Presenting the Google Summer of Code 2009 “work complete” snapshot!
The Google Summer of Code is a program sponsored by Google getting
talented students and open source projects together. You can find out
more about the Google Summer of Code program at
This year three students spent their summer adding functionality to SDL 1.3:
- Edgar “bobbens” Simo created a suite of automated tests to help find
bugs and verify new ports of SDL.
- Martin Lowinski ported SDL to Linux on the PS3, adding SPE support
for accelerated movie playback.
- Jiang Jiang added IME support for asian language input on Mac OS X.
I want to thank all of these students for the excellent work they contributed!
Please feel free to download the snapshot and check out their work!
