* Upgrade to SDL 2.0

Comment 1 Tom Carrick 2020-05-09 09:03:57 UTC
Well, this isn't an official DOSBox release, and I don't see a reason to move to a forked project when the original software is still being updated (albeit slowly).

If you want this in FreeBSD I'd suggest you make a new port for it.
Comment 2 Fernando Apesteguía freebsd_committer 2020-05-10 11:07:18 UTC
I agree with MAINTAINER. To avoid confusion, it is better to create another port if we think it is necessary, although I would find more interesting to contribute the changes upstream.

  Add emulators/dosbox-staging - DOS/x86 emulator forked from DOSBox

  I've renamed binary and man page to avoid conflict with emulators/dosbox.
