== Rubygame 2.4.0
Release focus: Events.
=== Features
- New Events module, with a suite of new and revised event classes.
The new classes offer full functionality as the older classes.
- Use Rubygame::EventQueue#enable_new_style_events to enable the new
event classes. This will become the default in Rubygame 3.0.
- Uses symbols instead of integer constants for keyboard keys and
mouse buttons (e.g. :a, :space, :mouse_left, :mouse_right).
- Better unicode / international keyboard text input support.
(See Rubygame::Events::KeyPressed#string)
- More natural and memorable class naming scheme.
- New hook-based event handling system.
(NOTE: Requires use of the new event classes.)
- Rubygame::EventHandler class.
EventHandler holds many EventHook instances. It handles each event
by passing it to matching hooks.
- Rubygame::EventHandler::HasEventHandler mixin module.
Include this in your custom classes to add easy event handling
and event hook creation abilities.
- Rubygame::EventHook class.
- Rubygame::EventActions module.
Has several pre-made event action classes to use with EventHook.
- Rubygame::EventTriggers module.
Has several pre-made event trigger classes to use with EventHook.
- Added Rubygame.enable_key_repeat and Rubygame.disable_key_repeat.
Thanks to atiaxi for this new feature!
=== Fixes
- Fixed: EventQueue#peek_each didn't yield any events.
- Fixed: Segfault in extract_rgba_u8_as_u8() on x86_64 systems.
Thanks to ElCuGo for this fix!
- Fixed: Several "cast from pointer" warnings on x86_64 systems.
- Fixed: Build system didn't correctly compile with debug symbols
when using "debug" option.
- Fixed: Surface#get_at didn't work correctly for 8-bit Surfaces.
- Fixed: Ftor.new_from_to would always complain about "wrong number
of arguments". Thanks to atiaxi for this fix!
=== Other Stuff
- The panda demo (samples/demo_rubygame.rb) has been renovated to
demonstrate how to use the new features, and to be a better example.
- Old event classes are deprecated and will be removed in 3.0.
- ActiveEvent (use Events::InputFocusGained,
Events::WindowMinimized, and
- ExposeEvent (use Events::WindowExposed)
- JoyAxisEvent (use Events::JoystickAxisMoved)
- JoyBallEvent (use Events::JoystickBallMoved)
- JoyDownEvent (use Events::JoystickButtonPressed)
- JoyHatEvent (use Events::JoystickHatMoved)
- JoyUpEvent (use Events::JoystickButtonReleased)
- KeyDownEvent (use Events::KeyPressed)
- KeyUpEvent (use Events::KeyReleased)
- MouseDownEvent (use Events::MousePressed)
- MouseMotionEvent (use Events::MouseMoved)
- MouseUpEvent (use Events::MouseReleased)
- QuitEvent (use Events::QuitRequested)
- ResizeEvent (use Events::WindowResized)

=== Other Stuff
- Deprecation (will be removed in Rubygame 3.0):
- Rubygame::Mixer module and methods are deprecated.
- Rubygame::Mixer::Music class is deprecated.
Use Rubygame::Music class instead.

- NOTE: Run ruby with -w flag or set $_v = true to enable run-time
deprecation warnings.
== Rubygame 2.2.0
Release focus: Colors.
=== Features
- Add: Rubygame::Color module
- ColorRGB, ColorHSV, and ColorHSL classes.

- Automatic lookup of color names when a string or symbol
is passed for a color to Surface methods.

=== Improvements
- Rect#collide_rect? is now faster.
- Sprites::Group#collide_group can take a block; arguments are deprecated.
=== Other Stuff
- Build system correctly recompiles if source has changed.
- Build system option syntax has changed. See the README: Advanced Install.
- Build system will correctly exit with an error status if it can't compile;
fixes Rubygems trying to install even when compile failed.

- Fix: Sprites::Group#collide_group behaving incorrectly (again).
- Fix: Build system doesn't correctly handle quoted spaces in --cflags/--lflags.
(NOTE: Use CFLAGS/LDFLAGS environment variables now, instead.)
=== Known Issues

you must "rake clobber build" after a change.

that can be converted to an Array (with #to_ary), such as Ftor.
== Rubygame 2.0.0:
