LÖVE 0.7.0 - Game Slave

0.7.0 brings lots of exciting new features. Framebuffers, for rendering to places other than the screen. Threads, for true multithreaded programming. New callbacks, like love.quit and love.focus. A text-origin change from lower- to upper-left. And about a million different bugs have been squashed! You can see everything we've done in the changelog, as seen below.

We hope you enjoy it! Go out and make beautiful LÖVE!
