Animated Bitmap Class Update
I’ve updated the [intlink id="92" type="post"]AnimatedBitmap[/intlink] class so that it now uses an external timer object to trigger the animation. The advantage of this is that one timer can be used for many animated objects that use the same framerate. For this purpose a custom FrameRateTimer class has been added. This saves memory and CPU cycles when many animated objects are used.
I will eventually add an AnimatedDisplayObjectManager class later with that many animated objects can be controlled at once (e.g. stop/play all sprites at once) but this will probably be more intervened with the whole framework (as it might make use of custom data structures).
