Date: Fri, 13 Feb 2004 17:03:16 +0100 From: Max Horn Subject: Modifier key fix The internal modifier state can get out of sync with reality. To trigger this, do for example this: 1) Launch an SDL app 2) Alt-click on the desktop (this will hide the SDL app). 3) Bring the SDL app back to the front 4) SDL will still think alt is pressed (and as such will treat left clicks like middle clicks). If you press and release alt, it'll be fine again. The attached patch cures this by rechecking the modifier state whenever we process an event.


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.

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