libtcod-1.5.0 released !

Changes since 1.5.0rc1 :

  • fixed python waitForKeypress
  • improved random number generator when you delete the default RNG (a new one is generated instead of crashing)
  • fix ASCII code returned for AltGr+0-9 key combinations
  • new sample to show how to achieve blazing fast console filling in python (courtesy of Jotaf). Use python 2.6 + numpy to get the best experience

Main changes since 1.4.2 :

  • for C and C++, debug versions of the libraries with hardened console module
  • unicode support
  • subcell resolution blitting
  • approximated Gaussian distribution
  • Dijkstra pathfinding
  • Name generator
  • Now RNG module supports several algorithms : Mersenne twister and Complementary Multiply With Carry (the later is better)
  • New video tutorials by Mingos here.

Detailed changelog is here.

A big thank to Mingos and Jotaf for their huge contributions on this version, and for their “overall achievement” ! libtcod wouldn’t be the same without them 😉
