(Apologies - I should have done this announcement a couple of days ago!)
ANNOUNCING: freeglut 2.0.0.
freeglut is a fully OpenSourced clone of Mark Kilgard's GL Utility
Toolkit (GLUT) library. It is released under the Xfree license and
is under active maintenance and development.
freeglut 2.0 is the first version of freeglut to actively expand
on the GLUT 3.7 API. Previous versions were mere clones of GLUT,
from now on, we'll maintain backwards compatibility with GLUT - but
gently expand on the basic functionality.
This release is also a major step towards 100% GLUT compatibility with
many incompatibilities fixed since the last release. With this release,
it's also possibly to compile and link against the original glut.h/libglut.so
and run against freeglut's libglut.so - or vice-versa (presuming of course
that you are not using any of freeglut's new features).
There are almost 100 changes since freeglut 1.x - please read the Changelog
file for details.
Many thanks to the entire freeglut team - and especially to John Fay
who is the team's lead developer.
