A new flexible, object oriented draw module for pygame and pygame2

by Jug for Python Software Foundation

Drawing is a central part of a game and media library like pygame. Nonetheless the the drawing capabilities of pygame are severely limited. Just a few basic shapes to draw, no flexibility and mostly ugly output. The anti-aliasing methods in the new gfxdraw module can only be used with shape outlines (width=1), not with filled shapes. All in all, the drawing functionality of pygame is too restricted to be really useful. (Not to mention the missing documentation of the gfxdraw module.)
