I've just uploaded PyOpenGL 3.0.0b6 to SourceForge and PyPI. At this
point there's not really much I'm intending to change before the 3.0.0
final release. We now have support for extensions up to the OpenGL 3.0
release, we should run on Win32 and Linux at least. We should be
compatible with py2exe/pyinstaller/py2app.
From here on out what we need is testing on various platforms, with
various software configurations. I wouldn't be surprised if we find
some bugs if there's no Numpy installed, or that we'll get unhappy
results if you don't have GLUT or GLE and try to use them. I'd also
suspect that our GLX/WGL/AGL wrapper is pretty unusable at this point
(my not having any code that really tries to use it). There are likely
dozens of extensions that are also in need of tweaked wrappers.
In theory I might look at doing some optimizations or some more cleanup,
but it's been years since we had a final release, and that can likely
wait for a 3.0.1 release. With that said:
to setup PyOpenGL afresh, or
easy_install -U PyOpenGL
If show-stopping bugs show up, we may need another beta, but at this
point I don't know of any show-stoppers to get in the way. BTW, the
online documentation has been updated to cover the OpenGL 2.1 version
of OpenGL, with links to a wider range of PyOpenGL-using Open Source
projects. If you'd like your project added to the set of sample-code
projects and you have an online source-code-control viewing system, just
let me know.
 April 30. 2005 is the day I started work in earnest on replacing the
SWIG-based PyOpenGL with a ctypes implementation... I can't claim to
have been working solidly that whole time, however.
