damn! thats a major kick to my workflow! wheres this separate module???
basically what i use animation for is to cut up a tile map and use animation:seek() to index a table. any pointers on how this would be done in 0.6.0? otherwise i think all the new stuffs great!x

Potato needs a background color on the main section, fyi (as a web dev, I set my default background color to yellow - not white - so I can see where it's neglected). Just a 'lil body { background: #FFFFFF; } would be nice! :P

Running Windows 7 here and the November 12th build of Love, File:write writes to "c:\users\(username)\Love" rather than the "%appdata%\Love" directory, is that intended?

Also, when getting the save directory using love.filesystem.getSaveDirectory( ), the output looks like this:

"c:\Users\(Username)\/LOVE/test"

Notice the backward and forward slashes right next to each other. Outputting seems to work, so it doesn't seem to be causing any issues, it just looks a bit unusual.

Finally, when outputting a newline using "\n" it can cause issues in the Windows default text editor Notepad (it ignores the newline and just causes the text to run together). This is due to the conflicting standards of Unix vs. Windows (Windows looks for CR+LF characters to specify a newline or "\r\n" in Love). Though most text editors these days can compensate for it (including WordPad, which is built into Windows), a note in the documentation might be in order to clear up confusion with people trying to write cross platform compatible output.

0.6 is looking great, thanks to the devs!

Simtex: hopefully fixed the issues you mentioned in 20387c3a3d7c, thanks for pointing them out.

In other news, Mac OSX builds should be up and running again.

I'd love to contribute, but pretty much all I know about 0.6.0 is from potato or from practice, and the second is a near-complete subset of the former.
