SixtyFPS UI Library

This week we were working towards the upcoming 0.2.0 release.

This is a opportunity for us to fix things that were named poorly, to shuffle some code around, to remove deprecated APIs as well as turn some warnings into errors and to update our required tooling.

So many of the changes this week do break API, and we hope that these changes will make for a library that is easier to code for and easier for us to extend and maintain.

API Changes for Version 0.2.0

More work was done in preparation to renaming the project as well as its crates.

New Features


Migration guides from version 0.1.x to 0.2.0 were added. You can find preliminary versions of these guides here:

These guides describe all the major API incompatible changes and will of course be part of the documentation of version 0.2.
