Selected improvements

  • This is a major refactoring of the codebase, removing a number of heavy dependencies including numpy.
  • The codebase in now pure-Python, using ctypes to interface with libraries. A compiler is no longer necessary to build from source.
  • Numerous Python 3 compatibility bugs were resolved. Python 3 is now the preferred interpreter, although Python 2.7 remains supported.
  • Greatly improved test coverage.
  • pygame and curses interfaces are now deprecated and will be removed in 2.1. They may be omitted from packaged versions. sdl2 and ansi interfaces remain supported.
  • A large number of bugs have been fixed, in particular console issues.
