==============  RELEASE 0.3.6  ==============

20051008	The bug was not because of faulty ARM documentation after all,
		but it was related to those parts of the code.
		Fixing the RTC (dev_mc146818) to work with CATS.
20051009	Rewriting the R() function; now there are 8192 automatically
		generated smaller functions doing the same thing, but hopefully
		faster. This also fixes some bugs which were triggered when
		trying to compile GXemul inside itself. :-)
		Adding a dummy dev_lpt.
20051010	Small hack to not update virtual translation tables if memory
		accesses are done with the NO_EXCEPTION flag; a time reduction
		of almost a factor 2 for a full NetBSD/cats install. :-)
20051011	Passing -A as the default boot arg for CATS (works fine with
		OpenBSD/cats).

7 Overview
8 --------
9
10 GXemul is an experimental instruction-level machine emulator. Several
11 emulation modes are available. In some modes, processors and surrounding
12 hardware components are emulated well enough to let unmodified operating
13 systems (e.g. NetBSD) run as if they were running on a real machine.
14
15 The processor architecture best emulated by GXemul is MIPS, but other
16 architectures are also partially emulated.

19 Quick start
20 -----------
21
22 To compile, type './configure' and then 'make'. This should work on most
23 Unix-like systems. If not, then please mail me a bug report.
24
25 If you are impatient, and want to try out running a guest operating system
26 inside GXemul, please read this: doc/guestoses.html#netbsdinstall
27
28 If you want to use GXemul for experimenting with code of your own,
29 then I suggest you compile a Hello World program according to the tips
30 listed here: doc/experiments.html#hello
31
32 Please read the rest of the documentation in the doc/ sub-directory for
33 more detailed information on how to use the emulator.

36 Feedback
37 --------
38
39 If you have found GXemul useful in some way, or feel like sending me
40 comments or feedback in general, then mail me at anders(at)gavare.se.
