Sorry for the long wait for this build! This was due to all the work that was needed to make CMake the official build system for the project. This should make it easier for other people to contribute the project. The CMake build configuration was used to generate this build and hopefully, we'll be able to deliver builds at a much faster pace from now on. In any case, here's the list of new stuff in this build:

- Compatibility fixes (ie.: Beatmania IIDX, Shin Megami Tensei, Silent Hill 2, Crash Twinsanity now boot (not necessarily playable though)).
- Add screen shot feature on Windows, macOS and Linux.
- Minor performance improvements.
