- 0.36RC1: Added clone Defender (White label).

- 0.36b7: Added Testdriver: Defense Command (alternate) and Defender ? (Bootleg).

- 0.34b7: Nicola Salmoria added clone Defense Command (bootleg 1980).

- 0.34b6: David Winter added clone Defense Command (bootleg 1980).

- 0.30: Maurizio Zanello added alternate controls in Defender and Stargate, to control the ship using the standard 8-way directional controls instead of up/down/reverse/thrust. Available only when the -cheat option is specified.

- 0.25: Valerio Verrando fixed the Williams driver to support joystick in Blaster, Defender, Joust, Robotron, Splat and Stargate.

- 0.24: Added Defender (Williams 1980). The joystick controls are strange, but Defender had lots of buttons. Marc LaFontaine provided drivers for Robotron, Splat, Defender, Joust, Stargate, Bubbles, Blaster and Sinistar. Bubbles doesn't start, and Sinistar do weird things at startup. The other games work very well, though. For this version I provide a set of fonts that can be used to avoid jerkiness in williams games.
