PyPy logo

PyPy 2.6 has been released. PyPy is an implementation of a large subset of the Python (2.7) language. PyPy features a just-in-time compiler that compiles Python code into machine code at run time to increase the execution speed of Python scripts compared to CPython (in most cases).

Change log: http://pypy.readthedocs.org/en/latest/whatsnew-2.6.0.html

PyOpenGL 3.1.1a1 released - Jun 15, 2015

Mike C. Fletcher has released PyOpenGL 3.1.1a1.

Change log:

  • Python 3.4 compatibility fixes
  • new data-type declarations to match current Khronos
  • ability to use opaque pointers as keys in dictionaries (osmesa fix)
  • removing a few now-redundant hand-written wrappers
  • fix for a missing import on gles2 wrapper
  • tweaked error-message for debugging clarity
  • allow for the shader convenience function to skip validate-on-compile

If you're using PyOpenGL and one of the above fixes sounds like something you care about, then you may want to test with this release. There's not much changed for 3.1.1, so Mike expects that there will be this single alpha, followed by beta and final releases for PyOpenGL 3.1.1.

pysdl2-cffi 0.8.0 released - Jun 15, 2015

pysdl2-cffi 0.8.0, a Python wrapper for SDL2 written using cffi, has been released.

Change log:

  • The wrapper is now built with cffi 1.1ís verify() mode and requires a C compiler to build. It is much faster than the previous version on CPython.
  • Appveyor-built binary packages now available on Windows. On Windows, the necessary SDL2 DLLs are now a pip-installed dependency.

Announcing SplatGL - Oct 30, 2014

Michael Long has released the code for his Splat Graphics Library. SplatGL is based on SDL 2.0 and OpenGL 2.0. It aims to provide an efficient way to draw 2D sprites with basic effects such as rotation and scaling.

SplatGL is written in C and also provides Python bindings, which rely on Marcus von Appen's PySDL2 bindings. It is equally usable in both CPython and PyPy.

SplatGL is still under development, and its API is still evolving. It is already usable for the basic needs of sprite- and tile-based games.
