Difference Between Unofficial And Official PyGame ?
I Was Just Checking Some Github Projects And I Found A One That Says It Needs *Unofficial* PyGame And The Site Wasn't Trusted Like Null-Byte You Can Access The Site But Google Won't Let You So My Question Is What Is The Difference Between Official And Unofficial PyGame ?
I Found This Link:
The files are unofficial (meaning: informal, ==> unrecognized, ==>personal, ==>unsupported, ==>no warranty, ==>no liability, ==>provided "as is") and ==> made available for "testing and evaluation purposes".
As far as I know, there is no official version of pygame. Pygame is free and open source the latter of which makes it unofficial. Maybe in the project the developer meant that the version used wasn't the version available on the site but his own modified one. Or it simply meant that it needs an unofficial library - Pygame.
Official: Written by the _developers_, supported by the _community_. Whatever features exist come with a "guarantee"* of working under the documented conditions.
Unofficial: Sometimes experimental/bleeding-edge releases. Often _forks_ by parties who are _not the developers_ to push extra support/features. This case becomes a nightmare upstream so invariably they become separate projects. Sometimes the community is unhelpful with forks. There is no guarantee of functionality from the original developers.
*Usually all software is provided as-is without warrantee or guarantee of fitness for any purpose.
