A new version of DOSBox. Many small fixes for specific games and a little bit more userfriendly

Get it here
I recommend to update as it fixes a lot of non-critical problems.

Awsome, but what is meant by more user-friendly?

Finally I remembered downloading it - though I think I've done well without the newest, because I hardly ever or never had any problems. Btw, I love that Harkonnen advisor pic at your pages! :P

less typing in certain commands and more guessing on dosbox part.

For example no need to specify the image size with certain harddrive images.

being able to use on all oses except windows and os2 the common ~ for your homedirectory.

trying -ioctl by default .

Question: would Conquest of the New World run well with 0.71? The last version I've installed on my computer was 0.63, and it was way too laggy to work...

Yes on my 2.8 GHz. 0.70 optimized speed greatly. And besides in-game cycles changing is much less neccessary on 0.7x compared to 0.6x in my experience, and that's a great improvement.

Some update: I've tryied Z and Conquest of the New World with 0.72, and it works great. It still itche in the animated sequences or videos, but I clearly remember that it also did on my old computer when I played those games. Very playable, satisfactory performance on both.  ;)
