Any news about JSFML continuation ?
« on: February 18, 2016, 02:18:49 pm »
Dear All, I would like to ask for any news about continuation of support for JSFML, or any other SFML binding for Java.

I'm asking because, currently, I'm finishing a book (so far in Polish, but I hope I can provide also English version in future) that teach teenagers a basics of programming by creating games. So far I used the JSFML, but if it will be no longer developed I have to change a library.

I would be very grateful for any info.

...........................
PS: I know that developing SFML and its bindings is volunteer work, and the fact that effect of your work is appreciated and used is the main motivation. Therefore, let me tell, that I estimate that this book can bring 3-5k new users yearly to library that will be chosen (previous book sales is 1,7k in last 5 months). :P

Are you asking if someone else is picking it up or have you missed this thread?

So far nobody else has stepped forward.

Thank you for info. I would appreciate any news (or gossip ;) ) about Java bindings.

When there are news, you'll most certainly hear them here. If somebody has the motivation to develop JSFML further, he or she will most probably do that by self-initiative, not as a result of being asked for it.

Have you considered contributing to JSFML yourself? Even if you can't or don't want to maintain the project, already smaller contributions here and there (pull request style) could be very helpful. Maybe you'll find others who can assist you at this task.
