      • 64-bit: ARMv8/AArch64 architecture. Maven classifier: linux-arm64
    • ๐Ÿ Windows: There is now a separate native JAR file per architecture.
      • The default contains x64 shared libraries only. Maven classifier: windows
      • lwjgl-natives-windows-x86.jar contains x86 shared libraries only. Maven classifier: windows-x86
      • The 32 suffix has been dropped from x86 shared library names.
    • ๐Ÿ Windows: Shared libraries are now built with Visual Studio 2019 (up from 2017)
    • Maven: LWJGL artifacts now include a Bill of Materials (lwjgl-bom). (#481)
    • ๐Ÿ”จ Refactored the layout of native JAR files.
      • Shared libraries have been moved from the root to a <platform>/<arch>/<module>/ subfolder.
      • <platform>: one of linux, macos, windows.
      • <arch>: one of x64, x86, arm64, arm32.
      • <module>: the corresponding Java module name as a package hierarchy.
      • Example: in lwjgl-glfw-natives-linux.jar is under the linux/x64/org/lwjgl/glfw folder.
      • The new layout allows multiple native JAR files to be combined for custom deployment.
      • Custom (or the old) layout may be used with newly exposed Configuration options.
    • Core: Added enum Platform.Architecture and Platform.getArchitecture() API.
    • Core: Added relative & absolute apply(Consumer<T>) methods to StructBuffer<T>.
    • Core: Added Consumer<T> setters to structs with nested arrays of structs.

      • Windows: Performance issues are eliminated, but sparse database mappings & incremental file growth are not supported anymore.
    • ๐Ÿ›  OpenGL: Fixed signatures of glGetnUniformiv and glGetnUniformuiv.
    ๐Ÿ’ฅ Breaking Changes
    (B): binary incompatible change
    (S): source incompatible change

    • ๐Ÿ”– Versioned classes in bindings now form inheritance hierarchies.
      • Applicable to the following versioned classes: AL, ALC, CL, EGL, GL, GLES, GLX, VK
      • For example, the GL30 class now extends the GL21 class, GL21 extends GL20 and so on.
      • With this change, importing a versioned class allows all symbols up to that version to be resolved. Earlier versions do not need to be imported separately.
    • perf(core): memGetAddress/memPutAddress are now an order of magnitude faster on 32-bit JVMs.
    • โšก๏ธ perf(core): Optimized pointer arithmetic by helping the JVM identify unsigned integers.
    • perf(core): The new java.util.Objects index check intrinsics are used on Java 9.
    • perf(core): MemoryUtil string decoding methods are now faster on both Java 8 and 9+.
      • The Java 9 implementations are tuned for compact strings (JEP 254).
    • perf(generator): Function pointers in capabilities classes are not sorted by name anymore.
      • This makes it more likely that for functions that are commonly used together, their respective pointers
        will be closer in memory, avoiding unnecessary cache misses.
    • Generator: org.lwjgl.system.JNI now includes signatures for known callback functions.
      • Can be used for callback function delegation.
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Generator: Added support for custom methods in struct classes.
    • Generator: Added fluent setters for nested structs.

    • ๐Ÿ“„ docs(core): Improved PointerBuffer javadoc.
    • ๐Ÿ“„ docs: The LWJGL javadoc is now generated with JDK 10.
    • Core: MemoryUtil methods now replace requests for zero-size allocations with non-zero-size allocations.
      • A zero-size allocation now always returns a non-NULL pointer or throws an OOME. This is consistent with ByteBuffer.allocateDirect and avoids the undefined behavior of native allocators.
      • The returned buffer has a capacity of zero, regardless of the actual allocation size.
    • Core MemoryUtil.memRealloc is not @Nullable anymore, will either succeed or throw an OOME, like memAlloc/memCalloc.
    • Core: It is now possible to create a MemoryStack backed by externally managed memory.
    • ๐Ÿ”ง Core: The debug allocator now also tracks internal allocations of shared libraries that have been configured to use the LWJGL memory allocator.
      • This enables monitoring/debugging allocations inside shared libraries. Internal resources that are never released are now reported on shutdown.
      • Enabled by default when Configuration.DEBUG_MEMORY_ALLOCATOR is enabled.
      • May be disabled with Configuration.DEBUG_MEMORY_ALLOCATOR_INTERNAL.set(false).
    • LMDB: The LWJGL memory allocator is now used for internal allocations.
    • NanoVG/NanoSVG: The LWJGL memory allocator is now used for internal allocations.
    • OpenGL/GLES: Calling an unavailable function triggers a JNI FatalError instead of an arbitrary segfault.
      • Avoids the intimidating crash log and writes a clean stack trace to stderr.
    ๐Ÿ›  Fixes
    • ๐Ÿ›  Generator: Fixed nullability of macro bindings.
    • ๐Ÿ›  Generator: Fixed location of generated static blocks
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Core: Struct buffer malloc/calloc methods now support zero capacity, instead of throwing a NPE.
    • ๐ŸŽ macOS: Fixed version number detection in .dylib name mapping
    • ๐Ÿ›  Nullability fixes in:
      • Assimp
      • CGL
      • Yoga
      • Parameters of struct multi-setter methods
    • OpenCL: Fixed CL_DEVICE_PREFERRED_VECTOR_WIDTH_INT constant name.
    • OpenCL: Dropped unnecessary clSetKernalArg3<t> overloads.
    • ๐Ÿ†“ OpenGL/GLES: The thread-local-free function pointer lookups do not depend on JVMTI anymore.
    • stb: Fixed type of stbi_write_jpg function's data parameter.
    ๐Ÿ’ฅ Breaking Changes
    • Core: MemoryUtil.MemoryAllocationReport now also returns the address of the memory allocation.
    • NanoVG: Parameters windowWidth/windowHeight of the nvgBeginFrame function changed to float.
    Known Issues
    • vma: The native library is not initialized automatically.
      • Workaround: call Class.forName("org.lwjgl.util.vma.LibVma") before using the VMA bindings.
    • vma: KHR_get_memory_requirements2 function addresses in VmaVulkanFunctions are not optional.
      • Workaround: Enable the KHR_get_memory_requirements2 extension, or set the equivalent function addresses from Vulkan 1.1.

    ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improvements
    • โž• Added JSR-305 nullability annotations to the core and all bindings. (#344)
      • Enables static analysis tools (FindBugs, IDEs) to detect accesses that could cause NullPointerException. Eliminating those improves the quality of LWJGL applications.
      • Enables better interopation with JVM-based languages that feature built-in null-safety. For example, see Kotlin's JSR-305 support.
    • โž• Added Configuration setting to disable function lookup checks.
    • lmdb: Databases are now binary compatible across 32 & 64-bit architectures. (#364)
      • MDB_VL32 is enabled on 32-bit builds.
    • ๐Ÿ‘ par_shapes: Patched to support 32-bit indices and extremely dense meshes.
    • stb_truetype: Exposed members of internal structures for advanced glyph packing customization. (#358)
    • ๐Ÿ‘ Tootle: Now supports the Direct3D rasterizer for overdraw optimization.
    ๐Ÿ›  Fixes
    • JPMS: A natives module now requires transitive the corresponding Java module, instead of the opposite. (#334)
      • Enables loading shared libraries from non-modular paths/JARs.
    • ๐Ÿšš JPMS: module-info files have been moved under META-INF/version/9/ (#334)
      • All LWJGL artifacts are now multi-release JAR files to avoid trouble with older tools that are not compatible with Java 9.
    • JPMS: Added appropriate requires static declarations to satisfy optional binding interop dependencies. (#369)

    ๐Ÿ’ฅ Breaking Changes
    • Several methods that previously accepted null/NULL and returned null, now require non-null input.
      • Applies to: struct & callback creation methods and memByteBuffer/memUTF8/stack.UTF8/etc.
      • Added corresponding methods with the Safe suffix that accept null/NULL, matching the old behavior.
      • With this change the common case (non-null input) requires no code changes and is warning/error-free. The uncommon case (null input) is recognizable (the suffix) and must be handled properly to eliminate warnings/errors.
    • Allocation methods that returned null/NULL on allocation failure, now throw OutOfMemoryError instead. This matches the behavior of ByteBuffer.allocateDirect.
      • Applies to: struct allocation methods and memAlloc/memCalloc/etc.
      • Does not apply to allocations via direct binding calls (e.g. LibCStdlib.malloc).
    • Getters of struct members that should never be NULL, throw NullPointerException instead of returning null when the struct instance is not initialized.
      • Use Struct::isNull to test pointer members of untrusted struct instances.
    • bgfx: Restored native mapping of bgfx_init(_vendorId) and bgfx_update_texture_cube(_side) parameters. (#368)
    • bgfx: uint16_t bitfield constants are now mapped to int. (#368)
    • glfw: glfwInitHintString has been renamed to glfwWindowHintString.
    • lmdb: Databases developed on 32-bit architectures must be recreated. (#364)
    • par_shapes: Changed par_shapes_mesh::triangles from uint16_t/ShortBuffer to uint32_t/IntBuffer.
    • stb_rect_pack: stbrp_rect::was_packed is now mapped to Java boolean.
