A new release of SDL2 for AmigaOS 4.1 from Hyperion Entertainment CVBA by Sam Lantinga. Simple DirectMedia Layer, or SDL for short, is a low-level audio, keyboard, mouse, touchscreen and graphics library aimed at creating low-level (mostly 2D) games on various platforms. SDL2 provides a big improvement from the first SDL: it now has hardware acceleration for 2D rendering, amongst other things, but this is the most important. SDL2 has everything that you need to make a great game: graphics, TrueType Fonts, sound, controller (keyboard, mouse, touchscreen, etc). The new release of SDL2 for AmigaOS 4.1 and AmigaOne systems comes with a user and developer version.
