it's 100% inexcusable if he didn't.
last few releases have already caused a nightmare with people claiming MAME broke X because they're using MAMEUI which has a different romset to MAME, and even if they downloaded a complete set for the release some ROMs are missing and things appear broken.
if a MAME version claims to be a specific version, it should be that specific version, not something else.
it's not even difficult to get it right, you grab the source from the download page, add the UI code, compile it, if somebody is too stupid to get that right 3 times in a row even after it's been spelled out on mamedev.org then I literally have no words.
of course, maybe it's fine this time, I certainly hope so, I haven't actually checked, but yeah, people already seem to be indicating otherwise, could be they're using MAMEUI from some other source tho but if that isn't the case somebody has some explaining to do.
