ANNOUNCE: ParaGUI 0.7.0

We are still alive and have been hacking our keyboards busily,…

A new ParaGUI milestone is ready: version 0.7.0

This is the first release with a completely reworked API (all classnames
are changed and backwards compatibility has been completely broken).

But,…
Things are much cleaner now.

Changes:
SDL_image support is default now
PG_MaskEdit (a maskable edit widget)
PG_DropDown (dropdown combo box)
PG_MessageBox (a simple message box)
PG_Rect (improved SDL_Rect)
PG_StaticFrame (caches automatically backgrounds)
Improved themeing support.
Lower memory usage.
Speed improvements.

The documentation has been split of the sources and can be downloaded
separately.
All standard widgets are using PG_StaticFrame now. This means that all
widgets of the same size and style share the background image (so, mem
usage can be squeezed dramatically).
A couple of new tutorials are now part of the documentation.

Still missing:
Better documentation (volunteers sill needed)

Many many thanks go to Antonin Hildebrand (aka woid) who successfully
fought the bug and memory leak war. :slight_smile:

Enjoy!

well… that’s a crazy joke :slight_smile: we already started coding for 0.6.x and now
we must rewrite everything :wink:

Enjoy!
