I am happy to announce the release of Gosu 0.7.4, which is already
available via ‘gem install gosu’ on Mac OS X and Windows, including
the CptnRuby sample game previously not bundled with the gem.
Information, documentation, non-gem-downloads and a source release
for Linux can be found on:
Gosu is a 2D game development library designed from the ground up
around 3D accelerated hardware, yet also provides classes for sound
effects, music as well as keyboard, mouse and gamepad input. The
library goes to great lengths to abstract recurring annoyances away
and to hide them behind clean, object-oriented interfaces.
The library has steadily evolved since its inception (2001), and has
been referenced on this list for a few times. However, this is the
first official announcement, so feedback is of course more than
Gosu 0.7.4 fixes the following bugs:
- Exceptions can’t terminate Ruby anymore (SWIG wrapping oversight in
- Improved support for some gamepads on OS X.
