This emulator aims at providing excellent accuracy and performance, a user-friendly interface, and consistent builds.

Most of the development happens on GitHub. It’s also where their central repository is hosted.

For the next update they plan to have support for basic framebuffer display working, it should take a fraction of the 2 months this version took.
