I noticed that the Visual Studio project file that comes with glew is from VC6, which is over 12 years old. I was wondering if you could upgrade it to VS 2010, which MS makes available for free. I'd be willing to help with this if needed.

The reason that I ask is I am making an open source project which depends on glew, and is meant to be built in VS 2010. However, I can't tell people to add the glew project to their solution because it only has an outdated VC6 project file included. When converting the file, a bug in VS 2010 makes it unusable:


This is forcing me to make the glew source directly a part of my project, which is undesirable.

On a general note, shouldn't project files be kept current, or is there a specific reason this one was never upgraded?
