Both are exactly the same--you could even use [[a]] or [=[a]=] etc.

I've been using the latest, just note

* using quads, the last two parameters are the width and height of the image
* I had to use require() and dofile() over love.filesystem.require() etc.
* TTF text positions at bottom left

my other notes, not sure if still relevant
*mkdir() fails when write directory not set
*ALWAYS use RELATIVE paths for love filesystem options, use ABSOLUTE paths for other libraries or lua
*need to add "/" between paths

Have you tried hand-editing the .deb? That might work, but I'm not sure.

I just fixed that in the repo, wait until the next build to see it in effect.

Does 0.6.0 still return OS X as "Linux" when getting the Platform?

0.6.0 (more specifically e17b9a6456bd) just gives me a black screen when I try running any games. I get no error messages or nothing, just a black screen. 0.5.0 works just fine though.

I'm running Ubuntu 9.04. If you need more information, just ask.

Is the game written for 0.6.0 or for 0.5.0?
See http://love2d.org/wiki/index.php?title=Version_0.6.0 for a list of things that have to be changed to make it work.

In my naïveté I thought 0.6.0 would be backwards compatible, but they kind people on IRC enlightened me. It now works as it should.
