The ABLIT library provides a BltBitMap() compatible function 
call which adds the missing alpha channel and blend support 
to AmigaOS (4.0). It also contains some nice addons to 
integrate SDL_Surfaces into AmigaOS.

New since release version 0.4 is full OpenGL 1.3 support thru Mesa4.0.4.
This is an OpenGL preview release!

See the included readme for more information.

Available interfaces:

ablit/ablit.h:

    - BltAlphaBitMap()
    - BltAlphaBitMapRastPort() (v0.3)
    - WriteAlphaPixelArray() (v0.3)
    - ExtractMask() (v0.3)
    - InjectMask()  (v0.3)

ablit/ablit_SDL.h:

    - SDL_BlitAlphaSurfaceBitMap()
    - SDL_BlitAlphaBitMapSurface()
    - SDL_BlitAlphaSurface()
    - SDL_BlitAlphaBitMapRastPort() (v0.3)

ablit/ablit_utils.h:

    - ABU_InitVideo() (supports windowed and fullscreen modes now)
    - ABU_CloseVideo()
    - plus some more (see header)

ablit/gl.h:
ablit/glext.h:
ablit/glu.h:

    - full OpenGL 1.3 API


For more information check the header files and examples. 
A complete documentation will follow.

History:

v0.4b: 11/15/2006
    - Service release. Stacksize fixed for demos

v0.4: 11/14/2006
    - Full OpenGL1.3 (Mesa4.0.4) implementation (gl and glu)
    - Shared library. The old link library is obsolete and not available any
more.
      A link library wrapper will be available at one point.
    - Full AmigaInput support thru the ABU framework
    - Simplified Event Handling thru ABU (for both AIN and Intuition events).
    - Easy to use C++ template framework.

v0.3: 11/21/2005
    - added BltAlphaBitMapRastPort()
    - added SDL_BlitAlphaSurfaceRastPort()
    - added WriteAlphaPixelArray() 
      (cgx compatible call with alpha channel support)
    - added ExtractAlphaMask() - untested 
      (create an 8bit bitmap out of alpha layer)
    - added InjectAlphaMask() - untested 
      (inject an 8bit alpha mask into a 32bit bitmap)
    - changed all calls to match AmigaOS camel case naming convention 
      (e.g. all "Bitmap" are now "BitMap")
    - added ablit_util ABU_InitVideo can now handle window or 
      full screen mode.
    - added some more direct ARGB32 target blits 
      (only with 32 bit source format for now, 16/24 bit is missing).

v0.2: 11/05/2005
    - removed  tags from link library. 
      Doesn't make sence in a link lib
    - fixed alignment exceptions (hope I got them all now), 
      16 bit source blits should work again
    - cleaned up code into more generic patterns. Adding a color 
      format should only be a matter of changeing some macro 
      and no code changes  any more -> easier maintenance.
    - fixed clipping bugs in 16/32 bit formats
    - removed C++ dependencies (libstdc++.a)
    - lib is now independent from clib2 or newlib. 
      Should run with both now. (libalib.a & libalib_utils.a)
      (I need a clib2 version of freetype to test SDL_ttf, though)
    - restructured code for new functionality yet to come
    - added some free ttf fonts for the demo 
      (see it's notes inside the fonts folder)

v0.1: 10/31/2005
    - Forgot a debug message, slowed everything down
    - added  in ablit and ablit_utils lib

v0.0: 10/31/2005
    - First OS4Depot Release
