Version 1.8 Released

I’ve just released version 1.8 of libavg. You can download it at the usual place.

This means that finally, all of the cool features that have been in the development version for a while are available in an easy-to-install package. The release includes a skinnable widget library, a unified event handling framework (see Cleaning up Messaging), and a much-improved App class by OXullo. Scotty added a very nice sample program called firebirds that showcases libavg development in a compact form, and Richy implemented a new logging framework. Rendering is much faster (see Speeding up Rendering), and I completely rewrote the video decoding subsystem (see Video Decoding using libav and ffmpeg). Lots of other things have been improved as well – see the NEWS file for details.

Lots of thanks to OXullo, Richy and Scotty for testing the release!
