Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce a new version of ZX-Diagnostics, v0.37.

The changelog for this release is as follows. Have fun!

New features:

- Support for the CSS Electronics 128K ROM board (https://www.sellmyretro.com/offer/details/30496)
- Diagnostics integrity check on startup. Catches corrupt diagnostics images,
as well as addressing errors that would prevent diagnostics from running correctly.
- Z80 Type detection, available in ULA test, identifies whether CPU is an NMOS or CMOS variant.
- Detection of SLAM48+/SLAM128+ hardware in ULA Test (hold down U on startup)
- Added TK90X/TK95 ASIC detection to ULA test (credit - André Luiz Loureiro Varajão)
- Linux Shell scripts (build.sh etc.) supplied to support building zx-diagnostics on Linux

Deprecated features:

None

Enhancements:
