DeSmuME v0.9.11 now released! 8 years, 8 months ago #4047

For anyone interested in Nintendo DS emulation -- DeSmuME has been updated to v0.9.11! This was a very Mac-focused released, with some features being Mac-only. If anyone has given up on Mac DeSmuME in the past due to its former bad reputation, I strongly encourage you to try out v0.9.11. DeSmuME has finally gotten past the bad old days of v0.9.6.


From the v0.9.11 release notes:
In this version, we have focused on the Cocoa frontend, but there have been some good core fixes over so long. Notably, the save-related issues resulting in the advice "dont use 0.9.10" have been resolved.
