After a 4 years hiatus, it is finally time for some news about ePSXe's development.
ePSXe 1.8.0 is almost finished and is currently in testing phase. If all goes well we expect to release it in a few weeks. This version will include compressed iso support (PBP), SBI support (such as used by redump.org), updates for multitap, disc change and spu and of course a lot of compatibility related fixes.
We were thinking of different ways to get funds for the development of ePSXe and finally decided to develop an Android port. If you want to support the ePSXe development please buy the Android port in the Google Play Market. It contains the ePSXe core, the internal SPU plugin, a new experimental internal soft GPU plugin and a new 2 players mode for tablets.
We would like to give our thanks to Gladiator, from www.psxdatacenter.com, for the thousands of tests he has done in the last 4 years. Without his help creating a version with high compatibility would have been almost impossible. Many thanks to you and your brother . We would also want to give our thanks to Shalma who worked on ePSXe Shark, several plugins and plugins "repairs series". He did a wonderful job, some would even consider it "magic", finding then fixing numerous bugs and deserves our most sincere thanks and admiration.
Finally we want to thank you the ePSXe users for supporting our 12 years old child "ePSXe"
We have created a twitter account "epsxeteam", where we expect your impressions about the emulator. Please don't use this account to request support and instead use ngemu.com forums.

WTF?! OMG OMG OMG OMG! I just wet ma'self.
This just made my day. Whooray!
Seems like they're incorporating Shalma's work too.
The best psx emulator keeps getting better.
My first thought is that the android version was a fake. Finally I know it is legit. 2 player mode on Tablet....wow! It beat all psx emu for android so far. Can't wait 1.80 for PC release.
Seem like epsxe set to release every 4 years :P
Wow. This is a nice surprise. The android port is awesome!!
Uh....that was certainly unexpected, but welcome nonetheless. Holy crap on a cracker!
Wasnt there a 6 year hiatus between 1.6 and 1.7? I still much prefer to use PSX for the simple fact that there is nothing to change to get to fully working and I am fine with the way it looks. With ePSXe it requires that you mess around with plugin settings but none of that is needed with psx so I still use it ove epsxe but seeing a new version of my back up emulator is nice tho.
It's already been four years since 1.7.x!? Wow, time is flying.
Glad to know that it isn't dead.
