SGE 0.11.0 and xSGE 0.2.0 Released + Name Change

Item posted by Julian Marchant <onpon4> on Tue 19 Aug 2014 02:20:23 AM UTC.

Version 0.11.0 of the SGE has been released. As always, it can be found in the download page:

http://stellarengine.nongnu.org/download.html

This release features only a couple of changes:

  • Colors are now specified as objects of a new class called sge.Color, rather than arbitrary kinds of values.
  • sge.StellarClass has been renamed to sge.Object. This is a better name for it.

As a side effect of the new sge.Color class, the version of the Pygame SGE that works with Python 3 no longer requires Pygame 1.9.2; it should work with Pygame 1.9.1 now. This won't have a huge practical effect; Pygame 1.9.1 is difficult to compile for Python 3 anyway. However, it is an option now.

Alongside SGE 0.11.0, xSGE 0.2.0 has been released. This release of xSGE makes it compatible with the SGE changes, and it also changes the message functions in xsge.gui so that they can be used like the message functions that used to be in the SGE.

Additionally, I have changed the name of the SGE. It's still called the SGE, but "SGE" now stands for "SGE Game Engine", rather than "Stellar Game Engine". I made this change because the SGE no longer has any connection to Stellar. I have been thinking of making this name change for a long time, but I finally decided to go through with it when I found out that Stellar's development seems to have started again some months ago.
