This is the Simple DirectMedia Layer, a general API that provides low
icculus@0
    12
level access to audio, keyboard, mouse, joystick, 3D hardware via OpenGL,
icculus@0
    13
and 2D framebuffer across multiple platforms.

This code is a compatibility layer; it provides a binary-compatible API for
icculus@0
    16
programs written against SDL 1.2, but it uses SDL 2.0 behind the scenes. If
icculus@0
    17
you are writing new code, please target SDL 2.0 directly and do not use this
icculus@44
    18
layer.

If you absolutely must have the real SDL 1.2 ("SDL 1.2 Classic"), please use
icculus@44
    21
the SDL-1.2 branch at https://hg.libsdl.org/SDL, which occasionally gets
icculus@44
    22
bug fixes but no formal release. But we strongly encourage you not to do that.
