Core Update:
 
The recent V4 cores support 4 new screenmodes
This means the modes are available for the V4 Standalone, and for the Accelerators: Firebird, Icedrake and Manticore.
 
1280 x 800
1280 x 1024
1440 x 900
1920 x 1080
 
The new Apollo OS Release 9.4 also support these modes.
And the new Atari OS (Emutos) also supports these modes already.

Great work as usual, no other team or individual deliver like you do.
It is easy to announce products but releasing them is not, Jobs used to say « Real Artists Ship » and that is what you do, thanks for that.

            | 07.00 | Pixelformat | $00                                  |
            |      |              $01 = 8bit CHUNKY (indexed)          |
            |      |              $02 = 16bit R5G6B5                  |
            |      |              $03 = 15bit 1R5G5B5                  |
            |      |              $04 = 24bit R8G8B8                  |
            |      |              $05 = 32bit A8R8G8B8                |
            |      |              $06 = YUV VIDEO                      |
            |      |              $07 =                                |
            |      |              $08 = PLANAR 1BIT ATARI              |
            |      |              $09 = PLANAR 2BIT ATARI              |
            |      |              $0A = PLANAR 4BIT ATARI              |
            |      |              $0B = PLANAR 8BIT ATARI  FALCON      |

  All screenmodes run on 50/60Hz except FULLHD this runs on 24Hz (Blueray cinema mode)
