release notes:

  ah... finally Guile-SDL can mask out rodential (spit spit) events!

  observant people will notice the beginning of coverage methodology in
  subdir cov/ -- admittedly weak heuristics but the framework is in place.
  fyi, the second url below is for module (ttn read-text-db-table), which
  is only needed if you wish to regenerate the .tdt files.

  lastly, "make check" now includes a fading "test" (in quotes because
  all the tests require somebody to actually look at them to judge their
  result; they are not rigorously standalone).


README excerpt:

  This directory contains Guile-SDL, a set of modules that provide bindings
  for SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) to enable Guile programmers to do all
  the nice things you can do with SDL.

  Most of the SDL functions have been wrapped with the exception of a few
  functions that were too C-centric.  The SDL Threads and the Audio funcions
  haven't been included because of the problems with Guile code being run
  from more than one thread.  However audio programming can be done with the
  module `(sdl mixer)' that requires the SDL_mixer library.

  Also included are SDL_gfxPrimitives-1.4 and SDL_rotozoom-1.4
  (by A. Schiffler <address@hidden>) and bindings for them.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 0.3.1 | 2005-01-08

    - bugfix: `make-surface' and `create-rgb-surface' no longer ignore `flags'

        These procs used to internally hardcode SDL_HWSURFACE instead of
        using the `flags' argument.

    - dropped (sdl sdl) proc: scale-surface

        This was never implemented.  Its advertized functionality was
        also redundant w/ `zoom-surface', which furthermore has the
        benefit of a more flexible interface.

    - print representation for flagstash objects now begins with "#"

        This is to follow the Scheme convention for printing objects
        that cannot be `read' back in.

    - implementation for (sdl sdl) proc: event-state
    - implementation for (sdl sdl) proc: peep-events

        Previously the interface was available but calling these procs
        resulted in a "not yet implemented" error.

    - new (sdl misc-utils) proc: copy-surface
    - new (sdl misc-utils) proc: ignore-all-event-types-except

    - new module: (sdl simple)
