Hey Rob (and other guys)!
I was thrilled today to see that Sparrow is now maintained again with activity in the master branch.
We (JoyTunes) are suffering from various issues in our apps, and a live-and-kicking new Sparrow version could be super cool for us 🙂
I was already impressed with some syntax improvements I saw.
Today I tried to get our codebase to compile and link against the master branch. It wasn't very easy (a lot of breaking APIs, mainly SP_MACROS renaming) but I eventually succeeded.
I'm still moving from problem to problem though, so I would be really happy to know if there's a good changelog and porting guide available or planned.
I already noticed for instance SPTextField has new bold and italic attributes, which I think caused it to crash if you use FontName-Bold as the fontName.
What else was changed? What do I gain from upgrading? (e.g. Performance improvements?)
