* Changed love.graphics.print and friends to ignore carriage returns.
+
** [[love.graphics.setColor]], [[love.graphics.getColor]], [[love.graphics.setBackgroundColor]], and [[love.graphics.getBackgroundColor]].
* Changed the 'multiply' blend mode to error if not used with the 'premultiplied' blend alpha mode, since the formula only works with that anyway.
+
** [[SpriteBatch:setColor]] and [[SpriteBatch:getColor]].
* Changed the audio playback APIs drastically.
+
** [[ParticleSystem:setColors]] and [[ParticleSystem:getColors]].
* Updated Source:seek to work if the Source isn't playing.

* Updated Canvas:newImageData to return an ImageData with a format that matches the Canvas' as closely as possible.
+
** [[ImageData:setPixel]], [[ImageData:getPixel]], and [[ImageData:mapPixel]].
* Updated the 'vsync' field of love.window.setMode and t.window in love.conf. It's now an integer with 0 disabling vsync.
+
* Changed high-dpi functionality to require much less code (often none at all) for things to appear at the correct sizes and positions.
 +
* Changed [[love.graphics.print]] and friends to ignore carriage returns.
 +
* Changed the 'multiply' [[BlendMode]] to error if not used with the 'premultiplied' [[BlendAlphaMode]], since the formula only works with that anyway.

 +
* Changed [[Mesh:setDrawRange]] to take 'start' and 'count' parameters instead of 'min' and 'max'.
 +

 +

 +
* Updated [[love.graphics.circle]], [[love.graphics.ellipse]], [[love.graphics.arc]], and [[love.graphics.rectangle]] to take transformation scale into account when determining the number of segments to use.
 +
* Updated [[Font]] glyph generation to improve antialiasing.
 +
* Updated [[Canvas:newImageData]] to return an [[ImageData]] with a format that matches the [[Canvas]]' as closely as possible.
 +
* Updated [[love.graphics.newImage]] to treat file names ending with "@2x", "@3x", etc. as a pixel density scale factor if none is explicitly supplied.
 +
* Updated [[socket|luasocket]] to version 3.0rc1.
 +
 
 +
 
 +
