Future of Retro Virtual Machine
It’s been 4 years since the release of Retro Virtual Machine (RVM) version 2.0, and that’s too long. I’ve been thinking about changing the way the emulator is publicly released so that it doesn’t take so long.
The idea is to release a public version every 6 months, while a beta version will be released every 2 months for Patreon supporters. This way, we hope to be able to offer more frequent updates and significant improvements for users.
The first public release of this new phase will be version 2.1. However, because it is still under development and the debugger is not yet finished, it has had to be suppressed in this version. While it is a shame not to be able to include it yet, the main goal for the next version will be to finish the debugger so that we can offer this tool to users. In the meantime, we recommend that developers continue to use version 2.0.
In addition to working on the debugger, we are also exploring other improvements and new features to include in future versions of RVM. We are committed to continuing to improve and evolve the emulator so that it remains one of the best options available for retro game fans.
