libtcod 1.5.1 released
« on: August 30, 2012, 12:29:31 PM »

More than 30 months after the 1.5.0, the stable 1.5.1 is finally available for all official platforms :

    Linux 32 bits
    Linux 64 bits
    Windows / Visual Studio 2010
    Windows / Mingw
    Haiku a3

Grab it on the download page.

The main changes since 1.5.0 :

    new generic event API to handle both keyboard and mouse events
    OpenGL and GLSL renderer (they don’t support all the features of the SDL renderer. See this)
    all major versions of python now work (2.5, 2.6.x, 2.7.x, 3.2.x) on linux32, linux64 and windows. Python still doesn’t work on Haiku.
    support for colored tiles (except for the GLSL renderer)
    experimental support for AsciiPaint files import/export
    [update] : I almost forgot, I get +30% frames per seconds on SDL renderer on 1.5.1 compared to 1.5.0 ^^

I’ll try to get a compiled version for the other platforms as soon as possible :

    libtcod-net (C#)

The future :

    I’ll possibly release a 1.5.2 with bugfixes
    1.6.0 main goal will be the port to Android and a refactoring of the system module
