? That's what this thread is for
BIG NEW FEATURES IN 0.9.8
It has been 2 years since our last stable release and today we (finally) bring you the newest stable release: 0.9.8!
We have a completely new GUI made with wxWidgets to make the whole user experience simpler and more user friendly, whilst providing us with a platform in which we can easily add new features.
This new GUI brings with it a much improved Linux support, as this is a completely cross platform user interface.
a new Memory Card manager, providing the flexibility to use customly named or downloaded cards with sizes of 8 to 64 megabytes.
Host file system and ELF loading support has been improved too.
Patches and compatibility hacks are now automatically applied by default. With this you don't have to sit there for ages playing around to find that 1 option that fixes your game; If we know about it, we've already set it!
many internal changes to improve our overall compatibility
the SPU2-X sound plugin, which has been worked on thoroughly to improve the sound generation, provide different audio output options and filtering, but also internal changes to improve the compatibility with games such as Burnout 3 which had never booted on any previous version of PCSX2!

In all we now have around 65% of all tested games marked as playable, and at least 85% get "ingame".
This means that over 1500 of the tested games are fully playable!
