i'm happy to announce the first release of the directfb egg, a
Chicken[1] scheme binding for the DirectFB[2] graphics library.

it does not yet provide access to the full api, but already covers
many interesting parts like DisplayLayers, Windows, Surfaces, Image-
and VideoProviders, Fonts and InputDevices.

see for a few simple
examples for using directfb from chicken. [3]

i've tested it on linux-x86-64 using chicken 2.732 and linux-ppc using
chicken 3.0.0.  version 1.1.1 of directfb is required (and pkg-config).

i've released it on both the 2 and 3 branch but for some reason the v2
release didn't show up on Eggs Unlimited 2 and in the egg repository,
so if you are still using chicken 2.x you'll have to download the egg
manually atm. (you can use the v3 egg for chicken 2.x).

future releases of the directfb egg will only happen in the v3 branch.

i'd very much appreciate any comments, bug reports or other feedback.


[3] passing directfb arguments on the command line is not yet
supported, so if you e.g. want to try out the examples under X11 you
have to do export DFBARGS=system=x11 before starting them.
