Allegro.pas 4.4.5 released

Allegro.pas 4.4.5 released

11/04/2015 5:30 AM | Niunio

After almost 3 years, a new version of the Allegro.pas game library is available from its download page.

This version has some API modifications, as well as a lot of improvements that makes it faster (and sometimes smaller) executables. Most important changes from version 4.4.4 below:

  • Some new functions and procedures that detects system stuff at runtime, and new units for Windows and UNIX specifics.

  • A new BOOLEAN type that allows better integration with library.

  • Now it uses ARRAYs and VAR/OUT on parameters instead of pointers, that allows to reduce executable sizes and faster execution, and a side effect is reduction of HINT and WARNING lines while compilation!

  • Several bug fixes in demo game, al_apply_matrix_f and al_pack_fseek functions and in examples.

  • A lot of changes on documentation.

Also note that in near future I'll move TRUNK to BRANCHES/4.4, and BRANCHES/5.0 to TRUNK. This doesn't mean that I'll forget version 4.4: I'll update it if I find bugs or somebody sends me interesting patches or additions, but it's time to take version 5.0 seriously.

Enjoy!


Comments

I thought Pascal was dead.. I always liked the language however. I recently "discovered" the Lazarus project.. I do hope it will become what Delphi once was. ( that is truely a zombie nowadays)
