Version 0.18.6b released

Post by coderJeff »

This is a maintenance release for the 0.18 branch. Unfortunately, serious bugs in the Win32 GFX drivers still weren't completely solved in the 0.18.5 maintenance release.

The v0.18.6b changelog is available here (link)

Most important changes:

Windows:
- Only libfbgfx.a has changed in this release and a separate download just for this library is available.
- Fixed the GFX clean-up problems which fixed the following problems reported by users:
- Unable to change refresh rate after first SCREEN[RES] call
- Unable to query SCREENLIST after two SCREEN calls
- Problems switching between fullscreen and windowed modes

Linux:
- The libraries libfb.a, libfbmt.a, and libfbgfx.a do not have debug information in this release as they did in the 0.18.5 release.
- Otherwise, no changes.

DOS:
- No changes.
