maybe its a linux thing ?I can only check on windows
The AWTGears and Gears tests don't use the same window dimensions. With that fixed (in svn), the awt test is still slightly faster (3800->3900 fps). - elias
With the recent changes in SVN, the native Gears test is now faster than AWTGears on my Ubuntu 7.10 with a nvidia geforce 140m graphics card.
I already removed display_impl.update() from read() and poll() on the input devices, so Display.pollDevices() should be much faster now.I don't like the overloaded boolean methods approach, though.
Nightly builds are not really practical, since we need access to all three platforms to build the natives. However, with a little luck, Mazon will release 1.1.4 tonight
