NEKit

NEKit is deprecated.

It should still work but I'm not intent on maintaining it anymore. It has many flaws and needs a revamp to be a high-quality library.

The architecture of NEKit is not ideal due to my lack of experience when I was writing it. To make it worse, it's not in its most efficient form as there wasn't a good async io library while people abuse it for simple features that should be just implemented directly or use other lightweight libraries.

NEKit is not, was never intended, and probably will never become a library that simply works correctly out-of-the-box without understanding what it is doing under the hook. Through all these years, one thing I learned is for some function this low level, the developer should understand what oneself is doing. I'm always concerned that people are creating apps that slowing down users' phones unnecessarily because of this library and I feel responsible.

Thanks for everyone who has contributed, used or interested in this library.
