              I am really happy that development on SDL2 has been reinvigorated. I've been amazed that I can recompile some very crufty old SDL2 apps against newer revisions with no changes to the code and end up with completely native Wayland apps. Bravo!

                I might be wrong but I think it refers to game controller or joystick hat. I think in modern game controllers, it's the right analog stick?
