New release v0.11 is now available!

The major change in this release is that I reworked the whole adapter so that the second core does not run FreeRTOS anymore. So it's essentially bare metal. That was a lot of work and I will make a separate log about it soon!

The second big change is that I added Kconfig support and in conjunction with the GitHub action CI I can now offer multiple builds! Two types of build are now available: the SD card version as before (now named BlueRetro_universal_sd.bin) and also internal flash (SPIFFS). For each type I also provide the regular universal version with system auto detection. But in addition system hard-coded versions are available. A total of 24 variants are available.

That should be very helpful for people doing DIY version that misses the SD card slot or are hardwired to a specific system. (You don't need to set pin I39 or ground the auto detect pins with the hard-coded build.)
