Release Notes: A new f437_surface_new_sized function was added. It creates a F437Surface of limited rows and columns, scaled as large as possible, and centred in the SDL_Surface.
Release Notes: This release trims the interface down by adding a little state to F437Surface. It kills the F437Display abstraction and the C++ wrapper.
Release Notes: There have been some changes to how the surface API frees memory. A layer-based abstraction called 'F437Display' has been added, with corresponding C++ class fake437::Display. The C++ API has been slightly enriched.
Release Notes: Support for multiple (and user-defined) fonts, by way of the F437Font struct. The primitive interface needs the font passed in on every call, while the surface interface saves the font at surface creation. Use f437_get_font to get one of the pre-defined fonts: F437_FONT_8x8, F437_FONT_8x8_THIN, or F437_FONT_8x14. There is a new function f437_surface_try_new that doesn't abort() on allocation failure.
Release Notes: Several texinfo-related documentation bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: The API has changed slightly - callers need to pass a const SDL_Color* instead of F437Color enum values. f437_get_color() is used to convert a F437Color into a const SDL_Color*. The library is now a lot stricter about input parameters, particularly for surface operations. This should catch people accidentally writing out-of-bounds. All integer parameters are now 'int', instead of some messed up signed/unsigned nonsense with little benefit and a lot of pain.
Release Notes: Colors are now true to DosBox. F437_COLOR_TRANSPARENT has been added. A C++ wrapper for the surface operations has been defined. String operations now quickly print a string to the surface. A Texinfo manual has been added to make it easier to get started.
Release Notes: It's no longer possible to stomp arbitrary memory by writing off the edge of the passed SDL_Surface.
Release Notes: The API has been gutted and made much simpler, avoiding creating pointless data structures for the sake of a pseudo-OO interface.
Release Notes: The library is feature-complete and ready for interested developers to play with.
