I start this when i read in
http://wxhaskell.sourceforge.net/download.html that concerning
binaries for version 0.10.3:
"All packages have ODBC support (but not OpenGL)."
But at least the windows binary (as stated by shelarcy) and the
wxhaskell-bin-powerpc-mac2.6.4-ghc6.8.2-0.10.3-0.dmg have opengl
I tested those two packages my self with code using opengl.
So, is just that the information at the webpage is more restricted
than the packages :-)
