Welcome to the latest edition of the Haxe Roundup. Haxe is a high level, strictly typed programming language and cross-compiler.
This week has seen two big releases.
Sven Bergström has started yet another project, to document HXCPP! The HXCPP guide has only just been created, but it’s already got a lot of valuable information in it. Keep an eye on the issues, as Lars Doucet has written down all his HXCPP CFFI knowledge which he used to get the SteamWrap library working.
