     1.4 +This is the porting of 1.2.0 version of SDL (the latest stable one)
     1.5 +to AmigaOS/68k.
     1.6 +
     1.7 +All the bugs known of the past version have been corrected. And I've
     1.8 +added all the new SDL features.
     1.9 +
    1.10 +This version of SDL needs Cybergraphx V3 (r69+) or CyberGraphX V4
    1.11 +and AHI v3+. Probably it works also with P96 or CGXAga, but it's 
    1.12 +untested.
    1.13 +
    1.14 +This version is available as linked library for SAS/C and GCC, only 68k this 
    1.15 +time, a powerup (ppcemu compatible) and a morphos version will be ready quite 
    1.16 +soon (i hope).
    1.17 +
    1.18 +Implemented:
    1.19 +
    1.20 +- 8/16/24/32bit video modes, both fullscreen and windowed.
    1.21 +- Hardware surfaces.
    1.22 +- CGX blitting acceleration.
    1.23 +- CGX colorkey blitting acceleration.
    1.24 +- AHI audio (8/16 bit, with any audio format), always uses unit 0 for now.
    1.25 +- Thread support (maybe not 100% compatible with other implementations)
    1.26 +- Semaphores 
    1.27 +- Window resizing and backdrop windows (NEW)
    1.28 +- Joystick/Joypad support.
    1.29 +
    1.30 +To do:
    1.31 +
    1.32 +- CDRom audio playing support
    1.33 +- OpenGL (A guy was working on it but I've lost his tracks :( )
    1.34 +
    1.35 +The SAS/C library is distributed with debug info attached, to strip debug info 
    1.36 +simply add STRIPDEBUG argument to the linker.
    1.37 +
    1.38 +NOTE: SDL includes debug output using kprintf, to disable it add to your 
    1.39 +project a function like this:
    1.40 +
    1.41 +void kprintf(char *a,...)
    1.42 +{
    1.43 +}
    1.44 +
    1.45 +Otherwise you can redirect the debug to a console window with sushi, sashimi or
    1.46 +similar tools (the default output is the internal serial port). 
    1.47 +
