The openGL package has now been marked as obsolete.


Please note that it is still possible build programs using Windows' native openGL interface by

using the w32api package.


Users of the native GLUT library should adapt their programs to build with the freeGLUT packages.

The native GLUT library was based on Nate Robins' GLUT, which has not been maintained in years,

while freeGLUT is alive and kicking. freeGLUT requires the use of an X server.


Thanks to anyone who helped supporting the openGL package over the years.
