The Jolly Good Reference Frontend, licensed under the BSD 3-Clause "New" or "Revised" license, and the reference implementation of The Jolly Good API, licensed under the zlib License, are Free and Open-Source Software. Some emulators are not Free Software due to non-commercial clauses, but are compatible with these licenses.
In most jurisdictions, you are legally permitted to format shift the games you own to be played using emulators. There is also a wealth of free homebrew available.
The software and all components are considered stable unless otherwise noted.
Please do not report issues to upstream emulator developers, unless they are also in the upstream build.
