Updated the Amiga OS port of SDL (thanks Gabriele)
     1 
     2 All:
     3 	Audio rate conversion is only implemented by multiplying or dividing
     4 	by a power of two.  This is a side-effect of the requirement that the
     5 	raw audio buffer size be a power of two, and can hopefully be fixed.
     6 	This means 8 KHz audio converted to 22 KHz ends up being 16 KHz. :-/
     7 
     8 	When the implementation is writing directly to video memory the mouse
     9 	cursor doesn't work properly.  Applications which do this should use
    10 	their own mouse cursor and call SDL_ShowCursor(0) to hide the system
    11 	cursor.
    12 
    13 Linux:
    14 	Wide UNICODE character input (Kanji, etc.) is not yet supported.
    15 	It requires handling of keyboard mapping events and using the XIM
    16 	input translation extension.  I will implement it as requested.
    17 	Latin-1 keyboard input works fine.
    18 
    19 	The AAlib, GGI, and SVGAlib video drivers are not heavily tested.
    20 
    21 Win32:
    22 	The MCI driver can't tell if the CD-ROM drive is paused or stopped.
    23 
    24 	The SDL_INIT_EVENTTHREAD flag is not supported on Win32
    25 	(Idea: create a separate DirectInput polling thread)
    26 	The main purpose of this flag is for smooth cursor motion in
    27 	fullscreen environments.
    28 
    29 	Wide UNICODE character input (Kanji, etc.) is not yet supported.
    30 	This requires the ToUnicode() API which is only implemented on
    31 	Windows NT/2000, not on Windows 95/98.
    32 	Latin-1 keyboard input works fine.
    33 
    34 	Joysticks are only supported under the Win32 MultiMedia API,
    35 	DirectInput support is not yet implemented.
    36 
    37 BeOS:
    38 	BePPC is not supported, apparently not even by Be Inc.
    39 
    40 	SDL_WM_GrabInput() is not implemented.
    41 	Does anyone know how to do this?  SDL_WM_GrabInput() is designed
    42 	to prevent the user from switching input and mouse focus away from
    43 	the SDL application.
    44 
    45 	Continuous relative mouse motion is not implemented.
    46 
    47 	The CD driver doesn't detect SCSI CD-ROMs yet.
    48 
    49 	Wide UNICODE character input (Kanji, etc.) has not been tested.
    50 	Latin-1 keyboard input works fine.
    51 
    52 MacOS:
    53 	Palette handling isn't implemented in windowed mode yet.
    54 
    55 	Audio hasn't been extensively tested, in particular the locking
    56 	isn't implemented and mixer routines may not call malloc() or free()
    57 	because they are called at interrupt time.
    58 
    59 	SDL_WM_GrabInput() is not implemented.
    60 	Does anyone know how to do this?  SDL_WM_GrabInput() is designed
    61 	to prevent the user from switching input and mouse focus away from
    62 	the SDL application.
    63 
    64 	Continuous relative mouse motion is not implemented.
    65 
    66 	SDL_AddTimer() and SDL_RemoveTimer() haven't been implemented yet.
    67 
    68 	Not all of the keys are properly recognized on the keyboard.
    69 
    70 MacOS X:
    71 	Fullscreen mode doesn't work - it requires the QuickTime framework
    72 	and that the new SDL window gets raised to the top of the Z order.
    73 
    74 	Palette handling isn't implemented in windowed mode yet.
    75 
    76 	Native sound and video routines are not finished, though Carbon
    77 	seems to work fairly well.
    78 
    79 	Joysticks and CD-ROM functions are not implemented yet.
    80 
    81 	SDL_WM_GrabInput() is not implemented.
    82 	Does anyone know how to do this?  SDL_WM_GrabInput() is designed
    83 	to prevent the user from switching input and mouse focus away from
    84 	the SDL application.
    85 
    86 	Continuous relative mouse motion is not implemented.
    87 
    88 	Not all of the keys are properly recognized on the keyboard.
    89 
    90 	MacOS X seems to have a broken pthread_cancel() implementation.
    91 
    92 FreeBSD:
    93 	pthread_cancel() isn't supported by FreeBSD 3.X, so threads don't
    94 	work on versions of FreeBSD earlier than 4.0.
    95 
    96 	The CD-ROM handling doesn't work completely.
    97 
    98 	Wide UNICODE character input (Kanji, etc.) is not yet supported.
    99 	It requires handling of keyboard mapping events and using the XIM
   100 	input translation extension.  I will implement it as requested.
   101 	Latin-1 keyboard input works fine.
   102 
   103 Solaris:
   104 	The joystick functions are not implemented yet.
   105 
   106 	Wide UNICODE character input (Kanji, etc.) is not yet supported.
   107 	It requires handling of keyboard mapping events and using the XIM
   108 	input translation extension.  I will implement it as requested.
   109 	Latin-1 keyboard input works fine.
   110

   114 	The joystick functions are not implemented yet.
   115 
   116 	Wide UNICODE character input (Kanji, etc.) is not yet supported.
   117 	It requires handling of keyboard mapping events and using the XIM
   118 	input translation extension.  I will implement it as requested.
   119 	Latin-1 keyboard input works fine.
   120 
   121 OpenBSD:  -= NOT YET SUPPORTED =-
   122 	This is reported to work, but I haven't verified this.
   123 
   124 	Wide UNICODE character input (Kanji, etc.) is not yet supported.
   125 	It requires handling of keyboard mapping events and using the XIM

   143 
   144 	The joystick subsystem isn't implemented yet.
   145 
   146 	Endian detection doesn't work yet - needs a unique CPP symbol.
   147 
   148 	Wide UNICODE character input (Kanji, etc.) is not yet supported.
   149 	It requires handling of keyboard mapping events and using the XIM
   150 	input translation extension.  I will implement it as requested.
   151 	Latin-1 keyboard input works fine.
   152

   155 	http://www.kom.e-technik.tu-darmstadt.de/~griff/SDL/
   156 
   157 QNX:  -= NOT YET SUPPORTED =-
   158 	Configuration doesn't work right, Makefiles still need to be
   159 	tweaked (need to add libraries to any apps that use sdl_config
   160 	to figure out what libs they need).
   161  
   162 	Only static libraries are being made, no shared ones.
   163  
   164 	The only hardware surface is the primary view surface.
   165  
   166 	Mouse events don't seem to be working right.
   167  
   168 	Fullscreen doesn't display correctly.
   169  
   170 	The software surfaces could use some speed up.
   171  
   172 	It doesn't look like the OpenGL stuff is there. (did a grep for
   173 	PdCreateOpenGLContext, nothing found).
   174  
   175 	The mouse cursor doesn't look right.
