    DOSBox is an x86 DOS emulator for the PC.

    Recently on 30th August 2018, DOSBox 0.74-2 has been released!

    • A maintenance release for DOSBox 0.74, which solves the following problems:
      • Windows: Fix auto/max cycles algorithm on Windows 7, which helps with stuttering audio.
      • Mac OS X: Bring a 64 bit version and improve performance.
      • Linux: Fix the 64bit dynrec cpu core and a lot of compilation problems. Add patches for the WINE Team.

      The game compatibility should be identical to 0.74.
    • We have saved all game fixes for the upcoming 0.75 release, which will enter regression testing soon.
      This release has been created so you can go back to 0.74-2, in case we happen to break your favourite game in 0.75.

    • Hera are some DOS games which can be played from browser:

    Recently on 26th June 2019, DOSBox 0.74-3 has been released!

    • A security release for DOSBox 0.74:
      • Fixed that a very long line inside a bat file would overflow the parsing buffer. (CVE-2019-7165 by Alexandre Bartel)
      • Added a basic permission system so that a program running inside DOSBox can't access the contents of /proc (e.g. /proc/self/mem) when / or /proc were (to be) mounted. (CVE-2019-12594 by Alexandre Bartel)
      • Several other fixes for out of bounds access and buffer overflows.
      • Some fixes to the OpenGL rendering.
    • The game compatibility should be identical to 0.74 and 0.74-2.
      It's recommended to use config -securemode when dealing with untrusted files.

      Ideally, 0.75 should have been released by now, but some bugs took a lot longer than expected.
