Got my donation in, better support for the evil lower case i devices is something I would like if I ever get to the point I can publish a game. Out of curiousity, what is the plan for the system? Set it up in one of he developers houses and have remote access available for the various devs? Thanks again for the hard work!

We've just entered the stage of the last € 100!
Thank you all so far! :)

Yes, the device will be setup in my apartment, since I've got the fastest internet speed (see spoiler) and enough time to maintain it.
At first we'll be setting it up as build node for out continuous integration and provide access to at least all the SFML Team members. After everything is up and running, we'll most likely also be thinking about ways to give back to the community, however so far there are no plans, so I can't make any promises on how that might look like. ;)

And just as clicked "Post" I saw the donation balance jump up again.

We already reached our stretch goal! :)

I'm amazed and we're extremely thankful for anyone who donated!
We'll keep updating the bar up for the whole week. As Tank said everything from now on, will simply be saved and used for future projects.

I still don't know what to say. In just 2 days, we got something better than we initially planned. "Thank you" is all I can say. ;)

Oh wow, that was fast!

There is far more interest in SFML than I expected, even if I like it more than most alternatives.
I'm impressed, good job!
