Name        : directfb
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 1.6.2
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://www.directfb.org/
Summary     : Graphics abstraction library for the Linux Framebuffer Device
Description :
DirectFB is a thin library that provides hardware graphics acceleration,
input device handling and abstraction, integrated windowing system with
support for translucent windows and multiple display layers on top of the
Linux Framebuffer Device.

It is a complete hardware abstraction layer with software fallbacks for
every graphics operation that is not supported by the underlying hardware.
DirectFB adds graphical power to embedded systems and sets a new standard
for graphics under Linux.

Non-default rpmbuild options:
--with fusion:   Enable linux-fusion support
--with sdl:      Enable SDL experimental support

Update Information:

- When creating a windowed primary, translate window-surface-policy option to DSCAPS_SYSTEMONLY/VIDEOONLY.
- Stub out Core_Push/Pop/GetCalling in case of single app build, thanks to Mike Nelis!
- Temporary solution for permissions not being granted to a surface from GetSurface().
- prevent segfault when calls are launched from non-dfb threads.
- Reset flip counter to zero when changing buffer mode.
- When creating a window pass through DSCAPS_GL.
- Add dfb_regions_unite() to calculate bounds of one or more regions.

- Avoid division by zero with rotation and formats < 1 byte per pixel.

- Avoid double premultiplication when loading an image scaled.

- Use direct_list_foreach_safe() when iterating through receiving list.
- In OneAppTarget_Destroy() remove from receiving list if needed.

- Make x and y advances 24.8 fixed point to fix font rotation.

- Set max value for absolute motion events.

- Support ARGB directly in fboWrite(), add fboRead().

Video Provider
- Add WIP gstreamer video provider.
