I made the first release of my 2d physics engine : or

This engine currently supports RigidBodies, CollisionEngine and Impulse Response. ( For a full list of feature go see the wiki ).

I someone could test the engine and give some feedbacks, it would be nice :)

ps : excuse for my english and for the english on the website but it's not my motherlanguage.

Looks great, but my lazyness is preventing me from trying it right now.
No compiled win32 version available for download?

I'll comment more later if I get around to compiling and running it :)

Well, I compiled and ran it (after some fuss.)

Is the example working correctly??

When I run it five red triangles briefly appear on the screen, and fly off in different directions.

Only one is reflected by the green triangle walls, the others pass through them and fly off the screen (there also appears to be a drawing problem when a triangle is half-off the edge of the screen).

More examples would be nice?
I would love to have a nice 2d physics library to play with, and the features you are planning on here seem more then complete enough (provided it all works :P)

A similar engine appeared recently:
Its demo was quite impressive.

Kevlar-X > hum, sorry about the compiling, my makefiles/VC projects aren't very good.
This is quite strange, this is maybe because of SDL, I'll try to do some examples with ClanLib or just simply OpenGL.

I also plan to release a binary version of it.

Can either of those physics engines simulate a round ball bouncing off arbitrary surfaces with spin? I need to do that for a bounce juggling simulator.

it can't for the moment, because it doesn't support non convex polygon. But for the next release I will add a triagulation algorithm so you can divide a concave poylgon in multiple convex polygons and be able to do your simulation.

For no you can still try to create your surface with convex polygons.
