Following the release of RetroArch v1.7.1 and then the recent RetroArch 1.7.1 PS3 Extended Version (from @Ezio / @Zar). The official team has now dropped version 1.7.2 for all platforms and that includes the ports for the PlayStation 3, PS Vita (PSTV) & PSP. While version 1.7.2 is packed with alot of new changes that applies to all builds there is one feature that is quite interesting with the "Runhead Latency Reduction" feature which the devs say gives better latency then the real hardware, the PS3 is a port that supports this feature and is used as an example within the release notes. You can checkout all these new features and additional details in the release notes provided

Update (April 16) for DEX user's >>> REBUG 4.82.2 (see update below)
We seen the release of 4.82 REBUG LITE (A CEX CFW) released but without the emergence of a 4.82 DEX Firmware in the public hands, we had to wait for a REBUG REX (a hybrid of CEX/DEX) release on 4.82. The wait is now over as the team has obtained a 4.82 DEX PUP and have the CFW ready to go. REBUG REX (w/ COBRA v7.55) is ready to take the plunge into 4.82. Also IRISMAN / webMAN MOD / ManaGunZ by developer Aldostools/Zar to add support for this new release.

Following all the changes that v1.32 introduced to the popular ps3 homebrew ManaGunZ, the developer behind the project @Zar is back with a new release with version 1.33, there are several new additions in this build one of the main additions is the added 4.82 DEX Support following the release of 4.82 REBUG REX, The complete changelog for version of ManaGunZ 1.33 can be seen below
Now Supports 4.84 HFW!

PS3Xploit Team has unveiled the latest progression in the form of an experimental Tool (Debug Settings Installer + Debug/XMB Swappers) for PS3Xploit v3 HAN user's (tools compatible with CFW also), with the release of REBUG REX that means a 4.82 DEX Firmware is out in the wild and that means with 4.82 DEX files, PS3 HAN user's will not have some added features and was one of the reasons why developer HABIB was suggesting user's stay on 4.81 for use of these DEX features as the status was unknown if a public 4.82 DEX would emerge, but with REBUG REX CFW release, the various files for swapping can be done, but devs will lend more details about that throughout this thread.
While there is already some work-in-progress for a PS4 Emulator, there is still a lot of to accomplish when speaking about emulating PlayStation 3 Game Titles on your Personal Computer. But even with it's complicated CPU architecture, the Team behind RPCS3 keeps this challenge updated by showcasing their newest achievements about PS3 Emulation with more and more Game Titles compatible via their Emulator. And with their newest Progress Report for March 2018, it is still impressive to see that they can get more and more Game Titles playable by each month.​
The abilities for PS3xploit (v3) HAN continues to progress, this time around a simple XMB Mod that adds a new function into the XMB's "User" Category. As seen in the image included a new entry of "Restart System" has been added and when you select the icon it will restart the PS3 without a Conformation. Making a Restart that much faster and easier from the XMB. A long-time XMB MOD from CFW is now brought to PS3 HAN user's,

HAN Toolbox (The Unofficial Companion for PS3Xploit HAN) has been updated to version 0.4 by project creator's @DeViL303 and @pink1 who also recently updated PKG Linker to version 2.0, which is another great release by the two XMB Modding devs. In this update to the Toolbox support for the recent Ps3Xploit Tool releases are now easily available from withing the XMB Mod. No better way to explain this mod then to see it in action and thanks to the video the devs prepared you can see all the new changes and extra details by watching and seeing for yourself.
While many Developers concentrates for finding the newest and latest exploits for the PS4, PSX-Place's own Developer @esc0rtd3w is still not tired with the PS3, especially not with the capability of changing several files and functions via PS3 HAN. And before you think it's only one new (boring) tool he is showcasing, he published a whole set of five tools, for replacing several.SELF.Files in several directories, such as for the internal PS1/PS2/PSP Emulator or for the internal BD Player and for many more. It is great to see that with all the latest and newest in PS4 Hacking, the PS3 is still a thing, especially when there are Developers like @esc0rtd3w, who still works on them, even on the latest Official System Firmware (OFW).​
The new PKG Linker is here, we both put a lot of time and effort into this project, so we hope you get many hours of happy use out of it. Within a few days of the release @DeViL303 and I (pink1) started working on an update for PKG Linker v1. After seeing all of the server problems in v1 we built v2 around a Modular copy of Uniform Server. The project has been completely rebuilt, with new features including:
