MurgaLua full release

Hi,

Version 0.6.0 stays as it is, but I won't be making a full release of it, as I have already got a little ahead of myself.

So the next is 0.6.5 ...

I am aiming for end of this week or some time next week ... My better half is out of the country for a while so I should be able to give this the time it deserves.

After the API changes I made with the 0.5 series people seemed to think I'd be doing this regularly ... That is not the case, I did it because there was a big gap, and I was taken by surprise by the success of murgaLua. Either way, 0.6.0 is 100% backward compatible with 0.5.5, and I expect all future releases to be, so there is no good reason not to start using any version you like ...

What I have done or am intending to do :

  • Fixed a couple of minor regressions. DONE
  • read_image implemented and made stable on all platforms (!!) DONE
    Allows you to capture any part of a window as an RGB image.
  • RGB image has a new NON-Fltk method (save as PNG). DONE
    I do not intend to support the saving of anything other than PNG's.
  • Off screen FLTK api.
    Abstract this in a way that can be used from murgaLua
  • Tiled image API - Allows you extract an array of images from one image (as tiles).
  • Animation control.
  • Table (grid) control.
  • Documentation.
If anyone wants to help they can do by submitting suggestions, tutorials, screen shots of your apps, or helping with documentation.

For the 0.7.0 series I'll be doing a lot of time consuming development, so anyone wanting a stable environment should stick with 0.6.5 as opposed to waiting... I'd be wanting to implement :
  • Size improvements.
  • Better FLUID integration.
  • C/Invoke type functionality.
  • Sound (where available).
  • Native 64 bit builds.
  • And much more !! ;-)
And it'll take a LONG time to do all this ...

Dropped from the list are :
  • Serial port support (this really should be a 3rd party module).
    Which I am happy to build if someone sends it to me
Let me know what you think.

Cheers
JohnM
