â€¢ Improved block managers for EE/IOP recompilers. Basic asm optimizations combined with a technique of replacing NULL/invalid pointer checks with a direct link to a JIT dispatcher.
â€¢ IOP Fixes and Optimizations
â€¢ A couple of important VIF fixes
â€¢ Started some work on the pcsx2 emitter
â€¢ Usual opcodes fixes
â€¢ More recompiled opcodes added
â€¢ New EE rec "full" clamp mode, for a few picky games
â€¢ Usual code cleanups and reorganizations
â€¢ Usual speed optimizations (varies from game to game)
â€¢ Some EE interpreters fixes
â€¢ Added new, temporary gamefix for God of war and persona 3. If you have missing textures with this beta, you can try that.
â€¢ Major GUI API Cleanups
â€¢ Savestate version upgrade and stability fix
â€¢ New yuv2rgb decoder which is up to IPU spec (which differs slightly from MPEG spec). Improves color hue/saturation on many vids, and is a bit faster too.
â€¢ Many other small bugfixes and optimizations
Also included, gsdx, spu2-x and lilypad as of 9th of march 2009. Don't expect huge gains, as always.
