Changes from 5.0.8 to 5.0.9 (February 2013)
===========================================

The main developers this time were: Trent Gamblin, Elias Pschernig,
Peter Wang.

Core:

- Clean up logging subsystem at shutdown (muhkuh).

- Fix a problem with creating a display after Allegro is shut down
then re-initialised on X11.

- Fix use of clobbered return value from setlocale() on X11.

- Fix use of double math functions for float arguments (Nick Trout).

Displays:

- Fix al_set/get_window position on Windows so getting/setting to the
same position continuosly doesn't move the window. (Michael Swiger)

- Add al_set_display_icons (plural). Implemented on X11 and Windows.

- Made al_get_display_mode return the closest thing to a pixel format
possible with the WGL driver (tobing).

- Move WGL context destruction out of the message pump thread and into
the user/main thread.

- Allow command-tab to work in fullscreen window mode on OS X.

Graphics:

- Avoid null pointer dereference when setting a target bitmap after
its video_texture has already been released (D3D).

- Make d3d_lock_region fail immediately if _al_d3d_sync_bitmap
failed, likely because the device was lost.

- Set device_lost flag immediately when d3d_display_thread_proc
finds the device is lost.

- Sync bitmaps before resizing display to prevent changes being lost
after the resize (D3D).

- Revert a faulty FBO rebinding optimisation in al_set_target_bitmap.

- Fix OpenGL extensions being completely ignored on OS X.

- Support stencil buffer on iOS.

Input:

- Partially fix mouse buttons "sticking" on Mac, e.g. holding the
mouse and toggling fullscreen window.

Filesystem:

- Keep absolute path in ALLEGRO_FS_ENTRYs so that later changes to the
working directory do not affect the interpretation of the path.

- Set ALLEGRO_FILEMODE_HIDDEN properly on Unix.

- Make sure stat mode bits are cleared in default implementation of
al_update_fs_entry.

- Support Unicode paths on Windows.

- Change description of al_get_fs_entry_name about not returning absolute
path if created from relative path; no longer true for either the default
or Physfs implementations.

Audio addons:

- Shut down threads properly when when destroying FLAC and modaudio streams.

- Fix PulseAudio driver trying to connect to a non-existent server forever.

Image I/O addon:

- Fixed loading interlaced .png files with libpng.

- Use Allegro built-in loaders in preference to OS X loaders for BMP/TGA/PCX.
The OS X TGA loader doesn't support alpha and this is also more consistent.

- Restored ability of the native OSX image loader to load grayscale pictures.

Native dialog addon:

- Add al_init_native_dialog_addon and al_shutdown_native_dialog_addon.

Build system:

- Rename allegro*-5.0.pc files to allegro*-5.pc. The old names are
deprecated but retained on the 5.0 branch for backwards compatibility.

- Only generate and install pkg-config files for libraries that we build.

- Install iPhone internals headers (Nick Trout).

Examples:

- ex_icon2: New example.

- speed: Use builtin font.

Other:

- Documentation updates.

- A lot of code refactoring.

What is this for? How do you use multiple versions (5.0 vs 5.1) of Allegro side-by-side?

As far as I can tell the main reason was that it wasn't sufficient for that purpose anyway since pkg-config would return just -lallegro regardless of whether you passed allegro-5.0 or allegro-5.1 (and there was no clean way to fix that). As for using them side by side... I believe you install them in different directories and then set the PKG_CONFIG_PATH and invoke pkg-config with --cflags. Never tried that approach though...

Which completely defeats the point of pkg-config.. but whatever. Only developers should care about having 5.0 and 5.1 in the same system.

I've never compiled allegro with this computer, so it may be my setup.

I compiled 5.0.9 using gcc 4.6.3 on Mint Maya, and the cosmic protector demo seems to think that the up key is being pressed. I tried restarting the app, making sure that no keys were pressed, and that did not help.

I've ran many examples, and they seem fine (but none that use the up key). :-/

Is there anything you need from me to help figure this out?

It's not a stray joystick, is it?

...which you're welcome to contribute. ;)

Hey, just wanna give a shout out to all the devs - never say how much I appreciate a fun innovative, cutting edge library like Allegro. Never ceases to amaze me how much fun I can have with this library. If only I had more time to program, and less time I had to spend on school.

Are there any areas of contribution you're looking for? What needs to be done? Is there a TODO list anywhere? I don't know how much I could get done, but maybe I could do something. :P

Which includes drop and motions sensors. da** linux >:(.

Before we release 5.2 it'd be good to have the bug list in good shape, so fixing any of them would be a big help.

So, Where Are The 5.0.9 Pre-Built Binaries? ??? ???

Does this release fix this (https://www.allegro.cc/forums/thread/611833/0) issue? Because I don't see that among the changes...

//Edgar: I know I was supposed to test it myself, and you said I could do it... But I have come to the conclusion that on one hand I believe that I really could do it on the other hand making so would probably stress me to the extent that I would really have to become a sailor.

Jeez man, give it a few days. They'll be out as soon as the packager has time to get them out. You're welcome to build the source code yourself if you're in a big hurry. ;)

I didn't have a joystick attached. I would research and try to fix myself, but I haz no internet juice...

I'm calling ISPs tomorrow, though. Maybe I'll be of some use around here one day... :P

Peter Wang: Thanks. I was wondering if that item is actually "it".

Do these Windows binaries require Vista?

I suppose it depends on the runtime. Starting with MSVC 11.0 (Visual Studio 2012) - you need Vista+.

Building OK with mingw32-make
Building OK with mingw32-make -j (in less than half a minute ^^ ) except that my terminal color switched to red.

I'm testing how it works now.

Good job :-)

But this page shows Windows XP support...

I think the Visual Studio application needs vista to run, not necessarily the executables compiled in it (?) ???
