SDL 2.0 Information & Support


Information Sources

Tip

Although there is some overlap between SDL version 1.2 and 2.0, the information in this wiki is specifically for SDL version 2.0. SDL 1.2 is deprecated and not recommended for new projects.

For help switching over from version 1.2 to 2.0 check out this Migration Guide.

Once you're using version 2.0 of the Simple DirectMedia Layer (SDL) API, there are a number of sources for basic information. Here are a few:
