Hi Everyone,

I don't know what this Pygame 2.0 is supposed to be. The upcoming Pygame 1.9.2 could be released as Pygame 2.0 if that would make users happy. There is a pgreloaded (Pygame2) <http://code.google.com/p/pgreloaded/> , that was spun off from Pygame by Marcus von Appen. But it is an independently maintained project that is incompatible with Pygame. For Pygame 1.9.2 pre-alpha, there is a new text rendering module, improved Unicode support, good integration with Python 3.2, generic array support (used with NumPy), and a reworked PixelArray that slicing operations consistent with other array types.

As for SDL 2.0 support, that will wait until SDL 2.0 is ready.
