The DOSEMU team is proud to announce DOSEMU 0.60, the PC Emulator for Linux!

DOSEMU is a PC Emulator application that allows Linux to run a DOS
operating system in a virtual x86 machine.  This allows you to run
many DOS applications.  These are capabilities of DOSEMU worth noting:

  - Color text and full keyboard emulation (via hotkeys) via terminal
  - Built-in X-Windows support, includes IBM character set font!
  - Graphics capability at the console with most compatible video cards.
  - Much-improved DPMI support.
  - Runs Borland BCC.EXE / TCC.EXE version 3.x command line compilers!
  - Borlandc C++ 3.x IDE (with emumodule.o or kernel patch)
  - Runs several 32-bit DPMI-compilant video games, including DOS/4GW,
     at the Linux console.  A partial list of successfully tested games 
     includes DOOM2, Heretic, Descent, MK2, OMF2097, ROTT, and WarCraft!
  - Games runs *MUCH* faster in dosemu due to improved timer emulation
  - FreeBSD verison of DOSEMU under development, contact
  - CDROM support

  - Linux 1.1.31+ (with IPC support, IPX support optional)
  - GCC 2.6.3 and LIBC 4.6.27 are recommended for best results.
  - Plenty of swap, since DOSEMU requires between 12 and 25 megabytes
     of total memory to compile, depending on Makefile configuration.

This release could not have gotten out the door without the work of
the our relentless development team and friends, currently consisting
of at least:

  Jon Tombs            	Aaron			Karl Kiniger
  Daniel R. Barrlow	Christoph Niemann	Theadore Tso
  Derek Fawcus		Linus Torvalds		Alan Cox
  Alessandro Rubini	Corey Sweeney		James Maclean
  Hans Lermen		Andrew.Tridgell		Jochen Hein
  Jason E Gorden	Lam Lai Yin, Savio	Alistair MacDonald
  Lawrence K Mao	Ronnie			Mark Rejhon
  Michael E. Deisher	Larry Stephan		Lutz Molgedey
  Amit Margalt 		Marty Leisner 		Dong Liu
  Scott Buchholz 	Tim Van der Linden 	John Davis
  Kang-Jin Lee 		Matthew Grant 		David Hansen
  John Kohl 		Kevin P Lawton 		Rod May	
  Wayne P Meissner 	Vinod G Kulkarni 

The DOSEMU PC Emulator can be downloaded from the following FTP sites
when version 0.60.0 arrives on April the 1st:

We expect to see DOSEMU being included as an extra with many Linux 
Distribution packages.

If you haven't used DOSEMU in several months (Especially if the last 
version you used was DOSEMU 0.52 or earlier), please go to great
caution to read the "QuickStart" file included with DOSEMU since 
the location and format of files (including the configuration file) has 
changed since the DOSEMU 0.50pl1.  

While DOSEMU may be more stable than many of the previous releases, it
must be noted that it is still possible to crash the Linux video and 
keyboard, if you don't follow instructions properly.  In this case, it
becomes necessary to use a remote terminal or even the RESET button,
to reboot the system.

The main risks of DOSEMU are the 'graphics' capability and 'rawkeyboard'.
These can be disabled in the DOSEMU configuration file, to make DOSEMU
become bullet-proof, at the cost of some convenience.

Many thanks to all who have helped with this release, by sending bug 
reports, patches, comments and/or ideas for DOSEMU!  My apologies for 
not having answered every letter, and possibly missing some important 
information.  If you know something you think we should know, 
contact us, PLEASE!  We can be reached at: (The DOSEMU team)
