- Everything from MAME 0.97 (http://x.mame.net/changes-mame.html) and
MESS 0.97 (http://x.mame.net/changes-mess.html).
- When the emulation is unpaused, the keyboard state is cleared.
prevents keypresses from bleeding over from the user interface.
- The SDL driver now uses the correct green mask for RGB 565. This
fixes a problem with SDL on DirectFB being unable to find a valid
video mode. (Uli H.)
- The SDL driver now locks the video surface before retrieving the
pointer to its memory. This fixes a crash with SDL on DirectFB.
- Fixed a few spots in the code for 4.3 BSD, e.g., OpenStep on NeXT.
- Fixed bugs in the Xv driver and the 6-tap effect that affected
big-endian architectures. (Hans de Goede)

For some strange reason I've always preferred plain 3.1 to 3.11.

Right around then was when DESQview came out. And THAT was the bee's
knees, indeed. (Followed by DV/X, of course.)
The best GUI frontend for DOS was Geoworks, though. Geowrite was
fantastic. Geos on the C64 was nice, too, but it just didn't have the
speed and snap of Geoworks on a 286. No surprise there, of course.
