Release Notes

Old version of engine (0.7) becomes officially obsolete! Please do not use old API anymore because it significantly differs from new one.

Vortex2D Beta 1 changes:
  • polished path management, added path aliases
  • added gui widgets: Slider, ProgressBar, Panel, TextInput
  • added primitive drawing methods: DrawTriangle, DrawQuad, DrawPrimitives, DrawIndexedPrimitives
  • improved performance of graphics drawing 50%-200% (depends on sprite size)
  • updated Content Browser (content filter, FAQ link)
  • added new demos to Content Browser

Things are still unstable or missing:
  • audio API is not complete because of dependency nightmare
  • MutiContextDevice is not implemented
  • SpriteVortex interoperability
  • Few GUI widgets
  • Pacman gameplay demo based on 0.8 API version
