No BIOS file required to play, PPSSPP is in many ways a "HLE" emulator.

- OpenGL ES 3 detection bug on Xperia devices fixed, graphics work again.
- More accurate audio mixing and emulation
- Software rendering and display list performance improvements
- Workaround for timing issue hanging Crash Tag Team Racing
- Galician language
- Built-in ARM disassembler improvements (dev feature)
- Fix for immersive mode volume key issue on Android Kitkat
- And more minor tweaks and fixes as always.
- Some critical bugfixes (rotation, haptic feedback on Android, etc)
- Several scheduling and audio fixes, fixing black screens in Yu Gi Oh games among other things.
- Screen rotation and immersive mode support on Android
- Large improvements to the software renderer (still not really playable, but looks right more often than not)
- New VPL allocator and bugfixes, fixing Pangya Golf performance problems.
- Some mpeg/video playback fixes, fixing Parappa The Rapper and others. Some issues remain.
- Fix save state bugs causing incompatibility between 32 and 64-bit platforms.
- Symbol map/debugger improvements
- Depth buffer copy, fixing Jeanne D'arc. May cause minor slowdowns though, this will be worked around in the future.
- MsgDialog fixes. Saving fixed in numerous games.
- Initial multitouch support on Windows 8 for on-screen controls.
- Large general speed improvements and assorted bug fixes
- "Software Skinning" option which speeds up many games with animated 3D characters (but may slow down a few, like Monster Hunter games - experiment with turning it off)
- Various fixes around stencil/alpha, reducing glow problems in Wipeout and Gods Eater Burst.
- Timing improvements making more games run at the correct FPS, also fixing some audio issues
- More debugger features
- Option for four-way touch dpad, avoiding diagonal dpad issues
- Better looking and individually resizable touch controls
- Add ability to switch UMD in multi-disc games (works for most)
- Emulate PSP-2000 rather than the 1000 model by default. Not much different in practice.
- Automatic install of games from ZIP files, like demos and many homebrew.

- bezier/spline curve support, fixing LocoRoco and others
- stencil clear emulation, fixing Final Fantasy IV text
- Performance improvements in some games
- Post-processing shaders like FXAA, scanlines, vignette

- Analog controller support for Blackberry.
This is based on coldbird's code: http://code.google.com/p/aemu/ All credit goes to him!
Code is a bit of a mess and it's not fully functional yet, I still need to implement some functions and add a upnp lib(really important for people with routers).
I did test it with some games(emulator <-> real psp with the server running locally) and it's looking good:
- Worms Open Warfare: Ran just fine, I was able to play a whole match without problems
- Monster Hunter Freedom Unite: Runs fine too. Gathering Hall and embarking on quests works
- Dissidia Duodecim 012: Doesn't work. It requires some functions that I haven't implemented yet. Also, it uses a port < 1000 and thats reserved for admin apps on linux, running the emu as sudo "solves" it, but it's far from ideal.
- Pacman World Rally: Works too.
- Now compiles on both Mac OSX and Windows. For more details on how to play and build go to see there http://forums.ppsspp.org/showthread.php?tid=3595&pid=59241#pid59241
- Got it tested windows <-> mac osx <-> psp, it works
- Monster Hunter 3rd HD works too, as well as God Eater Burst.
