-HLSL changes [ImJezze]
* Unified HLSL render pipline for raster and vector graphics
* simplified draw call of render pass functions
* reduced number of used render targets from 7 to 4 (2 native and 2
* made render pass functions (nearly) independent from each other
* unified render pipeline for raster and vector graphics, which means
that all effects are now also available for vector graphics
(except scan-lines)
* removed/replaced simple.fx by primary.fx
* removed CU_PHOSPHOR_IGNORE uniform, which was only used in phosphor
pass function and is now directly set
* added CU_TARGET_DIMS uniform based on the current render target
* added CU_QUAD_DIMS uniform based on the current full screen polygon
* removed pre-scale knowledge from shaders
* fixed DX9 related half pixel offset in most shaders
* reduced shadow mask color bleeding

lower bloom levels
* fixed position of reflection effect when screen is rotated or
* fixed roundness and size of rounded corners in any aspect ratio
* added distortion pass, which is applied after the bloom pass and
moved curvature, vignetting, rounded corners and reflection effect
to this pass
* fixed bloom stair-step artifacts when screen is curved
* added smooth border effect and option, its amount is limited by the
amount of rounded corners
* added bloom overdrive effect and options, this effect allows to
overdrive pure colors like red, green and blue to become more
* merged vector and raster bloom options, use vector.ini or
raster.ini to distinguish
* added raster.ini and lcd.ini to parse_standard_inis()
* added bounds() and screen_bounds() getter to layout_view
* added current_view() getter to render_target
* many other small changes and refactoring
* fixed vector intensity
* fixed vector flicker
* replace beam width by beam width min. and beam width max. width, this
makes it possible to create a linear dynamic beam width by the amount
of intensity of the beam
* added beam intensity weight, this adds an exponential factor to the
dynamic beam width (values greater than 0 will push larger intensities
more than smaller intensities)
* fixed ratio of "vector points" (zero-length lines)

-psxcd: Declaring ROM images for the CDROM controller MCU. [Felipe Sanches]

-Apollo changes: [Hans Ostermeyer]
