PCSX2 0.9.6 released!!

Bositman said:
After nearly 16 months, here comes a new Pcsx2 version. Pcsx2 0.9.6

These months were somewhat problematic for pcsx2, due to an initial slowdown of the development process. Then, last fall, the Playground branch was created, and development picked up again. Finally, with the merge of Pcsx2 and Pcsx2 playground, the emulator's development returned once again as it was before, and now we can give you a release which should (we hope!) leave you happy.

We would like to thank everyone that was still waiting for a release, and coming to our forums. We would also like to thank everyone to encouraged and otherwise supported us. This release is especially for you.

Important note: you NEED to update directx or you won't be able to use the emulator! You can do it with either of the links below:
THIS <-- DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer
or THIS <-- DirectX End-User Runtimes

What's new in 0.9.6?

- Huge rewrite, mainly from the new members of the Playground branch! Too many speedups, optimizations and other fixes to write here! Many famous games will now work.
- Dropped VM build replaced by the all new Vtlb, meaning no more 'Cannot allocate memory' errors at start up, more accurate emulation, slightly lower speeds but with many optimizations to come
- Full memcard support, working in all games
- Improved Frameskip/VU-skip
- Special Game Fixes Section
- Advanced Options Section for custom tweaking VU/FPU behavior.
- Rewritten Multithreaded GS (MTGS) mode, with as much as 15% speedup for HT machines (only 3-5% for Dual Core), and fixes many instabilities.
- Improved VU/FPU Flags and Clamping support (helps fix odd behaviors and SPS in some games)
- Improved EE/IOP synchronization (fixes many freeze-ups and vmhacks).
- Improved CDVD support.

The older versions will NOT be supported in our forums,so 0.9.4,0.9.5 and playground are not supported anymore

Oh now this is a good way to start the day.

Just threw it on my gaming rig, so far so good.

I recommend a clean install, as installing over .9.4 (and it's various incarnations) kept giving me weird results. A clean install worked perfectly.

Excellent news, I go to sleep for the night and when I wake up I am greeted with this great news.

Before Pcsx2 went official 0.9.6 I was testing out svn builds and I have to say, there's a massive improvement over the last official build. :D

So with the MTGS update, will it essentially speed up i7 based computers by 20%?
