DOSBox LFN with mouse copy/paste support (Announce)

As some of you already know, I have added Long File Name (LFN) support to DOSBox last month. Both the DOSBox shell commands and many native (LFN-aware) DOS programs should now be able to use LFN in DOSBox. However, another feature that is missing in the original versions of DOSBox is the ability to copy and paste text in DOSBox by mouse. So since yesterday I went further to add mouse copy and paste support to DOSBox. You can now use the right mouse button to select, copy and paste text from and to DOSBox (when the mouse is not locked). I can also add further features to DOSBox if there are requests.

Download link for the binary (along with all required DLLs, zipped):

Hi,
I quickly tested it and the copy/paste works nice. Also DJGPP is not crashing now. Thanks.

For the latest build and its source code or patches, you can download them from the DOSBox Patches forum (see my threads with titles "Long File Name support" and "Mouse copy/paste support"):

I have now included a documentation file named README.TXT within the package (http://bit.ly/12jANWF) providing information such as features and settings, in order to be more convenient for users.

I did a quick test of this on a Windows machine. It seems to work. Keyboard copy/pasting also works.

Now just to get it working on Linux. :-)
