RE: Future plans ...

My personal favorite long-term direction for murgaLua would be more of a slant towards multimedia. Still I miss some truly free alternative to Adobe Flash. I did some experiments (e.g., a closer look at luacairo, Pixeltoaster, portaudio, rtaudio) and a little bit of web research lately, but did not come up with a suitable proposal for lightweight yet powerful multimedia extensions for murgaLua yet.
I'd like to have the following features:
- fast yet high quality 2D vector graphics (cairo/luacairo is too slow for realtime animations)
- audio (portaudio/rtaudio both seem ok but lack any file format binding - wav, ogg/vorbis, or mp3)
- video (no idea yet)
- also murgaLua lacks platform-independent printing support. This is hard to achieve, I know...

If someone knows of suitable libraries for these purposes which ideally even offer lua bindings, I would be very pleased to know.

Regards,
Gerald
