OpenGLEAN 0.5 released; Beta status

OpenGLEAN shifts to Beta with the 0.5 release. OpenGLEAN is "a GLUT
gone lean"---but the name also suggests "gleaning" (separating the good
stuff from the chaff). OpenGLEAN is a GLUT family member, based on
OpenGLUT and freeglut, with an eye towards removing deadwood (targeted
as a 1.0 release). This positions OpenGLEAN as a portability
windowing-and-OpenGL library, suitable for new applications. Its
liberal MIT license sets it apart from many other such libraries that
are LGPLed.

See for overview and for the project homepage.

This release introduces some modest enhancements to the technology,
and a significant shift in emphasis on finally exporting non-core
technologies. It is also something of a reference point in
OpenGLEAN's history as a SourceForge project. Having had
project-relative record levels of activity in almost all categories
this month, and passing 1,000 downloads (and an unknown of secondary
distributions from RPM servers, etc.), as well as beginning the
process of creating satellite libraries, it seems time to move this
project into Beta status.
