    Hi Guys.Several month ago,when GLFW3 was still under dev I asked if it's possible to init windowless context.The answer I got was :"Will be possible in GLFW3". So does GLFW3 contains such an option?

    No, but you can create a hidden window, which will work effectively the same way.

      That is what I am currently doing.But I hoped to get rid of it with the new GLFW...

    Michael, certain platforms (Windows) require a window associated with the context. This is by design of the opengl context implementation of said platforms and can't be circumvented by GLFW.
