Since the last public release, I've completely rewritten the memory mapping and cartridge loading systems. With this, I've added preliminary support for the Broadcast Satellaview (BS-X), however very few BS-X games will run at this time. I've also switched compilers from Visual C++/8 to MinGW/GCC4, which grants a ~5-10% speedup over the previous release.

• Major source code cleanup
• Completely rewrote memory mapper to support runtime MMCs
• Updated S-DD1 MMC to use new memory mapping interface
• Improved S-DD1 emulation, thanks to information from orwannon
• Added support for SameGame -- load via "Load Special -> Load BS-X Slotted Cart" menu option
• Completely rewrote cartridge loader to support BS-X, BS-X slotted carts and ST carts
• Created custom dialog windows for multicart loading
• Improved generic memory mapper, which eliminates the need for cart.db [Nach]
• Added BS-X slotted cart detection to generic memory mapper [Nach]
• Linux port will now ignore keypresses when window is inactive
• Linux port will use much less CPU power when idle
• Added detailed compilation instructions to Makefile for Linux port
• Added "make install" target and PNG program icon for Linux port
• Switched Windows compiler to MinGW/GCC4
• Windows executable is now packed with UPX to decrease filesize
• Removed .ufo, .gd7 and .078 ROM extensions; added .bs extension
• Added preliminary support for the BS-X base unit, BS-X base cartridge + MMC, and BS-X flash I/O
