N64 emulator Project64 gets its 3.0 update for its 20th anniversary

Project64, the most popular (and free) emulator of the Nintendo 64 recently turned 20 years old. To celebrate this event, developers have decided to update the build from Version 2.3.2 to Version 3.0.0.

According to PCGamesN, here is what's new:

"Project64 3.0 adds GLideN64 support, and the option to make it your default plugin, as well as new audio and input plugins, The cheat system has been revamped, saves now conveniently live in their own director, there are fixes for issues with Donkey Kong 64 and Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine."

Here is what developer zilmar has to say about the recent changes:

"With the release of 3.0, I plan to work on a dual strategy. I have a lot of huge changes I want to make to the code base of project64. This will be done on a new branch and will be slowly working towards a 4.0 version. I will be also maintaining a 3.x branch and doing bug fixes and small features to it and making sure this stays up to date and is good for users to be able to always use."
