Update: opengl-1.1.0-7

Hi there,

I've prepared new binary and source tarballs for the OpenGL package. You can upload them from the folloing URLs:

e464f3ce1cfa144dd8afafa11e0d91de *opengl-1.1.0-7-src.tar.bz2
f64a9de073352343c0abc704edad7d23 *opengl-1.1.0-7.tar.bz2
2b3463cd18b1860c93231b63fc3767cd *setup.hint

Version 1.1.0-5 and older may be deleted.

I'm ready to send an announcement when it appears on the mirrors.

Excerpts from the README:

What has changed since opengl-1.1.0-6

gl.h and glu.h have been withdrawn from the package as they are now part of
the w32api package. The w32api package is now required.

GLUT has been upgraded from 3.7.3 to 3.7.6 . Man pages are now included in
usr/share/man/man3 .

GLUI and GLUIX are now compiled for use with g++ 3.3.1 .

Documentation has been moved to usr/share/doc/opengl-1.1.0 .

Examples are provided in usr/share/doc/opengl-1.1.0/GLUIexamples and
usr/share/doc/opengl-1.1.0/GLUTexamples .

When will there be an opengl-1.2 or opengl-1.3 or opengl-1.4 package ? ----------------------------------------------------------------------

When Microsoft will provide an opengl32.dll for OpenGL version
1.2, 1.3, or 1.4 . Sadly, that probably means never. But if you have up-to-
date graphic-card drivers that support those version of OpenGL, you can load
1.2+ functions dynamically. Look in an OpenGL forum, such as:

to learn how to do it.
