DESKTOP --
VSXu, the OpenGL-accelerated audio/music visualizer combined with a visual programming language, released their v0.6 release to end out April. The VSXu 0.6 milestone incorporates more than two years of work.

VSXu 0.6 features a complete refactoring of the project's code-base, rewritten bitmap/texture handling, and a variety of other work. VSXu 0.6 features a lot of low-level changes as the developers are even working on a game, "Luna Sky", powered in part by VSXu. They mention in the change-log:
This release has been long in the making, mainly due to the fact that we've been releasing and continuing work on our action platformer game - "Luna Sky".

As with all previous projects, VSXu is a big part of Luna Sky as well, supplying low level graphics routines. The game engine and game logic is a separate project.

A lot of the work on "Luna Sky" has spilled over on the VSXu project.

New modules to VSXu 0.6 include a gamepad input module, keyboard input module, an OpenGL debugging module, and other changes. The VSXu music visualizer player has improved window handling, borderless window support, and other improvements.
