This is the first official 0.53 boot screen, it's no mock-up from me :). The release of the 0.53 Beta CD-i Emulator is coming close and we actually don't know a lot of details as with the extensive release of the 0.52 version. Cdifan: "Today I resumed working on the input record/playback code to get it towards its final specification for this beta. [It is needed] to get the feature usable for extensive compatibility testing, which is a goal of this beta: it should be possible to exchange input recordings that reproduce crashes or rendering bugs, even when they require some time to reproduce. Emulator state snapshots would make this even better, but that is too much work for now.
The cdifile dumping code will not be released with this beta, there's too much unfinished code in there. I will attempt to finish this tomorrow, but it's just barely achievable..."
We'll eagerly following all the news available around the new CD-i Emulator and report more when it arrives. Read more technical details on his blog here.
