    SIDPLAY 4.0 is a Commodore 64 music player for Mac OS. It emulates the sound
    chip and other internals of the Commodore 64 home computer to play back music
    that was originally written on it.

    This is the biggest version of SIDPLAY yet. Completely rewritten from scratch,
    designed as the ultimate SID music player for the best operating system.

    SIDPLAY 4 boldly goes where no other SID music player has gone before.

    Requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher, runs on PowerPC and Intel-based Macs.
    Support for HardSID and Catweasel cards is not included in this version.

    improvements:

    - Emulation improvements
    - STIL info can now be retrieved for a SID file if it is not played from the
    default HVSC location

    turned on again, playback can continue after song restart
    - Opening SID files via Internet Explorer is now possible. This makes it
    possible to play SID tunes via the online SID search of www.hardsid.com.
