GluX is a cross-platform, easy-to-use OpenGL extension loader. It offers a very simple mechanism for loading and using OpenGL extensions.

It allows your code to compile under Windows and Linux even if your video card doesn't support the OpenGL extensions used by your program.

At run time, gluX will detect if required extensions are present or not.

Here are some key features of "gluX":
gluX is available for Windows and Linux
gluX loading mechanism allows to distingusih between required and optional extensions.
gluX is extensible: its source code is generated from extension headers (glext.h, glxext.h and wglext.h).
gluX integrates an extension profile mechanism to test on the same computer application behaviour with different hardware configuration (more)
gluX is designed to ease development: readable error messages, extension status report, etc ...
gluX is free and comes with full source code

What's New in This Release:
Fixed a bug preventing WGL extensions from being detected (!) Thanks to Cort Stratton for pointing this one out.
Updated gluxinfo accordingly.
