  • new jitter-config.txt. can be placed anywhere in search path and contain messages to jitter (e.g. jitter nosplash 1; jitter altivec 0;). will be loaded when jitter is first initialized.
  • new message to jitter nosplash <int>
  • new message to jitter postversion
  • jit.gl.text2d+jit.gl.videoplane fixes to make these objects compatible
  • jit.gl.text2d attribute stack underflow fixes
  • jit.gl.render new ortho 2 mode for 2d style orthographic projection that doesn’t use lens angle, as opposed to 3d style orthographic mode which does use lens angle(ortho 1). solves problems with nudging of lens angle or object scaling when trying to just fit objects exactly in the viewport.

  • jit.uldl fixed upload issues on windows
  • jit.window fixes for crashes when invisible. it also records most state flags (border, floating, doublebuffer etc.), but not fullscreen.
  • jit.window attempted fix for “black flicker” problem on windows. if this problem persists, one thing to try would be turning off HW acelleration in the QT preferences panel of QTPlayer to see if the flicker is eliminated
  • jit.window fix for closebox on while floating (Win XP)
