Version 0.25.0.0 - 2018.06.04
----------------------------------
+ added Bullet Physics support via a new plugin and the gh_bullet3 library
  for Lua and Python. The Bullet Physics plugin is available on all platforms.
+ added create_cylinder_xyz() to gh_mesh lib (lua, python).
+ added list_clipping_begin() and list_clipping_end() to gh_imgui lib (lua, python).
  Perfect to handle very very large lists.
+ [WINDOWS] added minimal joystick support with 4 new functions in gh_input lib:
  joystick_get_num_supported(), joystick_get_status(), joystick_get_button_state()
  and joystick_get_position().
+ added mouse_set_position() to gh_input for all platforms.
! updated gh_input.mouse_show_cursor(): now available on all platforms.
+ added sound_get_open_state() and sound_spectrum_read_v2() to gh_audio lib (lua, python).
+ added collision contact reporting in the PhysX plugin (actor_get_contact_info() and
  scene_reset_all_contacts() in gh_physx3).
+ added create_scene_broadphase_sap(), create_scene_broadphase_mbp(),
  create_scene_broadphase_gpu(), actor_set_stabilization_threshold(),
  actor_set_3d_object(), scene_sync_3d_objects(), actor_clear_forces(),
  actor_get_angular_velocity(), actor_get_angular_speed2(), actor_get_linear_velocity()
  and actor_get_linear_speed2() to gh_physx3 lib.
! added new parameter to actor_add_force() and actor_add_force_at_position()
  of gh_physx3 lib.
! improved the PhysX 3 plugin loading speed on Windows. There was a WMI routine
  that slowed down the plugin initialization by trying to read some CPU data.
+ added file_exif_to_log(), file_exif_get_num_properties(), and file_exif_get_property()
  to gh_imagemagick lib (lua, python).
! updated ImGui / gh_imgui lib with latest version 1.62 WIP.
+ added mouse_get_position_v2() and mouse_set_position() to gh_input lib (lua, python).
- disabled imgui_tabs functions (broken with latest ImGui 1.62).
+ [TINKER BOARD / RASPBERRY PI] added trilinear filtering for OpenGL ES renderer.
* [LINUX] fixed a bug in the keyboard management (keycodes were treated as 8-bit
  while they are 16-bit in X11). Some keys like S or RIGHT arrow were the same key
  for GeeXLab.
* fixed a crash in gh_sqlite3.db_column_get_text() in the Python plugin.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Microsoft to acquire GitHub for $7.5 billion

REDMOND, Wash. — June 4, 2018 — Microsoft Corp. on Monday announced it has reached an agreement to acquire GitHub, the world’s leading software development platform where more than 28 million developers learn, share and collaborate to create the future. Together, the two companies will empower developers to achieve more at every stage of the development lifecycle, accelerate enterprise use of GitHub, and bring Microsoft’s developer tools and services to new audiences.

“Microsoft is a developer-first company, and by joining forces with GitHub we strengthen our commitment to developer freedom, openness and innovation,” said Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft. “We recognize the community responsibility we take on with this agreement and will do our best work to empower every developer to build, innovate and solve the world’s most pressing challenges.”

Under the terms of the agreement, Microsoft will acquire GitHub for $7.5 billion in Microsoft stock. Subject to customary closing conditions and completion of regulatory review, the acquisition is expected to close by the end of the calendar year.

GitHub will retain its developer-first ethos and will operate independently to provide an open platform for all developers in all industries. Developers will continue to be able to use the programming languages, tools and operating systems of their choice for their projects — and will still be able to deploy their code to any operating system, any cloud and any device.

Microsoft Corporate Vice President Nat Friedman, founder of Xamarin and an open source veteran, will assume the role of GitHub CEO. GitHub’s current CEO, Chris Wanstrath, will become a Microsoft technical fellow, reporting to Executive Vice President Scott Guthrie, to work on strategic software initiatives.

“I’m extremely proud of what GitHub and our community have accomplished over the past decade, and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead. The future of software development is bright, and I’m thrilled to be joining forces with Microsoft to help make it a reality,” Wanstrath said. “Their focus on developers lines up perfectly with our own, and their scale, tools and global cloud will play a huge role in making GitHub even more valuable for developers everywhere.”

Today, every company is becoming a software company and developers are at the center of digital transformation; they drive business processes and functions across organizations from customer service and HR to marketing and IT. And the choices these developers make will increasingly determine value creation and growth across every industry. GitHub is home for modern developers and the world’s most popular destination for open source projects and software innovation. The platform hosts a growing network of developers in nearly every country representing more than 1.5 million companies across healthcare, manufacturing, technology, financial services, retail and more.
