There's not much in this release. Does it mean A5 is nearing perfection?

A5.0 is nearing perfection. A5.1 has more stuff.

As I mentioned here, I'm having trouble with the fonts addon when statically linking. I have no idea what the problem is, but I'm thinking that I'd like to try using a monolith build to see if that works. And even if it doesn't fix the problem, I think it would be more convenient anyway.

I'm using MinGW 4.6.0, for which the Allegro binaries are not available. So... are there any instructions floating around somewhere for how to build a static / dynamic allegro5 monolith? (I can't downgrade to gcc 4.5, because I need the c++0x features.)

[edit]
The problem in that other thread is now resolved. But I'm still a little interested in how to make a monolith build.

[edit again]
never mind. I've worked it out. It's actually pretty easy. Here are the steps.

  1. Build the allegro libraries, so that you have a directory containing liballegro_acodec-static.a, liballegro_audio-static.a, and so on.

  2. extract the *.obj files from those libraries using the 'ar' command. eg. on windows type

    for %x in (*.a) do ar x %x

  3. recombine those *.obj files into a single library, again with ar.

    ar rcs liballegro-monolith.a *.obj</terminal>

And that's all! liballegro-monolith.a is the monolith library, and all the other *.a and *.obj files can be deleted.

(edit yet again.. what's with the '</terminal>' at the end of my instructions? I can't see any surplus </terminal> in what I've typed)

I have one small issue with this release (also noticed in the previous release). When building on Mac OS X with native image loading disabled I get an error on addons/image/png.c:

/Users/toddcope/Downloads/allegro-5.0.3/addons/image/png.c:18: error: ‘Z_BEST_COMPRESSION’ undeclared here (not in a function)
/Users/toddcope/Downloads/allegro-5.0.3/addons/image/png.c:18: error: ‘Z_BEST_COMPRESSION’ undeclared here (not in a function)

Adding #include <zlib.h> to the top of png.c fixes the issue.

Thanks. We had that fixed in the 4.4 branch.

How do I have to use the

liballegro-5.0.3-monolith-static-mt-debug.a

? because if I link to it, it gives my a lot of errors, and if I link to the system binaries too, it's the same.

Static libraries require also dependencies. Link also:

libdumb-0.9.3-static-mt-debug.a
libFLAC-1.2.1-static-mt-debug.a
libfreetype-2.4.4-static-mt-debug.a
libogg-1.2.1-static-mt-debug.a
libvorbis-1.3.2-static-mt-debug.a
libvorbisfile-1.3.2-static-mt-debug.a
libzlib-1.2.5-static-mt-debug.a

Those are included in packages.
