Presenting the 2.0.2 RELEASE CANDIDATE 1
We plan to release this early next week, so please download and try this
out with your applications.
In addition to many bugs being fixed, here are the major changes since
Added SDL_GL_ResetAttributes() to reset OpenGL attributes to default
Added an API to load a database of game controller mappings from a file:
Added game controller mappings for the PS4 and OUYA controllers
Added SDL_GetDefaultAssertionHandler() and SDL_GetAssertionHandler()
Added SDL_HasAVX() to determine if the CPU has AVX features
Added SDL_vsscanf(), SDL_acos(), and SDL_asin() to the stdlib routines
EGL can now create/manage OpenGL and OpenGL ES 1.x/2.x contexts, and share
them using SDL_GL_SHARE_WITH_CURRENT_CONTEXT
Added a field “clicks” to the mouse button event which records whether
the event is a single click, double click, etc.
The screensaver is now disabled by default, and there is a hint
SDL_HINT_VIDEO_ALLOW_SCREENSAVER that can change that behavior.
Added a hint SDL_HINT_MOUSE_RELATIVE_MODE_WARP to specify whether mouse
relative mode should be emulated using mouse warping.
testgl2 does not need to link with libGL anymore
Added testgles2 test program to demonstrate working with OpenGL ES 2.0
Added controllermap test program to visually map a game controller
Support for OpenGL ES 2.x contexts using either WGL or EGL (natively via
the driver or emulated through ANGLE)
Added a hint SDL_HINT_VIDEO_WIN_D3DCOMPILER to specify which D3D shader
compiler to use for OpenGL ES 2 support through ANGLE
Added a hint SDL_HINT_VIDEO_WINDOW_SHARE_PIXEL_FORMAT that is useful when
creating multiple windows that should share the same OpenGL context.
Added an event SDL_RENDER_TARGETS_RESET that is sent when D3D9 render
targets are reset after the device has been restored.
Mac OS X:
- Added a hint SDL_HINT_MAC_CTRL_CLICK_EMULATE_RIGHT_CLICK to control
whether Ctrl+click should be treated as a right click on Mac OS X. This is
off by default.
Fixed fullscreen and focused behavior when receiving NotifyGrab events
Added experimental Wayland and Mir support, disabled by default
Joystick support (minimum SDK version required to build SDL is now 12,
the required runtime version remains at 10, but on such devices joystick
support won’t be available).
Hotplugging support for joysticks
Added a hint SDL_HINT_ACCEL_AS_JOY to control whether the accelerometer
should be listed as a 3 axis joystick, which it will by default.
