- Hiero updated to v5, now with FreeType support and other new features!
- GlyphLayout now allocates much, much less memory when processing long text that wraps.
- Added LWJGL 3 backend, see for more info.
- Added Graphics#getBackBufferWidth and Graphics#getBackBufferHeight for HDPI handling
- API Change: Added HdpiUtils. Instead of calling GL20#glViewport and GL20#glScissor yourself
please use HdpiUtils instead. It will ensure that you handle HDPI monitors correctly when
using those OpenGL functions. On HDPI monitors, the size reported by
getWidth/getHeight is in logical coordinates as dictated by the operating system, usually half
the HDPI resolution. The OpenGL drawing surface works in backbuffer coordinates at the full
HDPI resolution. If you pass logical coordinates to glViewport and glScissor, you only
affect a quarter of the real backbuffer size. Use HdpiUtils instead, it will do the right thing, while letting you continue to work in logical (aka returned by coordinates.
- API Change: Graphis#getDesktopDisplayMode() has been renamed to Graphics#getDisplayMode() and
returns the current display mode of the monitor the window is shown on (primary monitor on
all backends except LWJGL3, which supports real multi-monitor setups).
- API Change: Graphics#getDisplayModes() return the display modes of the monitor the monitor
the window is shown on (primary monitor on all backends except LWJGL3 which supports real
multi-monitor setups).
- API Change: Graphics#setDisplayMode(DisplayMode) has been renamed to
Graphics#setFullscreenMode(). If the window is in windowed mode, it will be switched
to fullscreen mode on the monitor from which the DisplayMode stems from.
- API Change: Graphics#setDisplayMode(int, int, boolean) has been renamed to
Graphics#setWindowedMode(int, int). This will NOT allow you to switch to fullscreen anymore,
use Graphics#setFullscreenMode() instead. If the window is in fullscreen mode, it will be
switched to windowed mode on the monitor the window was in fullscreen mode on.
- API Addition: Graphics#Monitor, represents a monitor connected to the machine the app is
running on. A monitor is defined by a name and it's position relative to other connected
monitors. All backends except the LWJGL3 backend will report only the primary monitor
- API Addition: Graphics#getPrimaryMonitor() returns the primary monitor you usually want
to work with.
- API Addition: Graphics#getMonitor() returns the monitor your app's window is shown on,
which may not be the primary monitor in >= 2 monitor systems. All backends except the
LWJGL3 backend will report only the primary monitor.
- API Addition: Graphics#getMonitors() returns all monitors connected to the system. All
backends except the LWJGL3 backend will only report the primary monitor.
- API Addition: Graphics#getDisplayMode(Monitor) returns the display mode of the monitor
the app's window is shown on. All backends except the LWJGL3 backend will report the
primary monitor display mode instead of the actual monitor's display mode. Not a problem
as all other backends run on systems with only a single monitor so far (primary monitor).
- Added option to include credentials on cross-origin http requests (used only for GWT backend).
- Added option to specify crossorigin attribute when loading images with AssetDownloader (GWT), see #3216.
- API Change: removed Sound#setPriority, this was only implemented for the Android backend. However, Android itself never honored priority settings.
- API Change: cursor API has been cleaned up. To create a custom cursor, call Graphics#newCursor(), to set the custom cursor call Graphics#setCursor(), to set a system cursor call Graphics#setSystemCursor(). The Cursor#setSystemCursor method has been removed as that was not the
right place. Note that cursors only work on the LWJGL, LWJGL3 and GWT backends. Note that system cursors only fully work on LWJGL3 as the other two backends lack a means to set a specific system cursor. These backends fall back to displaying an arrow cursor when setting any system cursor.
- API Addition: Added Lwjgl3WindowListener, allows you to hook into per-window iconficiation, focus and close events. Also allows you to prevent closing the window when a close event arrives.
- Added AndroidAudio#newMusic(FileDescriptor) to allow loading music from a file descriptor, see #2970
- Added GLOnlyTextureData, which is now the default for FrameBuffer and FrameBufferCubemap, see #3539
- Added rotationChanged() for Actor class, called when rotation changes, see
- Fixed crash on MacOS when enumerating connected gamepads.

- changed Scene2D Group#clear(), see
- changed the build system, natives are now fetched from the build server, see
- freetype extension supported on iOS, see
- changed ShapeRenderer API, see
- changed Actions.add to addAction, changed parameter order, and added removeAction, addListener, removeListener
- Box2d joints now allow for user data
- Changes to Intersector, Circle, Rectangle and BoundingBox for consistency in #overlap, #intersect and #contains methods, see
- Removed LwjglApplicationConfiguration CPU sync. Added foreground and background target framerate.
- scene2d, no longer use getters/setters internally for Actor x, y, width, height, scalex, scaley and rotation.
- Array, detect nested iterator usage and throw exception.
- Added getVolume to Music class and Android, IOS and GWT backends
- 1381, fixed JSON parsing of longs. In addition to Float, it now parses Long if no decimal point is found.
- Changed Array constructors that took an array to have offset and count
- scene2d, Actor parentToLocalCoordinates and localToParentCoordinates refactoring, see
- scene2d, Action#setActor no longer calls reset if the Action has no pool. This allows non-pooled actions to be add and removed from actors, restarted, and reused.
- ScrollBar#setForceOverscroll renamed to setForceScroll, as it affects more than just overscroll.
- ArrayMap#addAll renamed to putAll to match the other maps.
- Added ObjectSet and IntSet.
- Added completion listener to Music.
- Added Music#setPan.
- Sound#play and Sound#loop on Android now return -1 on failure, to match other backends.
- DelegateAction subclasses need to implement delegate() instead of act().
- Added pause and resume methods to Sound.
- Changed AssetErrorListener#error to have AssetDescriptor to enable access to parameters of failed asset.
- Changed SelectBoxStyle to have ScrollPaneStyle and ListStyle for fully customizing the drop down list.
- AssetLoader now takes a FileHandle that is the resolved file name. The AssetLoader no longer has to resolve the file name, so we can prevent it from being resolved twice.
- Rewrote EarClippingTriangulator to not allocate (no more Vector2s).
- Added ParticleEffectLoader to make AssetManager load ParticleEffects
- Added GeometryUtils, more Intersector functions, DelaunayTriangulator, ConvexHull.
- Added getBoundingBox to ParticleEffect
- EarClippingTriangulator changed to return triangle indices.
- PolygonSpriteBatch and friends refactored to use triangle indices.
- Added add(T, float), remove(int), remove(T) and clear() methods to BinaryHeap
- Bitmap Font changes:
- FreeTypeFontGenerator allows you to specify the PixmapPacker now, to create an atlas with many different fonts (see FreeTypePackTest)
- BitmapFont, BitmapFontCache and FreeTypeFontGenerator now support fonts with multiple texture pages. (see BitmapFontTest and FreeTypePackTest)
- BitmapFontData.imagePath and getImagePath() is depreacted, use imagePaths[] and getImagePath(int) instead
- Added two BitmapFont constructors for convenience; no need to specify flip boolean
- Added getCache() to BitmapFont, for expert users who wish to use the BitmapFontCache (see BitmapFontTest)
- FreeTypeFontGenerator now includes setMaxTextureSize and getMaxTextureSize to cap the generated glyph atlas size (default 1024)
- added render-hooks beginRender() and endRender() to BatchTiledMapRenderer
- Added panStop to GestureListener interface.
- ScissorStack#calculateScissors changed to take viewport, enabling it to work with glViewport.
- Added Bits#getAndClear, Bits#getAndSet and Bits#containsAll
- Added setX and setY to TextureAtlas.AtlasSprite so it matches expected behavior
