What's new

A new version of DOSBox has been released, with tons of new stuff :)

DOSBOx is an x86 emulator with DOS, VGA and Sound Blaster emulation. The perfect thing to run your old PC games on a recent computer. The core is still a pure interpreter, so it needs a rather powerfull computer to run the most demanding games (games that required a 486 or a Pentium)

Grab it here: http://dosbox.sourceforge.net

After a long time DOSBox 0.60 is finally released.

The most new important feature: basic protected mode

A full changelog is included below.

Please note that the configuration files have changed: not
all options present in 0.58 will work in 0.60.

Dosbox is still a full emulator. So games designed for a
pentium are very very very slow.

This version has the same problems with non-us keyboards
as the 0.58 release. To fix this:
1. either change you keyboard layout to us.
2. try another key (for \ use /)
3. put the commands with in the configfile

We've update the homepage as well so it can support more
than one version of dosbox :)

Have Fun!
