LWJGL 2.4.2 Released
« on: April 11, 2010, 18:27:58 »
Time for a new update - with a slew of new stuff and fixes

2.4
  • new: Added support for OpenGL 3.3 and OpenGL 4.0.
  • new: Added support for APPLE extensions.
  • new: Added @NoErrorCheck on vertex data methods.
  • new: The debug build will now track Begin/End pairs and never call GetError inside them.
  • new: Example on how to allow Space Invader Test Application to work as an applet with minimal code change.
  • new: Updates to OpenGL methods to allow easier usage (support for single primitive input/output parameters).
  • new: Support for String in OpenGL methods.
  • new: Option to not call processMessages during Display.update.
  • new: Allow LWJGL applets to work when seperate_jvm parameter is not supported (i.e. java plugin1) (semi experimental).
  • new: Added support for NVX_gpu_memory_info (experimental extension).
  • new: Added support for initializing extensions that are not exposed in GL_EXTENSIONS (enables EXT_direct_state_access and NV_primitive_restart on AMD GPUs, use at your own risk).
  • new: Mouse no longer limited to just ungrabbing at the position it was grabbed, now you can can call setCursorPosition(x,y) while mouse is grabbed and ungrab the mouse at any position you like.
  • fix: Infinite focus loop when using Display.setParent() + JWS + Linux
  • fix: Updated jars to conform to security updates in Java Update 19.
  • fix: Optimization to message processing.
  • fix: Fix for grabbed mouse deltas.
  • fix: Fixed mouse grabbing on secondary monitors (someone owes a beer).
  • fix: Added extra device polling when vsync is enabled, to reduce input lag.
  • fix: Updated @Optional functions for AMD GPUs (driver version: 10.3).
  • fix: Consistent mouse grab behaviour on all platforms. Mouse will now ungrab at the same place it was grabbed from.
  • fix: Mouse sometimes reporting movement on title area.
  • fix: Try and find a sensible video driver to report on rather than assuming it's video0.
  • fix: Added new XRandR stuff (fixes issue with blank screen).

2.4.1
  • new: extensions: AMD_conservative_depth, EXT_shader_image_load_store, EXT_vertex_attrib_64bit, NV_gpu_program5, NV_gpu_shader5, NV_shader_buffer_store, NV_tessellation_program5, NV_vertex_attrib_integer_64bit.
  • fix: Correct native version for mac os x.

2.4.2
  • fix: Linux applets failed due to missing doPriviledged for XRandR.

I dont have problems with openal ...

jnlp sortof fixed ... extension should work and so do all demos that dont use resources

unable to fix at this point in time - see http://www.javagaming.org/index.php/topic,22230.0.html

will be fixed one of these days when the changes needed have been done.

for now, extension works as do all demos, just not the ones that require resources.

we got a report on that on IRC -  seems something funky is going on for os x...

looking into that

stacktrace:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.LinkageError: Version mismatch: jar version is '18', native libary version is '17'
   at org.lwjgl.Sys.<clinit>(Sys.java:103)
   at tutor.SysSnippet.main(SysSnippet.java:7)

The exception is thrown because DefaultSysImplementation#getJNIVersion()
return different value as the MacOSXSysImplementation.getRequiredJNIVersion(),
which is always 18. DefaultSysImplementation#getJNIVersion() is a native
method and it works.

ive been hammering at the build system to not making it happen again - but have issues to make this work. However I plan on doing a 2.4.1 release tonight. In the mean time a binary from the build system should work now.

download updated with 2.4.2

jnlp is still broken and this is being worked on - but not as high priority. Hopefully fixed by the end of the weekend.
