Progress on Tao.Sdl - the native bindings for SDL.NET PDF Print E-mail

My attention has been focussed lately on Tao.Sdl, the CLS-compliant C# SDL bindings. For the SDL library, I have revised all of the method signatures, added/reformatted all of the documentation and implemented basically everything. Some things (SDL threading model, some of the low-level read-write operations) have better .NET analogues and will not be implemented.

SDL_image has also been revised as well. I will be tackling SDL_mixer and SDL_ttf next.

I have also started to add unit tests with Nunit. This has helped greatly since it is an quick and easy way to test a lot of functionality.

Once these are done then I will start on converting SDL.NET to use Tao.SDL instead of the unsafe native bindings.

The Tao.Sdl sources can found at the Mono CVS site.

Thanks to the efforts of Vector, the #sdl.net channel is available at irc.freenode.net. Please drop in and chat about SDL.NET or anything else.

If #sdl.net does not come up automatically on the channel list window on your chat client, you may need to type in the channel manually to join. I had this issue with xchat (Windows) and colloquy (MacOSX).

New Tao.Sdl file Release and Tao.Sdl now part of the Mono Project PDF Print E-mail

Due to the efforts of Randy Ridge, Tao has been added to the Mono Project. You can access the CVS repository and download the code. I have uploaded a copy of the Tao.Sdl source plus a compiled binary. You can get it here.

I have started to rewrite SDL.NET to use Tao.Sdl, but there is a lot of work to do on both libraries. Most importantly, there is a lot of marshaling work that needs to be done in Tao.Sdl so that SDL.NET can better create higher level functionality. Any help and/or advice will be greatly appreciated!

I'll be taking a break from SDL.NET development for about three weeks because my wife and I just had a baby. During the last few days I have not even logged in to my computer let alone had time to work on the project. Of course, since progress had been slow as of late, this may not seem like much of a changeĀ :-).

Actually, I have been working quite a bit on the Tao.Sdl bindings. Many users had requested fixes for some of the native bindings and that is where my time had been going until a few days ago. By mid-Septmeber i will start to look at the native bindings and work on SDL.NET again.

Thanks Dave

Randy of Tao has released a new version of the library bindings. He has included my work on the SDL C# bindings and the Tao NAnt build system. The new release also includes new support for DevIl and GLFW in addition to OpenGL, OpenAL and Cg. SDL.NET will be built on the .NET 1.1 and Mono versions of Tao.
