higan v0.96 released!

higan (formerly bsnes) is a Nintendo multi-system emulator that began development on 2004-10-14. It currently supports the following systems:

- Famicom
- Super Famicom
- Game Boy
- Game Boy Color
- Game Boy Advance

higan also supports the following subsystems:

- Super Game Boy
- BS-X Satellaview
- Sufami Turbo


This release adds many UI refinements, new features, and GBA emulation improvements.

Im looking for Super Famicom console donations, so that I can include hardware PCB scans and document differences for my SNES preservation efforts. If anyone would be interested in helping, Id be very grateful. More about this here.
Also, Ive attempted to add a WASAPI audio driver for the Windows port, but Im having trouble getting it stable. If there are any WASAPI experts that could lend a hand there, that would also be very helpful!
