ixbar3000 v0.24 released!

This update brings two very awesome features. First is called canvas. It’s tk’s powerhouse of displaying 2d. In practice this means that I can finally start to deprecate the old textbox-hack once done two known bugs will be gone too. The second one is nothing less than multiplayer! Yup, it’s here and it’s crossplatform. You’ll need mednafen as your emulator.
