A friend of mine was talking about the release of SDL3. I’m trying to do a search on it, but nothing is popping up.
Is there a place to find more information about this and does the public have access to it?
Sorry, I might be an idiot but I’m not finding anything on it except a talk thread in October '22
A good amount of info here and on GitHub
With the release of SDL 2.26, development focus is shifting to SDL 3.0.
We have 10 years of wishlist items that have been waiting for a new major version where we can safely break the ABI, and we are finally ready to make that change.
We will still continue to provide bug fixes for SDL 2, but new features and complex changes will be implemented in SDL 3.
Our general plan is:
Change the version number and library name so it will not conflict with SDL2 installations.
Create sdl2-compat, a bin…
main branch on GitHub has the SDL 3 code
Hey, thanks guys. I don’t know why I couldn’t find that easily, haha.
Much appreciated. I bookmarked it all, so if this isn’t a good thread, go ahead and delete it! Sorry!
This was a good question, I’m glad you asked it.
SDL3 is still in progress, we haven’t had an official release of it yet. If you need something
now, SDL2 is still the gold standard. We’re making great improvements for SDL3, and I think everyone will like it when it’s ready, though!
