Sky texture environment lighting

Environment lighting using Sky Texture is now supported in GLSL render in both viewport and game. The UI look as follow:


The texture defined by the user in world texture setting is sampled using geometry normal. The result looks like this without any lamp in scene, only environment lighting:

Python inputs helpers

Four attributes are implemented in SCA_InputEvent to help the user to detect if the input was from the last frame: activated, released, active or inactive.

These attributes produce the same operation as checking elements in SCA_InputEvent.status or SCA_InputEvent.events, their names are:

Physics empty shape

The user is now able to create a rigid body with an empty physics shape, this rigid body will produces no collisions but will be affected by gravity. An usage of this empty shape is to just place the gravity center of a compound shape without using a shape, this empty shape is then used as the parent compound shape.

Creating custom filter without fragment source

Custom filter can now be created without fragment source specified when calling KX_2DFilterManager.addFilter(...). This permits the user to later call KX_2DFilter.setSourceList(...) and then be able to specify a vertex shader or even a geometry shader.

Compatibility notes

SCA_KeyboardSensor.inputs now follows the same behavior than SCA_PythonKeyboard.inputs with the usage of a python dictionary instead of a list of list.
