===============================================================================
Release 1.1 for DOS, Linux, and Unix
===============================================================================

The Atari 2600 Video Computer System (VCS), introduced in 1977, was the most
popular home video game system of the early 1980's. Now you can enjoy all of
your favorite Atari 2600 games on your PC thanks to Stella!

Stella is a multi-platform Atari 2600 VCS emulator written in C++. Stella
allows you to play most of the games written for the Atari 2600 including
Supercharger games.

This is the 1.1 release of Stella for DOS, Linux, and Unix. Distributions
for other operating systems will appear as they become available. The three
distributions currently available are:

* Binary distribution for Linux (stella-1.1-linux-x86.tar.gz)

* Binary distribution for DOS (st11.zip)

* Source code distribution for Unix and DOS (stella-1.1-src.tar.gz)

A few 2600 ROM images, BIN files, are included with these distributions.
BEYOND THESE FILES NONE OF THE DISTRIBUTIONS CONTAIN ANY 2600 ROM IMAGES.
PLEASE DON'T WRITE ASKING FOR ROMS BECAUSE THEY ARE COPYRIGHTED! If you
own any of the Atari 2600 Action Packs by Activision you can use the ROM
images from them with Stella.
