Bugs were fixed and cross browser support was improved. Problems with sound and font rendering persist but are now less common (browsers have to fix their bugs).
- more self explanatory directory layout (to invite tinkering)
gamejs.Surface.blitmodifying passed in arguments
- new setters:
- new utility:
- event handling internal rewrite
- experimental IE9 compatibility
Stay on course: shake out bugs. No new features in core (except if PyGame provides it).
Font rendering is buggy on Linux due to browser or OS bugs. It works fine on Windows. A workaround would be too ugly so GameJs will wait for browsers to fix their bugs. Font rendering is non-essential: in most cases it is Good Enough to provide bitmap texts.
The same is true for audio bugs: Chrome will not play short sounds and has problem with re-playing an already used audio element. The workaround would be Flash. Not acceptable.
