    Libretro’s Twitter account had already teased us by saying a new Retroarch version was coming our way and now they’ve kept their promise!
    RetroArch v1.7.6 is now available for download from their website. The new release includes an initial PS2 port (which includes four cores at the moment: FCEUmm, QuickNES, Picodrive and 2048), a new menu driver called Ozone made by @natinusala inspired by the Nintendo Switch's UI, a theme format for RGUI - aka RetroArch' simpler user interface used by default on some cores & ports, and finally Discord matchmaking. The update also announces ports for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (UWP) consoles but due to a few issues, such as slow loading times on the latter, they have not been officially released yet, although unofficial builds for the UWP version are already available to be downloaded elsewhere.

    There are also many more smaller changes and improvements of course. Here is the full changelog:
    1.7.6 Changelog

    Here are also some more changes that were not yet mentioned in the changelog, including various Switch-specific ones (thanks @m4xw ! Links to his posts: #1 and #2)
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    This new version is currently available for all platforms except Mac OS X (PPC) and Xbox. If you are interested, you can download it from RetroArch's downloads page.

    ozone has been available for a while now, but it was never publicly announced, so now the release is proper :P

    Jokes aside, good job on Ozone! It looks really good and I'll definitely use it over XMB from now on! ^_^

    Lol we have a few compiled elf’s and pkgs available in private, but that’s just it, nothing is public yet :( I hoped this release would push it forward.

    I'd also love to know that. I have configured a lot of shit and that would be a fucked up situation if I had to do it again.

    When I load a game using mupen next, it loads it using mupen plus on switch. Is it supposed to do that.

    Edit
    Noticed even though I updated assets on hb menu it still says I’m on version 1.7.5, I’ll manually update later.
    This is what happens after I load core, it loads correctly but when I load rom it changes. Will read change log again maybe this is normal. It does seem to show I have a different version of mupen than the one I posted today on the beta thread. Not sure if my mupen was up to date on that thread.
