What Features would you like too be added to Gosu?

I think if people say what featues they would like added then that would help gosu progress well,as it would be great to know what features
people would use when they are added,instead of adding random features that may never or hardly be used

I would like the following added

#1 - 100% free code so that you can use it for freeware or commercial products without needing to pay for any extra licenses ( like fmod if you are going to sell your game )

#2 - Dual game pad support for Windows,Mac and Linux preferably with Vibration Feedback Support

I can't remember Gosu doing something like that.

>#2 - Dual game pad support for Windows,Mac and Linux preferably with Vibration Feedback Support


I think there are only a few people that really would use that .

Yeh I know though as julian has said he does not want to add features that will never be used
and I though if people could say what features they want added that would help julian decide what features would be used most and too add first

yeh maybe so though I think it would be a nice feature to have,I would use this feature if it was added

I think that some kind of class which allows to render particles of the same particle pool at once (instead of calling hundreds of times Image.draw each frame) would be useful, since it would speed up particles systems.

Note that I'm not asking for a particle system class, but for some kind of Gosu::Image group that renders every element of that group in the same OpenGL call.

benko, I don't want to spoil the fun of this thread, but this is exactly what is coming next—a system to group drawing operations and reuse them. I don't know how well it can be applied to particle systems, because you would still need to update all the single particles independently, but I guess only experimentation will answer that :) I am currently targeting map drawing primarily.
