WinFellow is a high-performance Amiga Emulator primarily targeted for Windows. Its distinguished API and core do however allow a fairly easy port to other operating systems.

What’s new in v0.5.8:

New features
• support for RDB hardfiles was implemented; while creating a new hardfile from the WinFellow GUI still creates “plain” hardfiles, a Rigid Disk Block can be created using tools like HD Toolbox
• the default naming scheme for filesystem devices has been changed from DHx: to FSx: to avoid naming conflicts with existing RDB hardfiles
• a 64 bit build is now provided; the NSIS installer will install either the 32 or 64 bit version depending on the operating system that is used

Bug fixes
• improved handling of hardware interrupts and blitter delays; fixes freezes that could occur during installation of Workbench in earlier 0.5.x versions
• fix wrong selection of render function after return from menu when application did not write to bplcon0 every frame; fixes garbled graphics in a Legend cracktro when returning from menu
• replaced alternating patterns for unmapped memory with proper random numbers
• CLR reads before write; fixes loading of Outrun and a fast-mem test in Last Ninja 2
• improve delay caused by logging in screen-mode enumeration (could amount to many seconds with multiple screens)
• running in an environment with very slow graphics framerate, like a VM, could cause a deadlock; set wait time after event reset to avoid race condition
• fix an issue where screenshots would occasionally not be taken in Direct3D graphics mode; this may also have impacted the ability to use Amiga Forever’s clipping editor
• fix an issue where applying a new model preset would leave multiple blitter radio buttons selected
Maintenance updates
• project files were updated to Visual Studio 2019 using the toolset v141_xp
• the February 2010 DirectX SDK dependency was eliminated
• IPF Access API files were updated to the latest version, and support for it was enabled in 64 bit builds
