This is a good news, although not for me because I have to use an old version for that I can use WinUAE in my Win98.
Amiga 500 with ROMs 1.3-2.05 and M-Tec AT 500 with hard disk and 4MB Ram.
WinUAE + Original OS 3.5&3.9
Sam440ep 800 MHZ + OS 4.1 F.E.
Sam460ex 1 GHz + OS 4.1 + Update 6. K.O.
MacMini 1.5 GHz + MorphOS 3.9
PowerBook G4 1.65 + MorphOS 3.9

I wonder if it works any better under WINE than the last version? :)

What i know is that Tony disabled the MMU table caching. Which should make winuae work under netbsd & Debian 68k Sarge (and mmu a lot slower). Dunno if it's working with wine though. If not, report back to Tony.

Slightly confusing there... you mean it is now possible to run NetBSD/m68k and Linux/m68k on WinUAE, right? Who would want to run Debian Sarge anyways? :)

The only real issues I've had with WinUAE under WINE have been in relation to the actual user interface. Occasionally it seems to miss keypresses and opening the GUI by pressing F12 is an absolute no-no, you'll never close it again as the keypress is not consumed and it just keeps popping up until you kill the process :)

Opening the GUI from the systray (which is mapped to the notification area in gnome) is fine, however.

Performance wise, it was certainly quicker than native E-UAE.

Well , the news item says: "[/SIZE]- 68040 MMU emulation compatibility improved, Linux and NetBSD confirmed working." So yes, netbsd & linux should work on winuae.

@Karlos
The solution for your problem could have been this: http://eabmobile.abime.net/showthread.php?p=661430#post661430
But with this update, the keyboard handling is improved, so your have to try it out for yourself and see if it works.

Hey, thanks :)

I didn't know about the -rawkeyboard option. Can try that right now with the older version.
