1 Feb 2009: MeBoy 2.2 released! The major focus for this update was graphics performance - not all games are affected, but some see very significant speedup. (Strikingly, on my Sony Ericsson K810, Zelda DX jumped from 36 to 50 fps in standard graphics mode, and from 11 to 36 fps in advanced graphics mode. Other games, and my Nokia 6120 Classic, saw smaller improvements.) A few bugs got fixed too, improving game compatibility (see the version history for the gory details).
