FTGL is a free cross-platform Open Source C++ library that uses Freetype2 to simplify rendering fonts in OpenGL applications. FTGL supports bitmaps, pixmaps, texture maps, outlines, polygon mesh, and extruded polygon rendering modes.
Awesome!! The best awaiting release ever.
Well, FTGL works well to have font paint with openGL, but the whole project is really not so good well constructed, a little bit heavy for embeded development. I recommend the opengl font implementation in JGE++.
