LÖVE 11.1 released!

Post by slime » Sun Apr 15, 2018 7:10 pm

Following on the heels of LÖVE 11.0's release two weeks ago, version 11.1 is now out!

11.1 is a small – but important – bug fix release. It resolves a few issues introduced in 11.0 including love.graphics.setCanvas failing to work in many situations, stencils breaking on older phones, and t.console=true in love.conf causing errors on Windows when lovec.exe is used.

The full changelog is available on the wiki, and download links are on the front page as usual.

Guys this is awesome, seems to be running faster than 11.0?

Seriously well done all!

I'm having trouble getting 11.1 installed on my CentOS system (very similar to RHEL/Fedora). There's no official package for Love2D on CentOS, so I just set it up from the source, following the Fedora instructions on the build page. The build instructions rely on ./configure and make, but they're not present in the 11.1 source downloads. I also can't seem to run the included love file as an executable (it opens as a plain text file instead).

Can anyone help me sort this out? I'm a total Linux noob. :D

They are, I think you got a binary download instead.

You may need to make the file executable (either via the properties menu in your file browser, or using chmod on the terminal).

Thanks for the reply. I did check to make sure the file was executable, and it already was. It doesn't matter if I run it from the GUI or from Terminal, it still opens as plain text.

About the download, I may have gotten the wrong one. The files used to be named like love-11.0-linux-src.tar.gz, but now the only linux options are love-11.1-linux-i686.tar.gz (32-bit, I believe) or love-11.1-linux-x86_64.tar.gz (64-bit). The previous linux tarballs contained a root folder named after the branch, and that held a bunch of text files and the folders extra, platform, and src. The 11.1 linux download (32-bit or 64-bit) has a root folder called "dest" and that has the folders lib, usr, libstdc++ as well as what looks like a .desktop shortcut.

So, what should I be downloading instead?

*facepalm*

Yup, thanks zorg! It's somehow listed *after* the 10.0 one, so I guess I stopped reading there. My bad. :)

Incidentally, I discovered that running (from the Terminal) ./love works where love does not. The latter seems to make it look for a command or bash script, where the former tells it to open the file as an executable. Just in case that's helpful to anyone. :)

From the wiki:
In versions prior to 11.0, color component values were within the range of 0 to 255 instead of 0 to 1.
What was the motivation for changing RGBA ranges to [0..1]?
