PIXIJSV5

Recommended Posts

When can we expect pixijs V5? And how different from the current version will it be? I have an engine (I posted about this previously) that relies on pixijs 4.2 and adapting it to the current pixijs version is a lot of work so I don't want to do it if the version 5 is also gonna require the same adaptation work on my part. So if I adapt my engine to the current pixi version will I have to do it again for v 5?

As I remember, you have flash converter, right?

You can adapt it for 4.6 that I remember you wanted to do anyway. 

In v5 we might have a Stage and proper `added` and `removed` events like in flash: https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/pull/4586 , also there might be changes in InteractionManager. I think that other major changes wont affect your project.

yeah it's a typescript framework that mimic flash framework so I can convert from flash easily and underneath all that it's pixijs, the current version is too different and everything breaks so now I have a few quiet days to take care of that but just want to make sure that will work with v5 as well. When is v5 coming? Can't I just wait for it maybe.

Thanks! Btw is there any easy way (I haven't found one) to catch any unforeseen display rendering error in pixi (like a global caalback or something)? I run tons of check (for canvas support) before I even get to my pixi based app (which also does its own checking) and yet still in some rare cases (got a few on Android) everything starts but soon the display gives up due to some webgl commands not implemented in that browser version.

Right now the issue is me having not enough time to fix a few bugs. Everyone else;s job is done :) 

Pluigins like pixi-particles, pixi-tilemap, and some others are not ready for it.

The only plugin that works with v5 at the moment is pixi-spine.

Also I confirm that v5 release wont be good for @botmaster and some other projects before it gets tested enough.
