Have there been any changes to paddle emulation (in 5.0.0 pre-release)?

Things have been restructured in the TIA class, so it's possible that something has changed wrt the paddles.  But unless something was mentioned in various pre-release changelogs, then no, nothing was (intentionally) changed.  If there are issues, report them on the Stella Github page.  It's too late in the release schedule to work on it now, but perhaps for 5.1.

The wife noticed a different feel to the paddles. I'll have to check the settings on her rig and see if they're the same as mine.

Stella 5 has a completely rewritten TIA core, including the paddle readout circuitry. Stella 5 simulates the readout circuitry accurately, while Stella 4 contains a linear approximation, so there is indeed a difference between Stella 4 and Stella 5 :)

I should have referred you to DirtyHairy directly, instead of blindly trying to answer this question myself.

 

We should probably add this to the changelog too.

Does original hardware make a buzzing sound when starting Coleco's Zaxxon? Both Stella and Z26 do.

Confirmed to happen on a Woody with an original cart and via Harmony Encore.
