No, the latest Jabo plugin is 1.6.1. Available here: http://www.jabosoft.com/downloads/502
More details here: http://www.jabosoft.com/articles/114

Jabo 1.6 plugins have a bug with the rdb, as it writes settings to the rdb in the emulator folder. You need to copy the rdb from Project64\Config\Project64.rdb, to Project64\Project64.rdb. Otherwise you'll get a newly created rdb that will become corrupted. Or, add a new line to a blank text file and name it Project64.rdb and put it in Project64 folder. It must have at least one line with a comment or blank line at the start of the file.

Jabo is faster, but Glide64 is better for certain games. The best gfx is GLideN64, the successor to Glide64, if your hardware can run it.

that plugin is pretty old and it goes with jabo's last release of pj64,pj64 1.6.1 back in 2011. he said he would not work on pj64 any more and the plugins you told me are actually for pj64 1.6.1. The jabo's graphic plugin included in pj64 2.3.2 202 is 1.7.0.57-ver5 which obviously is newer than that 1.6.1 plugin. I wonder if Jabo really has stopped working on pj64 and the current pj64 team just does some improvement on what's left by jabo

Jabo's 1.6.1 is newer than 1.7.0.57-ver5.

Jabo ported all the fixes from 1.7 and added a few more to the 1.6 version after leaving the PJ64 team. Then released 1.6.1.

The 1.6 and 1.7 plugins use a different spec. 1.7 uses the Project64.cfg, 1.6.1 writes directly to the RDB in the emulator folder instead.

Jabo never released his source code, so no work can ever be done to fix any problems it has. It will be dropped from PJ64 when Glide64 is fixed up a bit.

the jabo plugin you provide in the link above was released in september 2011. when was jabo 1.7.0.57-ver5 released? if that 2011 jabo plugin was newer, why was it not included in pj 2.3.2-202? did jabo make 2 types of graphic plugins?
