The JoystickListener has been revised to only get events for when the joystick values change on an axis or a button, and the new interface makes it easier to distingush between the two types of event changes.
Some minor platform specific problems have also been fixed.
New support for the 2.4 Linux Kernel has been added. This Java interface to a Joystick now works under Windows and Linux. Help with the Mac port is also welcome.
The Joystick Interface for the Java Joystick is now simplified and tested more completely. Please have a look at the latest version of the download. If anyone wants to help me do a Mac or Linux port of this, I would be very glad to hear from them.
The Joystick Driver for Java now follows the Java event mechanism more closely. It now has a JoystickListener that a class can implement to get the latest values of a joystick. Feedback is always welcome on the sourceforge web site.
