@afxgroup

Well done!
I've repeated the benchmarks that revealed a certain permormance drop a while ago (you should remember) and the results are that this version fixes entirely also that problem (for completeness, I'm referring to just blitting in system memory blitting by means of the static library)

It should be called Slow Directmedia Layer...

No fault against afxgroup, I appreciate the port very much, just SDL itself is slow and bloated.

SDL isn't slow. Some things that use SDL are slow, but thats not SDL's fault.

Bloated? In what way?

I've some problem with this new release. I replaced it with the old one but now games as Aquaria or Battle of Wesnot have some graphical error.

Where can I find the previous version?

@kyle
Can you show a screenshot with these graphical errors ? (if it SDL related, it will be fixed)

If this was available for OS3.9 I would likely do a port of uBee512 to the Amiga.
Since it isn't, I won't
