SuperTuxKart 1.2 Released with Better Gamepad Support, New Theme, and More

Coming almost eight months after version 1.1, SuperTuxKart 1.2 is here to introduce better gamepad support by implementing hotplugging, making remapping easier for players, as well as using the SDL2 (Simple DirectMedia Layer) library instead of Irrlicht for window creation. This release also introduces a new ???Cartoon??? theme, a new Kiki kart, an improved online rating system, improved Pidgin and Puffy karts, new tips for the soccer mode, support for viewing basketballs in the minimap, and the ability to use an add-on kart online even if you don’t use it.
