Version 5.21 is out at this writing.
The dev team for this is very active and constantly working to fix bugs and upgrade features.
It supports a relatively large variety of hardware and emulation for retro gaming. its fast and efficient.
Compared to similar products, Batocera sometimes needs some Linux knowledge to troubleshoot.

[v5.20] Pretty good emulation distro, running perfectly up to playstation 2/3ds emulation with an old i5 750 and a ati hd4650. Some emulationstation themes work on it as well.
