Window hide startup artifacts, tray icon, repository ppa

Hello, I’d like to bug report that SDL_HideWindow() creates ugly window/graphics artifacts when starting up an SDL application. See the link below for a Python/Kivy code example.

  • Feature request: would it be possible to get SDL windows minimized to TRAY icon of the Linux desktop (gnome/kde/xfce) ? Have a look at the pystray python module.

  • Is it possible for you guys to push SDL version 2.0.9 higher on the updates-list of Debian based systems? (Ubuntu/Linux Mint in particular) as version 2.0.4 seriously seems buggy. Or is there a repository that i can add via “add-apt-repository” for an up-to-date SDL?
