GeeXLab 0.29.13 released for Windows, Linux, macOS and Raspberry Pi

GeeXLab: 3D programming and prototyping for Windows, Linux, macOS, RaspberryPi


1 – Release Notes

Today I uploaded a new version of GeeXLab for all platforms. Windows is my main dev platform so new features are always added in the Windows version first. But time to time, it’s important to build and release for all platforms: the code is compiled on different compilers (VS2017, Xcode 11.3.1, gcc/g++) and all features and changes in Lua / Python libs are available everywhere.

That said, I added the correct support of UTF8 characters in gh_font (you have to use gh_font.draw_wtext_2d(…), same thing for the libfont in Lua/Python: libfont_wprint(…)). I also fixed the FFmpeg plugin on macOS (that didn’t work because of wrong install_names! macOS is the worst platform when it comes to dynamic libs – it’s a real effort to maintain GeeXLab on that OS). And I added the imGuIZMO.quat support (added in GeeXLab 0.29.6 for Windows) on Linux, Raspberry Pi and macOS.

And before I forget, there is now a page for the PRO version of GeeXLab.
