Improved QL emulation:

Improved AY Player: now shows waveform volume meter
Improved VU meters with decay effect on AY Player, AY Registers and Waveform
Improved text mode drivers (aalib, stdout, simpletext, curses): text settings are in different submenu, setting to set stdout/simpletext fps
Improved messages windows. You can now have an internal clipboard, press key c to copy to it. Press P on file utils to paste contents to a file

Fixed TBBlue MMU when using segment 0000-3FFFH
Fixed Raster interrupts on ZX-Uno and TBBlue. Horizontal raster position was wrong

Fixed some crashes with speech enabled and opening some menus: AY Registers, AY Player, etc...
Fixed annoying sound on Dandanator rom menu
Fixed bug on Z80 cpu core, iff2 was not being reset to 0 when firing an interrupt, so reading it by using LD A,R and LD A,I affected many demos

Some other minor bugfixes and improvements
