GtkGLExt 1.0.0


GtkGLExt 1.0.0


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. 


I'm happy to announce the first stable release 1.0.0 of GtkGLExt.

I would like to thank the various contributors to this project
and everybody who reported bugs.

Special thanks to:

  GNOME community ;-)

  Janne Lof: Original author of GtkGLArea. GtkGLArea gives me a lot 
             of valuable information for developing GtkGLExt.

- Added --gdk-gl-force-indirect GdkGLExt library option.
  Application users can use it to force GdkGLExt library to use 
  indirect rendering context.

- Added --gdk-gl-no-standard-colormap GdkGLExt library option.
  If this option is passed, GdkGLExt library doesn't try to find a
  standard RGB colormap using XmuLookupStandardColormap().

- Added --disable-sgi-fast-atoms configure option to disable SGI's
  fast X atoms optimization feature.

- Added new share-lists.c display list sharing example.


- Minor fix in gtkglwidget.c.

- Cleaned up sources.
