The provided Win32 compiled dll reports in the explorer version 1.2.9
instead of 1.2.8! Nevertheless IMG_Linked_Version() reports the correct
version. Please upload a fixed SDL_image.dll.

BTW the documentation links listed at
http://www.libsdl.org/projects/SDL_image/ still provide outdated
versions. They neither mention IMG_Linked_Version(), nor
IMG_Init()/IMG_Quit().

Are IMG_Init()/IMG_Quit() an API extension? Is it safe to call them
without prior checking the linked version? Is it safe to call them on
any operating system?

Greets,

Ronald

Whoops, I’ve updated the version for the SDL_image.dll, and asked Jon
Atkins to update the docs.

SDL_image.dll has been updated by date, but the file/product version is
still 1,2,9!

BTW SDL_image.dll is included in SDL_image-1.2.8-win32.zip and
SDL_image-devel-1.2.8-VC.zip - both should finally include the fixed dll.

Greets,

Nice, can’t wait for the updated docs. Is the iPhone support under the hood or are there specific commands required for use? Also any special build requirements for the iPhone?

Many thanks

there are no special requirements (besides cocoa and other needed
frameworks)
beware that if you use sdl_image you may meet this bug
