As per the plan for v0.2, I am ready with a working implementation of inkface. I also made few more design decisions after my last design post. Here are the highlights:
1. All code is in python
2. For X11 surfaces, pygame is used.
I found that pygame (python bindings for SDL) is a mature library for drawing on X11 surfaces. It also has some optimizations which help in 2D animations. There is also OpenGL support, but I do not plan to use it inside inkface library. It is also well supported on Maemo.
I have written my favorite twitter client app with the new inkface-pygame library. The following video demo shows, how I could quickly code 2D scrolling animation with the help of pygame.
The v0.2.0 is delivered as a tarball. I have also updated the inkface wiki with some getting-started tips.
