Yes, old forum and wiki are gone.

Some news for the near future:
- SFML 2.1 will be released as quickly as possible and be a bug fix release
- SFML 2.2 should add support for iOS, I'm already working on it

I'm sure there is a huge bunch of people eager to assist you in making SFML work on Android (and other platforms)! :)

I already started porting SFML to Android (and Raspberry Pi btw) and I'm having the entire framework working except the network module which hasn't yet been ported. https://github.com/Sonkun/esfml (branch Android)

As for SFML 2.2, I think you should focus on adding support for OpenGL ES 1.1 first, as it doesn't take much effort (OpenGL ES 1.1 being close to OpenGL 2.x).

A iOS port needs OpenGL ES 1.x supported and won't be possible without redesigning the entire window module. In my humble opinion, you should keep this huge API break for SFML3.0 and concentrate on adding interesting features such a video module, signal&slot to the system module, etc. and all this stuff  without breaking the API.

Interested in using SFML with Python ? Try out its Python binding!

I'm kinda missing a feature list. If you send a new user to the website and ask him to answer the question "What is SFML?" he won't be able to properly answer it, since he can't get any information on what SFML really is. ;)

You also might want to update the release thread, but I guess you haven't forgotten that and you're still compiling the huge, huge change log. ;D

I just got SFML 2.0 and, after spending about an hour trying to figure out all the problems* I was having making it work and finally getting it to work, I am already liking how much better it is over v1.6.

Many thanks for all the time you've put into this. Cheers!

* Problems: It turns out, if you have ANY of the old v1.6 files in your include and library directories (I was using Visual Studio 2010 Express' VC/include and VC/lib folders), you've gotta clear them ALL out and replace them with the new files. Took me a while to figure that one out. And, apparently, I am using the 32bit version of VS2010 and thought I had been using the 64bit version, so I got the 64bit v2.0 and had linker errors. So, looks like you gotta know what bit compiler you're using, too. ;)

tl;dr -- Solutions: v1.6 include and lib files must be replaced with v2.0 files; 32bit compiler != 64bit SFML v2.0
