19-Jan-2008 (release 5)
This release is a bit of an odd one.  Marat has been very active lately updating
Colem and is now up to version 2.X on multiple platforms.  His latest version
really has a lot of cool features and compatability improvements.  

My problem is I'm not ready to take the leap into things like network code so
I've backported some of his improvements into my 1.0 source.  At the same time
I've implemented some features of my own.  A 2.X port may follow at some point
but for now I'm sticking with my existing source.

     - Much improved sound.  Still not perfect but more accurate.
     - Improved game compatability
     - Switched to p96WritePixelArray so colors are correct now.
     - "-double" parameter to double screen size
     - "-scanlines" parameter to emulate scan lines 

21-Jun-2006 (release 4)
     - Got the release numbers under control
     - Full screen support (-fullscreen)
     - CVLaunch: new GUI launcher.  Just drop ROMS in roms folder and run CVLaunch

     known bugs:
     - Can have difficulty allocating pens in windowed mode
     - Sound is still limited
     - General compatability is good but not perfect

18-Oct-2005  (release 3)
     - Added first pass at sound using Audio.device
     - Changed some defaults (UPeriod = 1; Verbose = 0)

27-Aug-2005  (release 2)
     - Display "Turn Game Off" screen when no Cart inserted
     - A couple very minor bug fixes

26-Aug-2005  (release 1)
     - First public release
     - No sound in this version
     - Added Pause feature (Pause/Break key on US keyboards)
