Thanks to the work of Gemserk</a> LWJGL is now available in the central Maven repo!

So, switching to a new LWJGL version was actually very easy. I've just changed the existing dependencies in the pom.xml for the nifty-lwjgl-renderer project to:


org.lwjgl.lwjgl</groupId>
lwjgl</artifactId>
2.8.1</version>
</dependency>

org.lwjgl.lwjgl</groupId>
lwjgl_util</artifactId>
2.8.1</version>
</dependency></pre>

and that's all! :D

As an additional benefit they created a natives plugin</a> that will unpack all of the LWJGL natives in the target/natives directory. When combined with an eclipse plugin</a> this will even add the natives to the native library location inside of Eclipse and ... that's all! :D

I've added it to the nifty-examples pom.xml and now you don't need to manually specify the "-Djava.library.path= " setting when you run any of the examples anymore! Works pretty well!

Great work Gemserk!</strong>
