Yes, definitely. The website is outdated.


Do you have a pre-build .jar? Nightly builds would be nice, Kevin used to have those.

edit:
Actually, I can build these and upload them, either to slick website or my own web space if anyone is interested.

edit2: slick.jar and javadocs, built every hour from "tags/Slick/0.3": http://www.powerengine2a.com/slick/

Slick0.3 is an old version. Could you build from the trunk/Slick version (there is an ANT build file with "slick-build" task). Or we could set up a tag if needed...

I thought I'd ask because it is a little obscure what to use currently.

Does the updated slick.jar depend on newer versions of its dependencies?

Maybe building the zip file and putting it up is best.

I agree! A ready to download jar (and maybe also a source code zip) could be good. I'll use dime zip for the time being.

By the way, thanks to devs for the effort of continue working in the project!!!

Dear friends,

I'm currently developing a (serious) breakout game with Slick. I discovered it months ago and really appreciate it. I was thinking about switching back to SDL 1.3, another amazing library that I know well, but as long as the Slick project is alive, it's very good news !

If there is a mailing list, I'd be interested ; let me know !

Best regards

Slick now uses the latest version of LWJGL - 2.8.5 nightly. Anyone who's got local copies of LWJGL (jars or natives) for their projects should probably update those as well. Also note, now the natives are packaged alongside Slick in a "natives" folder instead of placing them in a JAR.

Let me know if this causes any issues.

Hey guys,

Just to be clear, is the jar from dime (http://www.powerengine2a.com/slick/) a good version to rely on?
Or do I need to pull from BitBucket to get updates?

And maybe we should do something about the website to point people in these directions? Is Kevin the only one that can make those kind of updates?

Btw I love slick. It's great and works really well for what it was designed to do. It would be really really sad if it was to be lost in time.

No, that JAR is out of date.

Liam and some others are working on the new site:
http://www.slick2d.org/

You will have to pull from bitbucket until the next releases is uploaded to the site.

Sorry to hear about the changes, but it sounds like it will become much easier to post patches, which is great, as I have a number of enhancements I'd like to put forward in the coming months :D

Good luck with the new site, it's looking very nice

What's wrong with it? I do a pull before building.

edit: But I agree, best it downloaded from the official slick site as they know more about it.

Well currently nobody can download the source code as the bitbucket has gone haywire... um... what do we do?

Bitbucket works fine for me, both pulling and downloading.

what is the problem with it?

Post subject:  Re: State of Slick

If you go to the Downloads section it's empty for me o.0

https://bitbucket.org/kevglass/slick/downloads

Edit: nevermind I see the branches are downloadable. I need to figure out how to take the user straight to the branches tab on the downloads page.

Edit #2: I've just linked directly to the dev branch download zip file, should be all good.

It doesn't seem to be building the latest version of the development branch, I can't help more than that. How have you got your build script set up to run? I could use some guidance on automating daily builds on the web server if you wouldn't mind helping me out :)
