Lwjgl 3.3.0

Release LWJGL 3.3.0 · LWJGL/lwjgl3 (github.com)



Indeed! It should enable us to address issue 1528 and possibly some bugs as well.

Shall we switch to LWGJL 3.3.0 in JME 3.5?


I think so. On my personal projects I have been running the 3.3.0-SNAPSHOT for several months. It has been working great. I am just getting done updating the build settings to move them to the release version. I think it would be awesome if JME was updated to 3.3.0 final.


If we’re going to do it, then the sooner we start testing it, the better. I’ll submit a PR.


I edited “jme3-lwjgl3/build.gradle” and started a build. Compilation failed in “jme3-vr”:

The VR module used an outdated (very outdated) snapshot version of lwjgl iirc. It may take some work to get it to compile. But really it needs rewritten. Last time I used it I had to build almost all of my own bindings because its were insufficient, or not designed correctly.

EDIT: Looking at the jme-jr module, I guess it was using 3.2.3. For some reason I thought it was on an old snapshot.

EDIT 2: You probably did, but just to double check, you also changed the LWJGL version in the jme-vr build.gradle? I am getting my IDEA setup with jmonkeyengine again. I’m not sure why I always do this, but when ever I’m done working on something in jme I always leave my copy of the repo in some strange state that is hard to fix…

No, I didn’t. With that change, I still get the same compile-time error, though.

Probably should fix the build scripts so that lwjglVersion is only defined in one place.

EDIT: With the script fixed, I actually get a different error:

/home/sgold/Git/jmonkeyengine/jme3-vr/src/main/java/com/jme3/input/vr/lwjgl_openvr/LWJGLOpenVR.java:238: error: cannot find symbol
  symbol:   method VRSystem_ResetSeatedZeroPose()
  location: class org.lwjgl.openvr.VRSystem

EDIT 2: I wonder if this has to do with LWJGL upgrading OpenVR to 1.16.8 (up from 1.6.10).

Probably. Im driving today, but when I stop tonight I can take a look at getting it to compile again.

@sgold I opened a PR for 3.3.0 support.
