    Martin Korth released version 2.7c of no$gba yesterday, it features several updates to the emulation but one of the most notable changes is the move of the debugger version to be freeware. You can still donate on the website if you wish to support his work.
    For those unaware no$gba is one of the best GBA debugging emulators and probably the best DS one presently available. It has features useful for homebrew developers and ROM hackers alike.
    Those interested in the debugger can find out more here.
    On the subject of debugging the legendary gbatek specifications have had a fairly big revamp. http://problemkaputt.de/gbatek.htm has them.
    http://problemkaputt.de/gbapics.htm has screenshots of the debugging mode.

    Changelog.

    Is this the source-level debug version or the normal debug version?

    Great ! The dev version has no more hang and a huge boost when you boot a game using NDS menu (needed with encrypted roms like AAI2)

    Been a long time since there was a last update, really like it. Glad the guy quits the paying downloads, he deserves a lot of recognition for this work though!
    Thanks, will enjoy this

    Is this really malware free? My virus scan immediately removes it upon downloading...

    Just a question has anyone tested b/w or hg/ss w/o the patch because I know Desmume runs those games just fine

    I'll just test HG myself and see if it freezes

    nope bw2 still has the "save file cannot be accessed" error

    Nice. I always found No$GBA's debugger to be superior to DeSmuME's, while this won't make a difference to most people it's great news :)

    However I'm expecting this to be the final version. It's just a hunch, but I have a feeling he's releasing the debugger as the final version because he's stopping work on it.

    Coming soon, I hope No$gmb will make ALMOST FREEWARE soon after long time becomes payware because of Gameboy Color.... plus, never updated more than 10 years since 2000. After that, time for upcoming No$3ds version soon!

    Now maybe one day he'll release the Source Code. Somebody could port it to Retroarch and make No$GBA available on multiple OSs and devices. Same thing for no$PSX.
