Release v0.8.3.0

Finalspace  —  2 weeks ago [Edited 7 minutes later]
Hi everyone,

i have another release for you all ;-)

This release contains a few bugfixes and a couple of new stuff.


The waiting for multiple threads in win32 was busted, so i rewritten it without using the broken WaitForMultipleObjects. There was a crash in fplThreadTerminate when the thread has already exited, which i fixed it.

Also i started to use the slow CLion in win32 as well - using the MingW compiler, so i fixed some bugs for that as well. Btw. i dont know why, but visual studio 2017 is extremely unstable right now and always restarts automatically all the time. It may be that VS cannot handle the FPL source anymore, which is now > 600 KB and 16k of lines.
I really need to try 4coder and just use VS as the compiler/debugger only - like casey does. But 4coder is still missing some important features for me: Auto-Formatting code, Auto-Completion field list, a G-Experts like extreme fast function/type filter.


I changed the keyboard event handling a bit, so that you can finally detect key repeats. There are no longer events for KeyDown or KeyUp, its just a Button event and there is a separated state now (Release, Pressed, Repeat). The mouse event handling is changed in the same way as well.

I added size_t for all atomic operations and added increment functions for all types as well.
Oh and i added two handy functions for converting S32 to a String and vice versa.

In addition i added multisamping anti-aliasing (MSAA) support for modern OpenGL context creation ;-)

Lastly i updated all demo projects and added a new one: FPL_ImageViewer -> A multithreaded hoping to be fast image viewer.

As usual the release is tagged and documentations are updated.
