    Phoronix: SDL 2.0.6 Appears To Be Getting Closer To Release

    It's looking like version 2.0.6 of SDL, the Simple DirectMedia Library that's widely used by cross-platform games and other applications, could soon be released...

    For me only old SDL1 games break alt-tab (as well as games using some other toolkits like allegro). However some window managers like Enlightenment still break alt-tab with SDL2. It works fine in xfwm (4.12) or OpenBox though.

    Meta key works for me with Gnome3 to temporary exit games. Only found 1 game it didn't work with, don't remember the game, and 1 game with graphic stack issue when going back into the game, Counter Strike GO, crosshair doesn't come back.

    It really is a essential piece of software! Anybody knows how to check which game e.g. on Steam is using SDL? Would be interesting to see if some of them run natively on Wayland.

    SDL really is a critical piece of the Linux gaming ecosystem, yet there's still only a few people working on it, and not even fulltime. Kind of sad, given it's importance to the gaming ecosystem.

    I wonder if they'll finally add support for the One S controller. It's ancient, yet still not supported.
