2012 is now nearly over and to celebrate this, I decided to release a new version of the AmiDARK 2D Engine.

This new release allors the MorphOS version to be "up to date" again with the latest changes made to the engine.
Now both AmigaOS4 & MorphOS version are uptodate to 0.7.
Concerning request for an AROS version. Some needed library still missing in AROS SDK. When these libraries will be available in various AROS versions SDK, I will try to adapt the AmiDARK Engine to these AROS build.

Many changes were made between release 0.6r2. Especially concerning hidden BITMAP that can now allow to precalculate SPRITES, IMAGES & TEXTURES.
