Barely beating the one year anniversary of 5.2.5 release, I bring you the 5.2.6 release! Yes!

You can find the source tarballs and MinGW binaries here (dependencies MinGW binaries are here). Nuget packages are available here. Ubuntu and OSX packages aren't ready yet, but will be made soon.

Here's the changelog:

Changes from 5.2.5 to 5.2.6 (February 2020)

The main developers this time were: SiegeLord, Peter Hull, Karthik Kumar Viswanathan, Elias Pschernig, Sebastian Krzyszkowiak, Doug Thompson, PmProg, RmBeer.

Core:

  • Fix timestamps being clamped to ints on touch inputs with X11.


  • Fix al_utf8_width argument type mismatch on platforms where sizeof(int) != 4.


  • Fix building for GNU/Linux without GNU extensions enabled


  • Some refactoring to simplify adding new drivers.

Graphics:

  • Fix for OpenGL version selection and reporting on Windows and X (Edgar Reynaldo).


  • Report OpenGL version in display options on Android, iOS and Raspberry Pi.


  • Fix creation of the bitmap depth buffer for non-square bitmaps (Kevin Wellwood).


  • Fix ALLEGRO_ALPHA_TEST_VALUE not being interpreted correctly.


  • Fix reported bitshifts for ARGB_4444 and RGBA_4444 pixel formats.


  • Fix alpha test with the GLSL version.

Android:

  • Do not build Android examples outside of Android.


  • Use the cmake toolchain provided by the Android NDK.


  • Use FLAG_KEEP_SCREEN_ON instead of a wakelock for screensaver inhibition.


  • Use DisplayListener to listen to orientation changes.


  • Implement ALLEGRO_FRAMELESS on Android. This hides the navigation buttons and the bar on top.

Linux:

OSX:

  • Ensure system calls happen on the main thread.


  • Make things work on Catalina.

Hurd:

  • Fix pthreads (Andreas Rönnquist).

Windows:

  • Implement Windows version check using non-deprecated functions.


  • Abstract UNICODE vs ANSI string handling, switch to using UNICODE by default.


  • Enable debug window for DEBUGMODE on Windows.

SDL:

  • Fix requesting GLES profile on GL Allegro.


  • Add audio recorder implementation.


  • Don't link with dl, it's unnecessary.

Addons:

  • Add a whole bunch of al_is_*_initialized functions (Mark Oates).

Acodec addon:

  • Add MP3 support via the MiniMP3 library.

Audio addon:

  • Allow calling al_destroy_audio_recorder on NULL.


  • Fix some stream garbage audio issues for high playback speeds.

Image addon:

  • Add support for FreeImage library.


  • Always prefer non-system image loaders.

Python wrapper:

  • Fix a number of bugs (zachs18 and others).

Misc:

  • Add an .editorconfig file.


  • Convert our internal Python scripts to Python 3.

Examples:

  • ex_draw_bitmap - Add more options.

Holy heck, I never fully appreciated how many platforms Allegro runs on. I mean, GNU Hurd? That's incredible.

Thanks!

Well done peeps.

I don't know if I'll build binaries yet, as MinGW-W64 hasn't updated their gcc packages yet for download.
