I just happened to know SFML via GameDev.net a few minutes ago.

Although I haven't even tried it, it looks really interesting to me!

I am downloading it. Will give it a try tomorrow.

Welcome to the SFML forums ;)

I hope you'll enjoy SFML, let us know what you think about it. It is even more important as it is the first public release.

I come from GameDev.net too.

I really like everything I've read about SFML so far.

I'll give it a try. ;)

PS: I really love the documentation you have and the tutorials - most projects don't have that.

It's rather amazing the level of activity that comes with a single news post off gamedev -- I came here from their referral as well.

The documentation and website infrastructure displays a surprising level of polish -- it looks off to a good start.  Contrast this with SDL's robust but very sparsely documentation and you've done the right things.   I'm going through the code now -- initial impressions are pretty neat.  The library appears to have covered the bases with the same scope as Allegro and SDL.  I am particularly impressed that the portable platform code is already working.

I found it on GameDev too, couldn't click the link fast enough :-p

It's a shame that it's not compatible with 64-bit Linux (had fun installing a 32-bit with no CD-RW drive on my current machine) but my experience of SFML so far has been nothing short of fantastic, well worth the set-up time I went through.

It should be (although I've never tested it), just have to make 64-bits builds of SFML and release them.
