    14      and actual output comparison.
    15  * Public license for SDL_compat.c, tests, and SDL_main*
    16  * Verify mouse grab support
    17  * Properly handle mouse grab with Vista DPI scaling
    18  * Make sure the mouse is where it's supposed to be when un-grabbed
    19  * Plan how to handle events on foreign windows
    20  * Add keyboard enumeration / name query API
    21  * Implement NET_WM_PING and NET_WM_PID/WM_CLIENT_MACHINE (?)
    22    - http://standards.freedesktop.org/wm-spec/wm-spec-1.3.html#KILLINGWINDOWS
    23  * Add a timeout parameter for SDL_WaitEvent() (?)
    24    - http://lists.libsdl.org/pipermail/sdl-libsdl.org/2008-May/thread.html#65067
    25  * Implement key repeat at the driver level
    26  * Add name -> keysym and name -> scancode lookup functions
    27  * Fix building haptic system on win32
    28  * Add always on top window styles
    29  * Add video modes that have an alpha channel?
    30  * Implement SDL_RenderReadPixels() for screenshots and automated testing

    32  * Add clipboard support (from scrap demo)
    33  * Add support for desktop windows?
    34  * Add support for synchronizing 2D updates with vblank (bug #406)

    37 
    38 Wish list for the 1.3 development branch:
    39 http://bugzilla.libsdl.org/
    40 
    41  * Add a way to register custom events
    42  * DirectInput joystick support needs to be implemented
    43  * Explicit vertical retrace wait (maybe separate from SDL_Flip?)
    44  * Shaped windows, windows without borders
    45  * Multiple display support
    46  * Add a timestamp to events
    47  * Add audio input API
    48  * Add modifier state to key and button events
    49 
    50 In the jump from 1.2 to 1.3, we should change the SDL_Rect members to
    51 int and evaluate all the rest of the datatypes.  This is the only place
    52 we should do it though, since the 1.2 series should not break binary
    53 compatibility in this way.
    54 
    55 Requests:
    56  * PCM volume control (deprecated, but possible)
