I've made it clear many many times in the past that while MAME's architecture is transitioning towards being able to run multiple drivers at the same time it's not there yet. So games like Panorama that require running 3 or even 5 PCBs are necessarily a ways off. (And good luck finding a PC that runs it at a framerate when it is emulated).
Bottom line: MAMEdev does not and can not guarantee a timetable on any dump. If someone told Jeff otherwise, that person needs to be informed of actual facts.
