Release id #164858 : VICE 3.2

So, finally, we pushed it out. The GTK3 port isn't 100% done yet, but usable enough for testing it. It has a couple known issues and open ends - which are listed here: http://vice-emu.pokefinder.org/index.php/Todo#GTK3_UI - grab experimental binaries here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/vice-emu/files/experimental%20..

Due to the massive amount of features, we need help with testing the damn thing, especially on platforms other than linux.

It would also be great if those who offered to set up nightly builds for OSX would step up and do it :)

Great work!

One small "issue" (SDL1 build on Linux): when switching to Debug border mode, the window changes size from 719x544 to 823x544. It would be preferrable that the window size be expanded in both dimensions so as to keep the same smooth scaling factor used in normal border mode. In older VICE versions the window did not change size at all, so it is kind of an improvement, just wondering why it's just partially expanded?

the main reason is likely: noone tests with SDL1 on linuks :)

Why do 8580 low basses fart that much without digiboost? Unless I don't play $d418 samples, I use 8580+digiboost setting - otherwise it's painful to listen to anything with lows :( I don't understand what happens to sound emulation with each new release - it plainly sucks and has nothing to do with real SID distortion. Sorry, guys - I rarely switch into Ian Coog's school of critique but this is quite frustrating :D

This. It's ridiculously broken.

the one ridiculous thing with those reSID bugs is... that a bunch of people prefer whining (a lot) over doing anything that might help to fix them. guess what will happen.

I'm not able to help unless I know thoroughly your methodology and points of reference in emulating specific parameters of SID ;)

At least it would help if you specify a list of tunes where the problem is clearly audible. The more tunes the better so the problem can be identified more easily.

indeed. for example it would help a lot to have a bunch of standalone test tunes that show the problem. or you could even look through the resid updates and tell what revision introduced the problem: https://sourceforge.net/projects/vice-emu/files/old-versions/

See this post WANTED: older (Windows) VICE builds for details on ReSID commits that actually changed things in the SID emulation.

Some of the WinVICE builds in the dir groapaz mentioned will not be the exact revision due to trunk breakage. So some revisions in the old-versions dir may be a few commits ahead, or I backported some code to get as close to the ReSID commit revision as possible. I didn't touch the ReSID code however.
