SDL 1.2.15

Hello, here is a new release for SDL 1.2.15. Here are the changes:


  • video: xbios: Only change screen pointers and do Vsync if application uses double buffering.
  • video: gem: (Most changes contributed/inspired by work from Olivier Landemarre)
    • Align window work area on 16-pixels boundary, so the VDI does not have to shift bits in a bitplanes mode. The created window has a 16-pixels extra space to handle this alignment.
    • Avoid doing queries to AES for states that does not change, and for which we receive events.
    • Avoid changing mouse cursor shape when application did not request any change.
    • Only call appl_init() once, MyAES does not like calling appl_init/appl_exit several times.
    • Do not change palette unless application has focus


  • Fix interrupt mask for non-Atari hardware. Contributed by Vincent Riviere.


  • video: xbios: Add Supervidel specific video modes. Contributed by Pawel Goralski.


  • audio: Allocate audio buffer for application mixing in FastRAM if available. Contributed by Daniel Illgen.


  • cdrom: Return an empty list of drives, instead of error if no driver present.


  • audio: Compiled with mintlib 0.60.1 ( to fix GSXB detection.


  • video: gem: Changes in event management, to avoid blocking too much on it.


  • clavier: Fix in IKBD interrupt handler for coldfire CPU, contributed by Vincent Riviere.


  • video: xbios: Fixed centering on screen.
  • timer: Throttle calls to background task to avoid running them too frequently.
