Version 1.0.3 of Flint released

Posted on

This version adds some minor enhancements

  • KeyDownCounter - this new meta-counter causes an associated counter to only emit particles if a particular key is down.
  • KeyDownAction - this new meta-action causes an associated action to only occur if a particular key is down.
  • ZonedAction - this new meta-action causes an associated action to only affect particles that are within a particular zone.
  • LinearReactangleZone - this new Zone is like the RectangleZone but the getLocation method returns a sequential set of locations within the zone rather than a random point.
  • Palette maps - the Bitmap Emitter can now use a palette map to alter the color of the particles.
  • removedFromEmitter() - this new method has been added to the Action, Initializer and Activity classes and is called when the behaviour is removed from the emitter.
  • Protected methods - a number of methods and properties have been changed from private to protected, while others have been exposed via getter/setters.
  • Optimizations - some general speed optimizations have been added to the library. These don't affect the API.
