Raspberry Pi Support Added To SDL2 Library
The Simple DirectMedia Layer post-SDL2.0 code now has support for the popular low-cost low-end Raspberry Pi ARM platform.
The Raspberry Pi SDL2 support that was committed this weekend allows for this open-source library that's popular amongst games and other multimedia software to work without an X.Org Server, supports, hardware-accelerated OpenGL ES 2.0, ALSA-based sound, evdev-based input devices, and udev-based input device hot-plugging support. With this commit, the UDEV and EVDEV support to SDL2 has been unified.
The Raspberry Pi platform support landed with this commit and will be found in the forthcoming SDL 2.0.1 release. Meanwhile, planned for SDL2 is also 7.1 audio support, Mir Display Server support, Wayland support, and numerous other changes as outlined earlier on Phoronix.
