Changes since 3.1.2:


  • Added rpmalloc bindings.
    • Use -Dorg.lwjgl.system.allocator=rpmalloc to make it the default memory allocator.
  • Added new extensions to OpenCL, EGL, OpenGL and OpenGL ES.
  • Assimp: Updated to 4.0.1 (up from 3.3.1)
  • bgfx: Updated to API version 48 (up from 41)
  • EGL: Added support for latest extensions
  • glfw: Updated to pre-release 3.3.0 version (up from 3.3.0 pre-release):
    • Improvements to error code query (glfwGetError)
    • More library initialization hints (glfwInitHintString)
    • SDL_GameControllerDB support
      • Import gamepad mappings (glfwUpdateGamepadMappings)
      • Query to determine whether a joystick has a gamepad mapping (glfwJoystickIsGamepad)
      • Query the name of a controller provided by its gamepad mapping (glfwGetGamepadName)
      • Retrieve gamepad input state (glfwGetGamepadState, GLFW_GAMEPAD_*, GLFWgamepadstate)
      • Query the SDL compatible GUID of a joystick (glfwGetJoystickGUID)
    • Linux: Moved to evdev for joystick input
    • EGL: Fixed support for EGL_KHR_create_context_no_error
    • GLX: Added support for GLX_ARB_create_context_no_error
    • WGL: Added support for WGL_ARB_create_context_no_error and WGL_EXT_colorspace
  • jemalloc: Updated to 5.0.1 (up from 4.5.0)
  • LibOVR: Updated to 1.18.0 (up from 1.14.0)
  • lmdb: Updated to 0.9.21 (up from withdrawn 0.9.20)
  • NanoVG: Updated to latest version (performance updates and new nvgShapeAntiAlias function).
  • Nuklear: Updated to 2.00.2 (up from 1.37.0)
  • OpenAL: Added ALC_SOFT_output_limiter extension.
  • OpenAL Soft: Updated to 1.18.2 (up from 1.17.2)
  • OpenCL: Added support for OpenCL 2.2
  • OpenGL: Added support for OpenGL 4.6 and latest extensions
  • OpenGL ES: Added support for latest extensions
  • OpenVR: Update to 1.0.10 (up from 1.0.7)
  • stb
    • Updated stb_dxt to 1.07 (up from 1.06)
    • Updated stb_image to 2.16 (up from 2.15)
    • Updated stb_image_resize to 0.95 (up from 0.94)
    • Updated stb_image_write to 1.07 (up from 1.05)
    • Updated stb_truetype to 1.17 (up from 1.15)
    • Updated stb_vorbis to 1.11 (up from 1.10)
  • tinyfiledialogs: Updated to 3.0.5 (up from 2.8.3)
  • Vulkan: Updated to 1.0.61 (up from 1.0.49)
  • xxhash: Updated to 0.6.3 (up from 0.6.2)
  • Yoga: Updated to 1.6.0 (up from 1.5.0)


  • Generator: Added @NativeType annotations to generated bindings. Documents the native type of:
    • Callback and struct classes.
    • Struct members.
    • Function parameters and return values.
  • The default memory allocator on Windows is now the system allocator instead of jemalloc.
    • jemalloc is not properly optimized for Windows and its performance is not competitive.
    • jemalloc is still a major performance win on Linux and macOS.
    • rpmalloc is faster on all platforms but requires per-thread setup, so must be enabled manually.
  • Buffers created via MemoryUtil may now have up to Integer.MAX_VALUE elements, regardless of element size.
    • For example this allows a LongBuffer allocation of up to 16GB.
  • Added typed overloads to MemoryUtil::memSet and MemoryUtil::memCopy.
  • StructBuffer subclasses are now Iterable and have stream() and parallelStream() methods.
  • OpenGL: Added LongBuffer overloads to buffer object functions.


  • bgfx: Fixed signature of bgfx_create_frame_buffer_from_attachment.
  • OpenGL: Fixed signature of glPixelStoref.
  • OpenGL: ARB_direct_state_access interactions are now respected when checking if the extension is available.
  • stb_image: added ShortBuffer overload to stbi_image_free.
  • stb_truetype: Fixed signature of stbtt_PackFontRangesGatherRects and stbtt_PackFontRangesRenderIntoRects.

Breaking Changes

  • glfw: Signature of glfwGetError has changed.
  • jemalloc: Removed JEmacros and moved its functionality to JEmalloc.
  • jemalloc: ChunkHooks has been replaced by ExtentHooks.
  • OpenCL: Removed two confusing clCompileProgram overloads.
