The Simple DirectMedia Layer project (sporting a redesigned website incidentally) has released version 1.2.7 of their gaming-oriented multimedia library, which is used in the majority of Linux game development efforts. Changes include:

  • Added support for remote XVideo
  • Use a higher refresh rate by default on Windows
  • Fixed compiling with broken Linux 2.6 headers
  • Fixed compiling with ALSA 1.0 and reduced ALSA CPU usage
  • Updated libtool and automake support
  • Added CPU feature detection functions to SDL_cpuinfo.h
  • Fixed illegal instruction crash using 3DNow on Intel processors
  • Fixed X11 mode line crash with only one video mode
