The Simple Fast Multimedia Library (SFML) has reached version 2.0! SFML is a great c++ library for creating 2D applications and games, and offers cross-platform access to graphics, input, sound, networking. I’ve been using the beta version in Moonman for 18 months, and it has one of the nicest APIs for a library. Along with the new version, SFML also has a brand spanking new website with lots of helpful tutorials. I’d definitely recommend SFML to anyone who wants to build 2D games, or as a nice alternative to SDL/GLFW/GLUT/etc. And if you don’t use c++ don’t worry, SFML can be used from a number of other languages, such as Python, Ruby, and Java.
