Apparently, the cocos2dx guy introduced a new class, Value, which I can see lost of “value” coming from it (I had to get that out of my system).

In any case, CCString is gone… and so is the awesome createWithFormat method, which allowed us to create string on the fly with format, like the really awesome languages.

Fret not! There is actually a replacement for that in the new API:

std::string string = StringUtils::format("Yaaay!! %s %s %s", "This", "is", "Aweeeesome!!")
