Release Digest: GNOME, April 29, 2003

GtkGLExt 0.99.0

Application
===========

GtkGLExt 0.99.0

Description
===========

GtkGLExt is an OpenGL extension to GTK. 
It provides the GDK objects to support OpenGL rendering in GTK, 
and GtkWidget API add-ons to make GTK+ widgets OpenGL-capable. 

  http://gtkglext.sourceforge.net/

This is the first release candidate for GtkGLExt 1.0.0.

Please try building it on as many different systems as possible, and
send reports of successful compilation to

  gtkglext-develop@lists.sourceforge.net

Information about operating system, distribution, compiler, X version
is all useful.

If all goes smoothly, 1.0.0 will appear in 1 week.

Enhancements
============

  - New _destroy() functions to be used for destroying GLX (WGL)
    resources explicitly without relying on reference counting.

    gdk_gl_context_destroy()
    gdk_gl_window_destroy()
    gdk_gl_pixmap_destroy()

  - Use the latest versions of GNU autotools

Fixes
=====

  - Fixed GLX (WGL) resource management problem in Python 
    bindings. Now underlying GtkGLExt libraries allow PyGTK's 
    relaxed resource management.

  - Fixed Win32 GdkGLConfig for bitmap pixel format.

GNet 2.0.2, 1.1.9

GNet 2.0.2 and 1.1.9 have been released.  GNet 2.0.2 includes RPM and
compile fixes.  GNet 1.1.9 includes RPM fixes and a minor leak fix.

GNet is a simple network library.  It is written in C, object-oriented,
and built upon GLib (1.2 or 2.0).  It is licensed under the GNU LGPL.

The GNet homepage is <<A HREF="http://www.gnetlibrary.org>">http://www.gnetlibrary.org>;

Tarball available.

2.0.2
-----
* RPM fixes (thanks Bas Mevissen!)
* Compile fixes for Sun compiler (thanks Ives Aerts!)

1.1.9
-----
* RPM fixes (thanks Bas Mevissen!)
* Leak fixed in the gserver module


*** GNet 1.1 vs 2.0 Clarification

GNet 2.0 is the current stable branch of GNet.  All new development will
be on GNet 2.0.  GNet 1.1 is the old stable branch.  For new development,
GNet 2.0 should be preferred over GNet 1.1.  Current GNet 1.1 users should
plan to migrate to GNet 2.0 eventually.  GNet 2.0 is not backwards
compatible with GNet 1.1, but migration should be relatively easy.
