Today I noticed that some of the functions on the sdl_ttf documentation page here are not defined in the header I've been using. For example, attempting to use TTF_SetFontOutline results in a a compile error `TTF_SetFontOutline' was not declared in this scope I thought that the problem might be because the documentation page is labeled 2.0.10, but I think I am using version 2.0.9 of the library. However, this page does not list a version 2.0.10. Does this version even exist? What is going on here? Here is the header file I've been using

Nevermind, I discovered that I could get version 10 from here. http://www.libsdl.org/tmp/SDL_ttf/


Now if only there were a way to do alpha to alpha blitting in SDL.
