Great Library byDaVince

SDL is VERY good for creating games and MultiMedia applications. The best part is that it is a cross-platform library, so you can create one game and it would compile and work under Windows, Linux, Mac... Tons of platforms.
I really like this DevPack and I hope newer versions (including SDL_ttf, SDL_mixer and the like) will keep on coming.
