this takes effect for the first time in Dapplegrey 5 later this year.
When adding games, the "Drive C:" Folder selection dialog now starts with the last selected folder by default, instead of the documents folder used before.
Also changed in the Add Games window, the default setting of browsing to a game by folder or by DOS application is now set to folder.

Version 4.0 | Release Date: 2013-10-21 | Download

Press Cmd-S to save a copy of your games list or Cmd-Option-O to restore it. On developer's Macintosh, sometimes the user's games list is empty on Dapplegrey's start, even if a number of entries existed before. When a copy of the games list exists, Dapplegrey tries to restore it automatically, when this happens again.
If you're running DOSBox 0.70 or a newer version, set up Windows 3.1 to run from inside Dapplegrey, by pressing the keyboard shortcut Cmd-Option-3. From there, run the Windows 3.1 Installation or run Windows itself, after it has been installed. This operates independent of the existing games listing, so if you want to install games from within Windows 3.1, run Windows 3.1 first from within this Dapplegrey window.
From games listing view, the only listing supporting booting up Windows 3.1 directly to run a game is the "Games Included" listing. Dapplegrey 4.0 adds some freeware and shareware Windows 3.1 games to this listing. Add a drive C: containing a Windows 3.1 installation to them and run the games by double-clicking the entry in the list.
New Toolbar item graphics sized wi(d)th 32×32 pixels to prepare Dapplegrey for import into Xojo for next major version, instead of RealStudio 2011r3 used for Dapplegrey 4 yet.
Memory Size and Loadfix sheet window now mention current selected game entry name, instead of "DOSBox" in common.
The option to specify a base Drive C: path has been moved from Preferences window to separate window, accessible in the File menu. To be extended in the future.
Last major version to support Mac OS X 10.4 PowerPC based machines.

Version 3.6 | Release Date: 2013-08-11 | Download

The (modified) DOSBox version included in the DOSBoxWrapper application, which can be found at www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=36293 will be recognized as DOSBox source now.

Some further optimizations has been done: When running plain DOSBox or game not listed in Dapplegrey, if machinetype is set to standard type (machine=svga_s3), it will not be sent to DOSBox. This will short the Terminal command line a bit, because its length is limited.

Version 3.5.1 | Release Date: 2013-08-04 | Download

DOSBox SVN versions created by Dominus and Emendelson will be recognized correctly, if choosen though the Preferences Dialog of Dapplegrey.

Version 3.5 | Release Date: 2013-06-09 | Download

The Drives section allows to mount multiple CD-ROM images per drive letter again. This is now managed by using a listbox with checkboxes in the list of files, where you just tick the images you want to get mounted in DOSBox. DOSBox supports up to 5 CD images per drive-letter. The re-written Drives window also lists floppy images in a listbox with checkboxes. Remember, multiple floppy images are currently only supported in current SVN versions, not in the plain 0.74 or 0.74-1 version of DOSBox. This is the main feature of release 3.5 of Dapplegrey.
Drag and Drop of images: The mount type (Floppy, CD-ROM, Hard Disk Drive) has been set automatically before. Some disk images may not be recognized correctly as floppy or hard disk drive, so you can select this mount type now manually.
Also when Dragging and Dropping files and folders onto Dapplegrey, the pathes to the files and folders will be shortened to "~/...", if it is located within the User's folder. The Tilde sign "~/" is the usual abbreviation for your users folder, so if you want to use a file stored within, you don't have to enter the full path to the file as "/Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/Yourname/...", just start it with "~/" instead of.
In the Mixer section, the maximum offered loudness amount can be customized now.
When Dapplegrey's main window is minimized, and a Sheet window is attempted to be opened, the main window should be maximized now. This is required to display the Sheet window in request.
Dapplegrey now supports to mount your Finder's Ramdisk in DOSBox, in condition its name contains "Ram" and "Dis" (as abbreviation of "Disk") . If you've set more than one Ramdisk, only one of them will be used. Mounting the Ramdisk is supported in running a plain DOSBox as well as in game profiles. For game profiles, a menu item "Set Finder's Ramdisk" will be available in the 'Drives' toolbar item of Dapplegrey.
When running a plain DOSBox session, you can set a frameskip rate now.
The author of Dapplegrey managed to use Boxer as DOSBox source again. Since Boxer changed its internal behaviour in Version 1.0, Boxer no longer worked well in order to use it as DOSBox source as before. Looked for a way to still use it's recent versions, now the author of Dapplegrey detected there was a space char (" ") too much in source code, which prevents it from working. So, if you've also installed Boxer as DOSBox emulator on your system, you can use it as DOSBox source again, but there is a very important limitation, compared to pre-1.0 Boxer versions: Your Dapplegrey settings will not be send to Boxer, because Boxer doesn't eat them, and there is no chance to get this working.
This is the first time Dapplegrey's supporting SVN properties, introduced after the release of DOSBox 0.74.
