Here is the list of the current changes for 1.04:

- Directory cache. The first time you enter a folder, and MegaSD will build a cache of files, directories and types, so the next accesses to that folder are instant load. The folder contents will be rescanned when a new file or directory is added. To force a rescan, enter the folder by pressing START instead of A.
- Create save ram backups, so if a write fails or the data is corrupted, the backup will be loaded next boot.
- Implement wondermega audio effects (Left only, Right only, Voice cancel). Only available when using the wondermega/x'eye bios cd player.
- Fix NHL98 and other EA '98 megadrive games SRAM not working due to missing backup RAM header.
- Fix Compton's encyclopedia hanging at the end of some videos.
- Add MD+ CD audio fade commands.
- Allow specification of loop points in cue files.
- Add a mapper to support Game no kandume.
- Support 4MB SMS Roms.
- Double the size of available space for the CD RAM Cartridge. Note that if you already have files stored in your CD RAM, the space won't be increased. You must either delete your SRM file entirely from the BUP folder, or just delete all files from your CD RAM Cart in the bios memory manager. When there are no files, the space will be automatically doubled.
- Add a MD+ command to support arbitrary specificacion of sector start, end and loop points to play CD Audio, instead of specifying a track.
- Improve SMS FM to fix sound problems in Phantasy Star
- Fix Megaracd CD game missing sounds.

I feel like almost 3 months is long enough.
