreen is now only registered a gui click
  • Allow booting games via the bios menu, uncheck boot directly to do so
  • Audio output is rewritten to use audren. This fixes sound not working after going into homemenu/sleep. As a positive side effect, sound is now also recorded when using HOS clip capture feature
  • By pressing the left stick down microphone (noise) input is simulated
  • Allow for turning off literal optimisations, if a game doesn't work properly please report whether this and/or turning off branch optimisations helps!
  • Some other small bugs.
Please note that I want to focus fixing bugs and improving performance of the emulation itself. So expect to see only minor improvements on the interface side for the time being (except save states, I just noticed that those would be quite useful to have them for debugging).

EDIT: it's DQ 9 not 11 :)
EDIT2: here's a build which also allows to open and close the lid, as requested by @angelhp

Can you add ability to close/open lid ?

@catlover007 will you tackle performance improvements for the GL rendering at some point?
besides us still not knowing why the GL renderer only renders corrupted graphics on the switch, it unfortunately comes with a certain base overhead, which makes it too slow for the switch. That's why we're going to stick with the threaded sw renderer, which still bears a lot more optimisation potential.

As I already wrote further improving the performance of the core emulation is one of my main priorities:
