Starboard Version Changelog

This document records all changes made to the Starboard interface, up to the current version, but not including the experimental version. This file will be updated each time a new Starboard version is released. Each section in this file describes the changes made to the Starboard interface since the version previous to it.

NOTE: Starboard versions 9 and below are no longer supported.

Experimental Version

A description of all changes currently in the experimental Starboard version can be found in the comments of the “Experimental Feature Defines” section of configuration.h.

Version 13

Changed lifecycle events to add support for a concealed state.

  • The Pause event is renamed to Blur.
  • The Unpause event is renamed to Focus.
  • The Suspend event is replaced by Conceal and Freeze.
  • The Resume event is replaced by Unfreeze and Reveal.

Most platforms should only need to replace ‘Pause’ with ‘Blur’, ‘Unpause’ with ‘Focus’, ‘Suspend’ with ‘Freeze’, and ‘Resume’ with ‘Reveal’.

Since there is no longer a special Preloading state, applications should no longer use the Start event when a preloaded application is brought to the foreground. Instead, the same event(s) used for backgrounded applications (Concealed or Frozen) should be used.

See cobalt/doc/ for more details.

Added network connectivity events and function.

Added kSbEventTypeOsNetworkDisconnected and kSbEventTypeOsNetworkConnected so the platform can provide hints to the application of network connectivity changes.

Added function SbSystemNetworkIsDisconnected() to allow the application to query the network connectivity status.

Added an event for date/time configuration changes.

If the platform detects a change in the date/time configuration (e.g. timezone change), then it should send the new kSbEventDateTimeConfigurationChanged event.

Deprecated speech recognizer API.

The starboard/speech_recognizer.h APIs have been deprecated -- even for platforms that define SB_HAS(SPEECH_RECOGNIZER). Instead, the application is expected to use the starboard/microphone.h APIs.

Updated platform-based UI navigation API.

Added functions to direct the platform's UI engine to maintain focus on an item for a specific time before allowing focus to change. Also added a function to perform a batch of UI updates so that UI changes are atomic.

Functionality for a few existing APIs were clarified without changing the API itself.

Fixed spelling on accessibility events.

Changed kSbEventTypeAccessiblityTextToSpeechSettingsChanged to kSbEventTypeAccessibilityTextToSpeechSettingsChanged.

Changed kSbEventTypeAccessiblitySettingsChanged to kSbEventTypeAccessibilitySettingsChanged.

Deprecated some starboard macros.

The following macros have been removed:


Deprecated some standalone starboard functions.

The following starboard functions have been removed:

  • SbCharacterIsAlphanumeric
  • SbCharacterIsDigit
  • SbCharacterIsHexDigit
  • SbCharacterIsSpace
  • SbCharacterIsUpper
  • SbCharacterToLower
  • SbCharacterToUpper
  • SbStringConcat
  • SbStringConcatUnsafe
  • SbStringConcatWide
  • SbDoubleAbsolute
  • SbDoubleExponent

  • SbStringParseUInt64
  • SbStringParseUnsignedInteger
  • SbSystemBinarySearch
  • SbSystemSort

Add SbTimeMonotonic timestamp into SbEvent.

Remove SbTimeMonotonic timestamp from SbInputData.

Deprecated kSbSystemCapabilitySetsInputTimestamp from SbSystemCapabilityId.

The new timestamp field from SbEvent will be used instead of the deprecated timestamp in SbInputData.

Moved SbMediaIsSupported() from media.h to media_support_internal.h.

It has never been used by Cobalt. It is only used inside Starboard by functions like CanPlayMimeAndKeySystem(), and is no longer exposed as a Starboard interface function.

Version 12

Add support for platform-based UI navigation.

The system can be disabled by implementing the function SbUiNavGetInterface() to return false. Platform-based UI navigation allows the platform to receive feedback on where UI elements are located and also lets the platform control what is selected and what the scroll parameters are.

NOTE: This API is not used in the production web app yet, so please use the stub implementation for SbUiNavGetInterface() for now.

Require the OpenGL and Skia renderers on all platforms.

The system must implement SbGetGlesInterface() in starboard/gles.h or use the provided stub implementation.

This change also effectively deprecates the gyp variable “enable_map_to_mesh” in favor of CobaltGraphicsExtensionApi function IsMapToMeshEnabled() and the command line switch --disable_map_to_mesh. Now, Cobalt will assume the platform supports map_to_mesh, so platforms that do not will have to have return |false| from IsMapToMeshEnabled() or use the provided command line switch.

Require the captions API.

The system must implement the captions functions in starboard/accessibility.h or use the provided stub implementations. System caption can be disabled by implementing the function SbAccessibilityGetCaptionSettings(SbAccessibilityCaptionSettings* caption_settings) to return false as the stub implementation does. This change also deprecates the SB_HAS_CAPTIONS flag.

Require compilation with IPv6.

Cobalt must be able to determine at runtime if the system supports IPv6. IPv6 can be disabled by defining SB_HAS_IPV6 to 0.

Require the microphone API.

The system must implement the microphone functions in starboard/microphone.h or use the provided stub functions. The microphone can be disabled by having SbMicrophoneCreate() return |kSbMicrophoneInvalid|. This change also deprecates the SB_HAS_MICROPHONE flag.

Require the memory mapping API.

The system must implement the memory mapping functions in starboard/memory.h and starboard/shared/dlmalloc.h or use the provided stub implementations. This change also deprecates the SB_HAS_MMAP flag.

Require the on screen keyboard API.

The system must implement the on screen keyboard functions in starboard/window.h or use the provided stub implementations. The on screen keyboard can be disabled by implementing the function SbWindowOnScreenKeyboardIsSupported() to return false as the stub implementation does.

Require speech recognizer API.

The system must implement the functions in starboard/speech_recognizer.h or use the provided stub implementations. The speech recognizer can be disabled by implementing the function SbSpeechRecognizerIsSupported() to return false as the stub implementation does.

Require the speech synthesis API.

The system must implement the speech synthesis function in starboard/speech_synthesis.h or use the provided stub implementations. Speech synthesis can be disabled by implementing the function SbSpeechSynthesisIsSupported() to return false as the stub implementation does.

Require the time thread now API.

The system must implement the time thread now functions in starboard/time.h or use the provided stub implementations. Time thread now can be disabled by implementing the function SbTimeIsTimeThreadNowSupported() to return false as the stub implementation does.

Add SbFileAtomicReplace API.

Introduce the Starboard function SbFileAtomicReplace() to provide the ability to atomically replace the content of a file.

Introduces new system property kSbSystemPathStorageDirectory.

Path to directory for permanent storage. Both read and write access are required.

Introduce Starboard Application Binary Interface (SABI) files.

SABI files are used to describe the configuration for targets such that two targets, built with the same SABI file and varying toolchains, have compatible Starboard APIs and ABIs.

With this define, we have:

  1. Moved architecture specific defines and configurations from configuration_public.h and *.gyp[i] files into SABI files.
  2. Included the appropriate SABI file in each platform configuration.
  3. Included the //starboard/sabi/sabi.gypi file in each platform configuration which consumes SABI file fields and defines a set of constants that are accessible when building.
  4. Provided a set of tests that ensure the toolchain being used produces an executable or shared library that conforms to the included SABI file.

For further information on what is provided by SABI files, or how these values are consumed, take a look at //starboard/sabi.

Updates the API guarantees of SbMutexAcquireTry.

SbMutexAcquireTry now has undefined behavior when it is invoked on a mutex that has already been locked by the calling thread. In addition, since SbMutexAcquireTry was used in SbMutexDestroy, SbMutexDestroy now has undefined behavior when invoked on a locked mutex.

Migrate the Starboard configuration variables from macros to extern consts.

The migration allows Cobalt to make platform level decisions at runtime instead of compile time which lets us create a more comprehensive Cobalt binary.

This means Cobalt must remove all references to these macros that would not translate well to constants, i.e. in compile time references or initializing arrays. Therefore, we needed to change the functionality of the function SbDirectoryGetNext in “starboard/directory.h”. Because we do not want to use variable length arrays, we pass in a c-string and length to the function to achieve the same result as before when passing in a SbDirectoryEntry.

A platform will define the extern constants declared in “starboard/configuration_constants.h”. The definitions are done in “starboard/<PLATFORM_PATH>/”.

The exact mapping between macros and extern variables can be found in “starboard/shared/starboard/configuration_constants_compatibility_defines.h” though the naming scheme is very nearly the same: the old SB_FOO macro will always become the constant kSbFoo.

Improve player creation and output mode query.

  1. Introduce the new type SbPlayerCreationParam that holds the common parameters used to create an SbPlayer() and to query for the output mode support.

  2. Replace SbPlayerOutputModeSupported() by SbPlayerGetPreferredOutputMode() so the SbPlayer implementation can explicitly indicate its preference on output mode, when all output modes are supported. For example, Cobalt used to always query for |kSbPlayerOutputModePunchOut| first, without providing details about the video going to be played, and not query for output modes if punch out is supported. The new interface allows the implementation to fine tune its output mode. For example, it may decide to use |kSbPlayerOutputModeDecodeToTexture| for low resolution videos.

Introduce error handling into reference SbAudioSinkPrivate.

The implementation is in: “starboard/shared/starboard/audio_sink/audio_sink_internal.*”.

Change the thread types to be portable with stable ABI.

The following types were updated: SbThread, SbMutex, SbOnce and SbConditionVariable.

Introduce support of cbcs encryption scheme into SbDrmSystem.

The definition follows ISO/IEC 23001 part 7.

Add link register to SbThreadContext.

Make GYP configuration variables cobalt extensions instead.

This change moves all of the GYP configuration variables to be members of the struct declared in “cobalt/extension/configuration.h”. All members are function pointers that can be set for each platform, otherwise defaults will be used. These can be referenced through functions declared in “cobalt/configuration/configuration.h”, which will use the extension API if available, but will otherwise fall back onto default values.

Add the PCLMULQDQ instruction feature.

The PCLMULQDQ was added to the Starboard CPU features interface for x86 architectures.

|content_type| is added to SbMediaIsVideoSupported() and


Enables a test that checks that Opus is supported.

Add kSbSystemPropertySystemIntegratorName

This change also deprecates kSbSystemPropertyOriginalDesignManufacturerName. The kSbSystemPropertySystemIntegratorName value will represent the corporate entity responsible for submitting the device to YouTube certification and for the device maintenance/updates.

Deprecated the Blitter API.

Blitter API is no longer supported on any platform. Use the OpenGL ES interface instead.

Deprecated the Crypto API.

Crypto API is no longer supported on any platform. BoringSSL CPU optimizations are used instead.

Deprecate the SB_HAS_VIRTUAL_REGIONS flag as all platforms define it to 0.


Deprecated unused enums |kSbPlayerDecoderStateBufferFull| and


Deprecated the usage of |SbMediaIsOutputProtected()| and


Deprecated the |SB_HAS_QUIRK_SEEK_TO_KEYFRAME| macro.


Deprecated ‘cobalt_minimum_frame_time_in_milliseconds’.

The variable ‘cobalt_minimum_frame_time_in_milliseconds’ is deprecated in favor of the usage of ‘CobaltExtensionGraphicsApi::GetMinimumFrameIntervalInMilliseconds’ API. The declaration of ‘GetMinimumFrameIntervalInMilliseconds’ can be found in cobalt/renderer/backend/graphics_context.h

Deprecate support for GLES3 features.

Deprecate Web Extension support.

The Platform Services API should be used instead. See cobalt/doc/

Add event for text-to-speech settings changes.

If the platform supports text-to-speech settings, it must use the new kSbEventTypeAccessiblityTextToSpeechSettingsChanged event to inform the app when those settings change. For older starboard versions, use kSbEventTypeAccessiblitySettingsChanged instead.

Add extension to SbMediaCanPlayMimeAndKeySystem() for encryptionScheme.

Now the Starboard implementation may choose to support |key_system| with extra attributes, in order to selectively support encryption schemes on particular containers or codecs. The Starboard implementation needn't support |key_system| with extra attributes if it meets the requirements for the default implementation of Navigator.requestMediaKeySystemAccess(), which assumes that:

  1. When the Widevine DRM system is used, all the encryption schemes (‘cenc’, ‘cbcs’, ‘cbcs-1-9’) should be supported across all containers and codecs supported by the platform.
  2. When the PlayReady DRM system is used, only ‘cenc’ is supported across all containers and codecs supported by the platform.

Please see the comment of SbMediaCanPlayMimeAndKeySystem() in media.h for more details.

Version 11

Add arguments to SbMediaIsVideoSupported.

Add arguments for profile, level, bit depth, color primaries, transfer characteristics, and matrix coefficients. See comments of SbMediaIsVideoSupported for more details. Also, the function SbMediaIsTransferCharacteristicsSupported() is no longer necessary and is removed.

Add support for AC3 audio.

Replace kSbMediaVideoCodecVp10 with kSbMediaVideoCodecAv1.

Add a new enum kSbPlayerErrorMax in starboard/player.h.

Add new parameter max_video_capabilities to SbPlayerCreate().

This gives the application the option to specify to the SbPlayer object what the maximum video specifications will be, as a hint to the platform on how to allocate resources for the SbPlayer. For example, if the player will never exceed a 240p playback resolution, then a software decoder may be initialized. Please see comment in SbPlayerCreate() for more details.

Refactor SbPlayerSampleInfo to reuse SbPlayerSampleInfo in filter based player.

Additionally, add audio and codec info for every sample.

Introduce audio write duration

Add a function SbMediaSetAudioWriteDuration() to starboard/media.h which communicates to the platform how much audio will be sent to the platform at a time.

Introduce Cobalt Extensions using the SbSystemGetExtension interface.

Cobalt extensions implement app & platform specific functionality.

Deprecate unused function SbSystemClearPlatformError().

Deprecate kSbEventTypeNetworkDisconnect and kSbEventTypeNetworkConnect.

Add support for using C++11 standard unordered maps and sets.

By setting SB_HAS_STD_UNORDERED_HASH to 1, a platform can be configured to use C++11 standard hash table implementations, specifically, using:

  • std::unordered_map<> for base::hash_map<>
  • std::unordered_multimap<> for base::hash_multimap<>
  • std::unordered_set<> for base::hash_set<>
  • std::unordered_multiset<> for base::hash_multiset<>


Adds support for specifying screen diagonal length.

When a platform knows its physical screen diagonal length, it can now provide that data to the application via SbWindowGetDiagonalSizeInInches().

Add support for device authentication system properties.

The system properties kSbSystemPropertyCertificationScope and kSbSystemPropertyBase64EncodedCertificationSecret have been added to enable client apps to perform device authentication. The values will be queried by calls to SbSystemGetProperty() in starboard/system.h. An alternative to providing the kSbSystemPropertyBase64EncodedCertificationSecret property is to implement the SbSystemSignWithCertificationSecretKey() function, enabling the key to remain private and secure.

Add support for SbThreadSampler and SbThreadContext.

This is helpful for enabling the implementation of sampling-based profilers. A full implementation is only required if the new function SbThreadSamplerIsSupported() returns true. A valid implementation will need to implement the new starboard/thread.h functions, SbThreadContextGetPointer(), SbThreadSamplerIsSupported(), SbThreadSamplerCreate(), SbThreadSamplerDestroy(), SbThreadSamplerFreeze(), SbThreadSamplerThaw().

Introduce functions for supplying suggestions to the on screen keyboard.

A new API in starboard/window.h is introduced which declares the functions SbWindowUpdateOnScreenKeyboardSuggestions() and SbWindowOnScreenKeyboardSuggestionsSupported(). This is only relevant if SB_HAS(ON_SCREEN_KEYBOARD).

Introduce new file error code kSbFileErrorIO.

The new code, added to starboard/file.h, should match “EIO” on Posix platforms.

Move the definition of FormatString() from starboard/string.h to starboard/format_string.h.

Make the decode target content region parameters floats instead of ints.

The SbDecodeTargetInfoContentRegion struct is modified to accept floats instead of ints. The primary motivation for this change is to make it so that on platforms where it is difficult to obtain the width and height of a texture, we can still correctly identify a precise fractional “normalized” content region with the texture width and height set to 1.

Add kSbSystemPropertyOriginalDesignManufacturerName enum value.

This change also deprecates kSbSystemPropertyNetworkOperatorName. The kSbSystemPropertyOriginalDesignManufacturerName value will represent the corporate entity responsible for the manufacturing/assembly of the device on behalf of the business entity owning the brand.

Cross-platform helper Starboard definitions factored out of core interface.

Cross-platform helper Starboard definitions refactored out of /starboard/ and into /starboard/common/. In order to more explicitly identify the core Starboard API, multiple files, or parts of them, were moved into the static library /starboard/common/.

Log synchronization responsibility has been moved behind Starboard.

The application is no longer responsible for synchronizing (e.g. via mutex) calls to Starboard logging, this is now expected to be done by the Starboard implementation. Logging functions, such as SbLog or SbLogRaw, must now have implementations that are thread-safe because they will be called from multiple threads without external synchronization.

Additionally, the minimum logging level is no longer set by the application, and is instead set by grabbing the value as a command-line argument within Starboard.

Starboard now provides a EGL and GLES interface as a structure of pointers.

To remove the direct inclusion of EGL and GLES system libraries throughout the application, we need to move this dependency behind a Starboardized API. This API can be found in /starboard/egl.h and /starboard/gles.h.

Add interface for querying for CPU features, in /starboard/cpu_features.h.

The new interface enables the platform to communicate to the application which CPU features are available, which can enable the application to perform certain CPU-specific optimizations (e.g. SIMD).



These macros must always be set to 1 for Starboard version 6 or later. They will be removed in a future version. Any implementation that supports Starboard version 6 or later should be modified to no longer depend on these macros, with the assumption that their values are always 1.

Version 10

Introduce functions to query at runtime for media buffer settings

In particular, the following methods are introduced:

  • SbMediaGetAudioBufferBudget
  • SbMediaGetBufferAlignment
  • SbMediaGetBufferAllocationUnit
  • SbMediaGetBufferGarbageCollectionDurationThreshold
  • SbMediaGetBufferPadding
  • SbMediaGetBufferStorageType
  • SbMediaGetInitialBufferCapacity
  • SbMediaGetMaxBufferCapacity
  • SbMediaGetProgressiveBufferBudget
  • SbMediaGetVideoBufferBudget
  • SbMediaIsBufferPoolAllocateOnDemand
  • SbMediaIsBufferUsingMemoryPool

Add support for player_filter_tests

Require compiling ‘player_filter_tests’ test target sources on all platforms, including and For this Starboard API version and beyond, SB_HAS(PLAYER_FILTER_TESTS) is true.

Deprecate SbMediaTime for SbTime

SbMediaTime, which is 90khz based, was used to represent timestamps and duration related to SbPlayer. As most of the platforms represent video related times in milliseconds or microseconds, this causes a lot of otherwise unnecessary conversion. Now all timestamps and duration related to SbPlayer are represented by SbTime directly.

Refine sample writing of SbPlayer

Added two new functions SbPlayerGetMaximumNumberOfSamplesPerWrite() and SbPlayerWriteSample2(). The former allows implementation to specify the maximum numbers of samples that can be written using the latter at once. As it takes multiple thread context switches to call SbPlayerWriteSample2() once, it can optimize performance on low end platforms by reducing the frequence of calling SbPlayerWriteSample2().

Add support for player error messages

SbPlayerCreate() now accepts an additional parameter, player_error_func, that can be called when an error occurs to propagate the error to the application.

Add support for system-level closed caption settings

SbAccessibilityGetCaptionSettings() and SbAccessibilitySetCaptionsEnabled() along with a number of supporting structure definitions have been added to accessibility.h. Platforms will need to define SB_HAS_CAPTIONS to 1 in order to enable the interface.

Add support for audioless video playback

SbPlayer can be created with only a video track, without any accompanying audio track. The SbPlayer implementation must now be able to play back a sole video track.

Add support for audio only video playback

SbPlayer can be created with only an audio track, without any accompanying video track. The SbPlayer implementation must now be able to play back a sole audio track.

Require support for creating multiple SbPlayer instances

Formerly, there were no tests ensuring that calling SbPlayerCreate() multiple times (without calling SbPlayerDestroy() in between) would not crash, and likewise no tests ensuring that calling SbAudioSinkCreate() multiple times (without calling SbAudioSinkDestroy() in between) would not crash. SbPlayerCreate() may return kSbPlayerInvalid if additional players are not supported. SbAudioSinkCreate() may return kSbAudionSinkInvalid if additional audio sinks are not supported.

Require stricter error handling on calls some SbPlayer* calls

Specifically, SbPlayerCreate(), SbPlayerCreateWithUrl() and SbDrmCreateSystem() must result in invalid return values (e.g. kSbPlayerInvalid or kSbDrmSystemInvalid appropriately).

Refine the DRM API

Specifically, the following changes have been made:

  1. Add a callback to SbDrmCreateSystem that allows a DRM system to signal that a DRM session has closed from the Starboard layer. Previously, DRM sessions could only be closed from the application layer.
  2. Allow calling SbDrmSessionUpdateRequestFunc and SbDrmSessionUpdatedFunc with extra status and optional error message.
  3. Add request type parameter to SbDrmSessionUpdateRequestFunc to support individualization, license renewal, and license release.

Remove kSbSystemPathSourceDirectory

Test code looking for its static input files should instead use the test subdirectory in kSbSystemPathContentDirectory.

Remove kSbSystemPropertyPlatformUuid

This property was only ever used in platforms using in_app_dial. The only usage of this system property was replaced with a self-contained mechanism.

Deprecate kSbMediaAudioSampleTypeInt16

SB_HAS_QUIRK_SUPPORT_INT16_AUDIO_SAMPLES has to be defined to continue support int16 audio samples after this version.

Add kSbPlayerErrorCapabilityChanged to SbPlayerError

This allows the SbPlayer implementation to notify the app that its playback capability has changed during a video playback. For example, the system may support vp9 decoding with an external GPU. When the external GPU is detached, this error code can signal the app to retry the playback, possibly with h264.

Add support for SbSystemSupportsResume()

Platforms doesn't need to resume after suspend can return false in SbSystemSupportsResume() to free up the resource used by resume after suspend. Please see the comment in system.h for more details.

Support the kSbKeyMicrophone keycode

Add support for new decode target type, kSbDecodeTargetFormat3Plane10BitYUVI420

Added kSbDecodeTargetFormat3Plane10BitYUVI420 to the SbDecodeTargetFormat enum in order to support 10-bit YUV textures.

Optionally provide absolute timestamp to SbAudioSinkConsumeFramesFunc()

SbAudioSinkConsumeFramesFunc() can now optionally accept an absolute timestamp parameter that indicates when the frames are consumed. Platforms that have the frames_consumed updated asynchronously can have more accurate audio time reporting with this extra parameter. Please see the comment in audio_sink.h for more details.

Add support for the SbAtomic8 type and memory access functions

Introduce SbMemoryProtect()

SbMemoryProtect() allows memory access permissions to be changed after they have been mapped with SbMemoryMap.

Add a timestamp field to SbInputData

This allows platforms to provide more precise information on exactly when an input event was generated. Note that if SbSystemHasCapability(kSbSystemCapabilitySetsInputTimestamp) returns false, the timestamp field of SbInputData should be ignored by applications.

Introduces kSbMemoryMapProtectReserved flag.

kSbMemoryMapProtectReserved, which is identical to SbMemoryMapFlags(0), is introduced. When SbMemoryMap() is called with kSbMemoryMapProtectReserved, only virtual address space should be reserved for the mapped memory, and not actual physical memory.

Add support for multiple versions of ffmpeg

An extra version agnostic ffmpeg dynamic dispatch layer is added in order to support multiple different versions of ffmpeg as may appear on user systems.

Make linux-x64x11 builds use GLX (via Angle) instead of EGL by default

While common Cobalt code still targets EGL/GLES2, we now use Angle on linux-x64x11 builds to translate those calls to GLX/GL calls. Thus, from the perspective of the system, linux-x64x11 builds now appear to use GLX/GL. This change was made because GLX/GL was generally found to have better desktop support than EGL/GLES2. The logic for this is added in the Starboard enable_glx_via_angle.gypi file.

Split base.gypi into cobalt_configuration.gypi and base_configuration.gypi

Up until now, both Cobalt-specific build configuration options as well as application-independent Starboard build configuration options were mixed together within base.gypi. They have now been split apart, and the application independent options have been moved into Starboard under base_configuration.gypi. The Cobalt-specific options have been left in Cobalt, though renamed to cobalt_configuration.gypi.

Moved tizen to contrib/tizen.
