I have been interested in furthering the development of slick into a optional helpful library to those wanting to further there games but don't know how and for new comers. My idea of the library would include a widget library for GUI's. A complete entity framework to help people get started. And some utility classes like Cameras. Also maybe some helper classes to make jbox2d a little easier for new people to use. It wouldn't be an official util library for slick more like a psuedo library that is updated by the community. Let me know what you think.
Hi Wayful, not sure if you're aware of it:
there's already TWL and Nifty GUI libraries that are able to work with Slick. Furthermore there are several abandoned GUI libs that could be revived by someone who wants to take over.
The entity framework and stuff like camera for starters is pretty much covered by Gornova's and my MarteEngine.
There's also Kev's project Fizzy to wrap JBox2D in nicely OO and Slick friendly manner.
So it's all up there
Feel free to support any of those approaches.
But of course you could start your own if you want to
