As I'm sure you are aware, various APIs within DirectX are being dropped (depreciated) as of version 9. The following is a list of the APIs affected:
<li>DirectPlay (ver 4 and earlier)</li>
<li>DirectDraw (ver 6 and earlier)</li>
<li>Direct3D (ver 8 and earlier)</li>
<li>DirectInput (ver 7 and earlier)</li>
As you can see, some of these APIs are still being used in Doomsday under Windows so we need to begin thinking about updating our DirectX usage.
