0.9.6 press release

This release focuses on emulation bugfixes and features of interest to homebrew developers. Most users will find that the compatibility is increased substantially.

Some save files may be invalidated due to use of broken crc logic. Back up your DSV files before using this version of the emulator or else the game might wipe it.

Users of gtk, cli and gtk-glade frontends please note that now we have a common directory in ~/.config/desmume for config file, saves and savestates. The old .desmume.ini will be moved automatically with the name config but you have to move your saves manually.

Savestates from 0.9.5 loaded in 0.9.6 may suffer from silenced audio or flipped screens. Try playing the game for a while to see if it fixes, but you may have to reset the game and load from a save file.
