My favorite tagline from Niels Bohr, which I also have chosen for our Jenkins build & test server? An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made, in a narrow field. The OpenJDK build and GlueGen iOS bring-up had its own little challenges, now I walked through another bunch… Continue reading JogAmp iOS Arm64 Port: First Visuals …

I have been distracted from completing the 2.4.0 JogAmp release last two weeks, but at least it is for a good reason.

Version 3.2.4

William Bittle // May 2, 2017 4:36:39 AM

This is a maintenance release to fix the issue where the a Joint removed from a World cannot be added back or to a different world due to an internal member not being cleared.


Version 3.2.3

William Bittle // Sep 4, 2016 8:41:14 PM

This release fixes issues with the getRadius(Vector2) method for the Slice, Capsule, Ellipse, and HalfEllipse shapes under local rotation and fixes the detect(AABB) method in the Sap broadphase.

This release is primarily for a new collision shape called Link. This shape extends the existing Segment shape and provides for smooth sliding across chains of Links. There were some minor fixes and code clean up as well.
