PySDL2 0.7.0 released

PySDL2 0.7.0 has been released.

PySDL2 is a wrapper around the SDL2 library and as such similar to the
discontinued PySDL project. In contrast to PySDL, it has no licensing
restrictions, nor does it rely on C code, but uses ctypes instead.

Version 0.7.0 is a bugfix release, which provides the following changes

  • updated sdl2 to include the latest changes of SDL2 (release 2.0.1)
  • fixed a bug in sdl2.ext.FontManager.render(), which did not apply the
    text color correctly
  • improved the error messages on failing DLL imports
  • the sdl2.ext.TextureSpriteRenderer.render() and
    sdl2.ext.SoftwareSpriteRenderer.render() methods do not misinterpret x
    and y aguments anymore, if set to 0
  • sdl2.ext.load_image() raises a proper UnsupportedError, if neither
    SDL_image nor PIL are usable
