Later on today, I’ll be sending out some updated SFML binaries for Windows. Not only that, there’s going to be a brand new script for installing SFML on Unix (in particular, Ubuntu/Linux Mint, but I’m sure a little modification will have it running elsewhere). If you want to be the first to get hold of all this, remember to subscribe by email if you haven’t yet. Otherwise, they’ll be added to the downloads page in a few days.
You’ve probably already heard, but there’s a big upcoming C++ conference from everyone’s favourite friendly software giant, Microsoft. Actual seats are, of course, all booked up. But you can watch online. If you can spare the time, watch as many as you can. It’s a great opportunity to learn the language from the big names of the industry, including Bjarne Stroustrup himself! And they’ll be available on demand, as well as live, so there’s no excuse to miss them. Have fun!
