Up Topic Gosu / Gosu News / Gosu 0.7.26 released (& Hotfix Gem for Linux)
- - By jlnr (dev) Date 2011-01-09 11:09

Version 0.7.26 is available in the usual places.

• Ruby: Added Color#== and Color::argb/Color::rgba constructors
• All: Added Window#gl(z, &block) (Ruby) / Graphics::scheduleGL(functor, z) (C++)
• All. Optimized Gosu's rendering backend a bit
• Ruby: All Strings coming from Gosu are now correctly tagged as UTF-8 in Ruby 1.9
• Linux: Fixed TTF font height/clipping

This one is certainly a minor release for most users. I think the next release will go into the same direction: Finish some half-baked features even though it's annoying.

Huh? Minor? Being able to schedule OpenGL calls like other draw operations is pretty major. Awesome release!

For the minority that can get the ruby-opengl gem to work :) I had to temporarily bake my own glClear into Gosu to even test this. I always get "Invalid operation" using the gem and neither Google nor source code really explained the situation.

Regaurding the ruby-opengl gem, on Ubuntu (and I assume thus, on Debian) there is a package in the repository which should be used instead of the gem.  libopengl-ruby1.8 or libopengl-ruby1.9.1, depending on which version of ruby you are using.  Strangely, the 1.9.1 version is the one for 1.9.1.  Additionally, ruby1.9.1 likewise installs 1.9.2, at least on Ubuntu 10.10.

Good god, trying to use Ubuntu and Ruby together is like trying to dress a cat. ;___;

Not at all. I find it much more easy than windows, *before* the installers.

The use of that package is merely a suggestion. You can add the dependencies yourself, if you want. The package just makes it a bit easier.

I never use them myself though.. ..I use RVM for my rubies, so the packages don't work.

I have fortunately not dealt with Ruby on Windows. Homebrew and RVM make my life easy.

Did you add any extra dependencies? I seem unable to get the gem to build.

Here's the error I got, posted to pastebin.

Grrrr. I thought I was so smart for remembering to update the gem, except that I forgot the gem was for Linux and not OS X.

Now I have to push out gems.

Reverted the extconf.rb, and re-uploaded the gem as Does it work now?
Parent - By RavensKrag Date 2011-01-09 21:39
Works fine now, thanks ^_^

Gosu compiled natively for MSVC2010, contributed via email:

> I need to use the v100 toolset, so I compiled the libs for both debug and release on my Windows 7 machine with Visual Studio 2010 Professional. Tested it quickly on both my x86 and x64 machines, express edition or otherwise with success. Linked fine against a few varyingly primitive apps.
> I linked against fmodapi375 and the June2010 DXSDK version of dxguid.lib when it complained for the respective lib and header files.

Thanks to James Armstrong for this!
