Version 1.0 of libx86 has been released. This release fixes the mapping 
of the ROM to be executable, avoiding failures on Linux 2.6.25 and 
higher. It also adds miscellaneous compatibility fixes to the x86emu 
code, including the ability to read high addresses. At this stage, it 
may be desirable to use the x86emu code even on 32-bit systems. The next 
release of libx86 will break compatibility by removing the mmap code. 
Client applications will need to do this themselves. The SONAME will be 
bumped to match.

libx86 can be downloaded from
