Development of higan began on October 14, 2004 as bsnes and the first version was released in May 2005 for Microsoft Windows. Since then, it has been ported to GNU/Linux. Richard Bannister unofficially ported bsnes 068 to OS X, while an official OS X port is currently being developed by byuu. The emulator has always been free software and is currently under GPLv3 licensure. It is still being actively developed.
higan was the first emulator to feature SPC7110 emulation, cycle-accurate SPC 700 emulation, cycle-accurate Super FX emulation, and Super Game Boy emulation. Newer versions of higan can also experimentally emulate the NES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance. An older version of higan, bsnes 091, had an experimental Nintendo DS emulation core called dasShiny, developed by Cydrak, but was removed in higan 092.
A fork of bsnes 082 (the last version with sole SNES support) was developed by LuigiBlood called bsnes-sx2. It adds peripherals such as the XBAND and Super Famicom Box, but mostly aims to correctly emulate certain aspects of the BS-X software - a feat which is not planned for main higan builds, as it goes against byuu's cycle-accurate programming philosophy.

Famous quotes containing the word background:
“I had many problems in my conduct of the office being contrasted with President Kennedys conduct in the office, with my manner of dealing with things and his manner, with my accent and his accent, with my background and his background. He was a great public hero, and anything I did that someone didnt approve of, they would always feel that President Kennedy wouldnt have done that.”
—Lyndon Baines Johnson (19081973)
“Pilate with his question What is truth? is gladly trotted out these days as an advocate of Christ, so as to arouse the suspicion that everything known and knowable is an illusion and to erect the cross upon that gruesome background of the impossibility of knowledge.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“In the true sense ones native land, with its background of tradition, early impressions, reminiscences and other things dear to one, is not enough to make sensitive human beings feel at home.”
—Emma Goldman (18691940)
