Date: Sat, 24 Apr 2004 15:13:32 +0300 From: "Mike Gorchak" Subject: SDL updates for the QNX6 1. Updated the README.QNX 2. Updated libtool scripts, which are shipped with SDL for QNX6 support. 3. Added some code to support the new QNX 6.3.0, which is in beta now. 4. Added code to detect the hw features, which driver supports. 5. Added hw alpha blits code. 6. Fixed bug when application switches to fullscreen more the 2 times. (afte\ r that window becames always stay on top). 7. Updated a bit README for the tests. 8. Added information about acceleration show in the testalpha.c test. 9. Added small fixes to the testoverlay2.c test. 10. Added alpha and cc+alpha blits benchmarks to the testvidinfo.c test.

Wish list for the 1.3 development branch:

 * Use /etc/fb.modes, if available, like GGI does
 * Add mousewheel events (new unified event architecture?)
 * DirectInput joystick support needs to be implemented
 * Be able to enumerate and select available audio and video drivers
 * Fullscreen video mode support for MacOS X
 * Explicit vertical retrace wait (maybe separate from SDL_Flip?)
 * Shaped windows, windows without borders
 * Multiple windows, multiple display support
 * SDL_INIT_EVENTTHREAD on Windows and MacOS?
 * Add a timestamp to events
 * Use RDTSC for timer resolution on x86 hardware
 * Add audio input API
 * Add hardware accelerated scaled blit
 * Add hardware accelerated alpha blits
 * Redesign blitting architecture to allow blit plugins

In the jump from 1.2 to 1.3, we should change the SDL_Rect members to
int and evaluate all the rest of the datatypes.  This is the only place
we should do it though, since the 1.2 series should not break binary
compatibility in this way.

 * PCM and CDROM volume control (deprecated, but possible)
