TinyCurses v0.9 released!
« on: April 18, 2009, 12:18:34 PM »
I've been working on a rather strange curses-like library called TinyCurses. Today, I released the first source code version. Since it's the first version, it isn't very tested and is likely to be a bit buggy. Also, alpha blending is not operational yet, but will be in a future version. You can find out more information about TinyCurses on it's website, here:
http://code.google.com/p/tinycurses/
TinyCurses is notable for it's support of Unicode and 32-Bit RGB color. It uses SDL and SDL_ttf.

Here's a screenshot:

Oooh, Unicode. Hit me with that multi-byte wide-character stuff!  ;D

Seriously that's definitely one of the things I need to be supporting.

So I can't figure this out from the site itself -- by 'on multiple platforms'  does this mean it's fully compatible with Windows?

Looks cool!

If it uses SDL it can probably be run on Windows (with SDL installed).

It uses SDL, so it should be able to compile for windows. But all compilers are different, and I haven't yet tested it under MSVC or Mingw. But I will do so soon. This is just the very first release after all :)
