Improvements

  • MemoryStack: Increased default stack size to 64kb (up from 32kb)
  • Shared library loading can now utilize a ClassLoader specified by the caller. (#277)
  • Significantly reduced DEBUG_MEMORY_ALLOCATOR and DEBUG_STACK overhead in Java 9 using the new StackWalker API.
  • Migrated windows builds to appveyor and updated to Visual Studio 2017 (up from 2015)
  • EGL: The core API now includes javadoc links to the Khronos references pages
  • OpenGL ES: The core API now includes javadoc links to the Khronos references pages

Fixes

  • Assimp: Struct member nullability fixes
  • Linux: Removed dependencies to newer GLIBC versions.
  • LibOVR: Fixed layout of the ovrInputState struct.
  • OpenAL: Removed buffer auto-sizing from alcCaptureSamples. The number of samples must now be specified explicitly, similar to alcRenderSamplesSOFT.
  • Vulkan: Function addresses are now retrieved only once, using the optimal method for each function type.
    • This avoids warnings on pedantic validation layers.
  • Fixed callback invocation bugs on 32-bit architectures.
  • Fixed various javadoc formatting issues (#308)

Breaking Changes

  • Mapped more integer parameters and return values to Java boolean, that were missed while working on #181.
    • Xlib's Bool
    • OpenCL's cl_bool
    • DynCall's DCbool
  • Moved JNI global reference functions from MemoryUtil to the generated org.lwjgl.system.jni.JNINativeInterface.
  • The Vulkan capabilities have been split into two classes: VKCapabilitiesInstance and VKCapabilitiesDevice.
    • Flags for core Vulkan versions exist in both classes.
    • Flags for instance extensions exist only in VKCapabilitiesInstance.
    • Flags for device extensions exist only in VKCapabilitiesDevice.
    • Functions that dispatch on VkInstance or VkPhysicalDevice exist only in VKCapabilitiesInstance.
    • Functions that dispatch on VkDevice and device-derived handles exist only in VKCapabilitiesDevice.
    • Bootstrapping functions can be retrieved with VK.getFunctionProvider().
