This came out in September, I should have posted it then..
Galleon is hard at work with a new version of the QB64 compiler (QBASIC code compatabile!) that makes smaller standalone EXE's that don't need the SDL DLL's to run. One complaint people had with QB64 is the large SDL library overhead compiled EXE's required to run. QB64 GL version is eleminating that!
Not every QB64 command up and running yet in the GL version, but most are. This is a major development in the QB64 project and I encourage every QB fan to check it out.
A Windows & Linux version of QB64 GL is available (an Android version is in the works!)
