@Laurent would it be possible to use some code similar to this in sfml for better resize event prossesing?

I don't see what SFML could do with this code.


Nothing without switching to a separate render thread, which would probably make it quite beginner-unfriendly... (although maybe if the messages are polled automatically and forwarded... hrmm...)

As long as the api stays the same, a hidden render thread could be added and beginner users would not notice. I am not sure if this is possible though. When I get a chance I will try to implement this.

SFML is too low-level, it doesn't control anything about rendering. Objects are rendered when the user calls window.Draw. I couldn't even implement a rendering queue to be executed later / in another thread.

And besides, it sounds a little bit overkill...

And inefficient. Better leave it as it is.
Suggestions about that crash issue are welcome though  :P
