    For a project we would like to switch from freeglut to glfw. However, glfw 2.7
    still has some minor bugs. Therefore, we would like to wait until glfw 3 is
    released. Is there any approximation when glfw 3 could be released as a stable
    release? Is it years, months or weeks away?

    Which bugs are you referring to? Are they in the bug tracker? Bug fixes are in
    general applied in parallel to both GLFW 2.7 and 3.0.

    GLFW 3 is months away, at least, not because the existing parts aren't stable
    but because not all parts are in yet.

    They are in the bugtracker. Mostly the mouse. Most of the comments said that
    it was fixed in glfw 3. That's why I got the impression they weren't applied
    to glfw 2.7.

    It could be that I forgot to apply the bug fix to 2.7, or that I forgot to
    note in the tracker entry when I applied it, or that the fix was incompatible
    with the older architecture of 2.7. Without knowing the tracker entry IDs, I
    can't say.
