    Hi,

    This was something that was being worked on for Cygwin/X a while ago.  I think Xming may have a version that still attempts this….though I know that it also has a Mesa based version.  Do you know how hard this would be to attempt with your version?  Is it something where you just set a configuration variable and see what happens (like XWIN_GLX_WINDOWS in the hw/xmn directory Makefile.am/.in)?  For me it is amazing that anyone can figure this out.  :)

    Thanks for this software!

    David

    I have been looking into this but did not find an easy way yet to get hardware acceleration for opengl in.

    Current version on trunk (revision 318) has support for native opengl using acceleration. However, it is only working in multi window mode (-multiwindow) together with indirect rendering (export LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1) and when the -wgl option is supplied.
