Source Changes
--------------
- Considerably improved UART communications in the CD-i 68070
implementation, increasing Quizard stability as a result. [Harmony]

Fixed use of the sign bits on the SegaCD Roz parameters, improves
the SegaCD intro rotations etc. which now appear correct. Clamp Roz
stuff to 24-bit, seems to fix the remaining issues with the Sega
logos. [David Haywood]

Moved -effect implementation out of OSD code and into core since the
implementations were identical across Windows/SDL and implemented in
the core itself. [Aaron Giles]

More Clang fixes (verified OK with GCC) [Balrog]

Correctly free textures when screen size dynamically changes. Fixes
texture assert when exiting on a number of games. [Aaron Giles]

Attempt to provide a correct M50458 char rom, used by the Nintendo
Super System [Pat Dardenko, Angelo Salese]

Re-worked Quizard MCU communications handling to be more easily
expanded. [Harmony]

Convert rendlay objects into C++, reduce the number of unused textures
allocated. [Aaron Giles]

Fix texture leak in crsshair.c. [Aaron Giles]

Added new method reset_origin() to screen devices to allow
manual synchronization of VBLANK start against an external timing
source. Updated the MC6845 device to call reset_origin() on its screen
at the start of each frame if a screen is present. [Aaron Giles]

Converted the RCA CDP1802 CPU into a C++ device. Refactored cidelsa.c
to use the new RCA COSMAC CPU. [Curt Coder]

Added new devcb type DEVCB_TYPE_DRIVER, which implies the
driver_device. [Aaron Giles]

Added new macros DEVCB_DRIVER_LINE_MEMBER and DEVCB_DRIVER_MEMBER to
specify member functions of the driver device in callbacks.
[Aaron Giles]

Reworked NMK16 irqs by not using cpu_getiloops() function
[Angelo Salese]

Fix custom mapping for dsp56k internal memory. [Aaron Giles]

Refactored the CDP1869 chip into a C++ device. [Curt Coder]

Added explicit control handler for the console. Ctrl+C/Ctrl+Break now
explicitly terminate the process forcefully, rather than unwinding
through the system in an unexpected state. Other console events (exit,
shutdown, logoff) request a graceful exit. [Aaron Giles]

Reworked 1942 interrupts by not using cpu_getiloops() function
[Angelo Salese]

Removed deprecat.h usage from 1943 driver [Angelo Salese]

Removed deprecat.h usage from 40love driver [Angelo Salese]

Removed deprecat.h usage and did some minor clean-ups to the 4enraya
driver [Angelo Salese]

Rewrote Alien Command irqs by not using cpu_getiloops() function
[Angelo Salese]

New games added or promoted from NOT_WORKING status
---------------------------------------------------
Devil Island (2 sets) [Brian Troha, The Dumping Union]

New clones added
----------------
Streaking (set 2) [Roberto Fresca]

New games marked as GAME_NOT_WORKING
------------------------------------
Magical Touch [Siftware, Mariusz Wojcieszek]

Cheers!
