MESSUI is an integrated front-end of MAME, which itself emulates thousands of arcade machines, gambling machines, pinball machines, computers and consoles. Each emulation instance is accompanied by a windows-style menubar which is not normally part of MAME. This menubar is known as 'NEWUI'.
Please note: Beginning at 0.164, MESSUI will contain both arcade and computer/console systems. The command-line MESS with NEWUI will still only contain computer/console systems as before.
The current stable release is 0.178 (2016-09-28).
You can compile your own binary whenever you wish by downloading the source from Github, and then compiling with the official MAME tools, while specifying OSD=messui.
