Submission + - DOSBox v0.73, and an Interview With the Developers

An anonymous reader writes: The DOSBox team has released a new version (0.73) of the emulator at the end of the last month. Besides the tons of tweaks and fixes, it sports a new, faster OPL2 and OPL3 core (for Sound Blaster emulation), and it emulates more video modes (more acurate EGA and VGA modes, 3 SVGA chipsets instead of one). Other notable features include a new ARM dynamic recompiler and Coremidi support on Mac OS X. > Downloads are this way.

Sir Arthur's Den has an interview of Peter Veenstra a.k.a. Qbix, one of the DOSBox autors, commenting the release.

Submission + - Microsoft to unveil Morro: A Free Antivirus (reuters.com)

N!NJA writes: A Microsoft spokesman said on Wednesday that the world's biggest software maker is testing an early version of the product with its own employees. Microsoft would "soon" make a trial version, or product beta, available via its website, he added, but declined to provide a specific date. [...] Microsoft has said that Morro will offer basic features for fighting a wide range of viruses, which would likely make it comparable to low-end consumer products from Symantec and McAfee that cost about $40 per year. Their top-selling products are security suites that come with features including encryption, firewalls, password protection, parental controls and data backup.
