Isn't Stella the only 2600 emulator for the Mac?

It's very fast, I think that PC Atari is the only emulator with a decent
performance on (fast) 486 machines.
Very easy to use (no configuration files needed), runs very well most
banking schemes thought the Tigervision one is missing.
PAL programs support, thought not perfect it's enough for most games.
The integrated monitor/debugger is great for developers.
Too bad the author decided to stop supporting it...
