I gave it a try but I preferred the previous version because:
- There are some crashes (i.e when drawing over the virtaul keyboard)
- It's so much slower (when I played the previous version at 480x640)
it was less usable, but the animations were really smoother
- The virtual keyboard is very hard to use.
However thanks for your work...
PS: to reset the resolution on crashes, change the desktop file from:
Exec=xrandr -o 3 && numptyphysics -geometry 640x480 && xrandr -o 0
Exec=xrandr -o 3 && numptyphysics -geometry 640x480; xrandr -o 0
