Progress Report: January 2019

Welcome to the January 2019 progress report! This month saw significant improvements to the core components of RPCS3 such as the introduction of multithreaded cache compilation for the SPU LLVM recompiler, reimplementation of the graphics framebuffer management, overhaul of the audio backend and much more.
