MAME 0.79 released

MAME 0.79 was released 31th January. Of note is the changes to the memory management:

Another big memory change. [Aaron Giles]

The biggest change is the way address maps are declared in the drivers. Rather than having separate read and write address maps, there is now support for a single, merged map. In order to minimize the amount of code churn, there is currently still support for two separate address maps per address space, but they are combined into one internally early on in the memory initialization and setup.
