Release Notes

What's new:
- reworked sound subsystem, improved sync stability;
- new AY8910 emulation with oversampling and best sound quality;
- added ability to change soundcard sample rate (currently through unity.config only, see sampleRate value of HostSound_Mdx in winforms container);
- added ability to change AY frequency, pan (ABC, ACB, BAC, BCA, CAB, CBA, MONO) and AY DAC preset (currently there is no UI to configure it, so you can change it directly in the machine config file - ZXMAK2.VMZ);
- fixed interrupt length for Spectrum 48 late ULA;
- added beeper DAC/MIC emulation (used for original ZX48/128);
- fixed crackling sound on startup;
- fixed error with Load/Save data block from debugger;
- fixed close hang for XNA4 host;
- fixed some port masks for ATM & Scorpion configs;
- fixed UI lags (debugger);
- improved sound buffering, all locks were removed (now it works with concurrent algorithm), so it will never slow down UI thread;

The most important change in this release is a sound quality improvement which is really impressive :) Also emulator run faster and smoother.
