SDL 2.23.1 Released With SDL2 Switching To A New Versioning Scheme
SDL is adopting a new versioning scheme inspired by GLib and Flatpak, which is why SDL 2.23.1 is the new development release succeeding SDL 2.0.22. Even numbers in the minor release indicate production-ready stable status, odd numbers for development pre-releases. The third component / patch level will indicate bug-fix only updates.
SDL 2.23.1 besides the versioning change does add a number of new APIs, introduces a Direct3D 12 renderer implementation for Windows, and adds a number of different hints for Windows and Linux. The Windows D3D12 renderer was added with hopes of Xbox support for the Xbox Game Development Kit (GDK).
