SDL 2.0 point releases have ranged from being a few months apart to as much as two years apart. Fortunately, SDL 2.0.5 is now being put together for release just nine months after SDL 2.0.4.

With the Mercurial repository, Sam Lantinga bumped the version in preparation for the SDL 2.0.5 release. The SDL 2.0.5 release hasn't officially happened yet, but it should be here soon.

SDL 2.0.5 will bring relative mouse mode for the Mir back-end, relative mouse mode on Wayland, and audio capture support as some of the noteworthy changes to the Simple DirectMedia Library. There has also been a fair amount of work on tvOS support this cycle too if my memory serves me.

Stay tuned for more information when the libsdl 2.0.5 release is officially made available.
