OglExt is a free OpenGL extension library, enabling the easy access of all functionality up to OpenGL version 2.0 as well as API functions of more than 270 OpenGL extensions. OglExt library was initially written for Microsoft Windows but works for Linux and MacOS X as well.
OpenGL developers for the Windows operating system usually know the problem: The official OpenGL library only supports version 1.1 of the OpenGL specification. However, todays graphics hardware supports OpenGL version 2.0 and a lot OpenGL extensions. To access such functionality, you have to determine the entry point for each function you want to use via wglGetProcAddress() or glXGetProcAddressARB(). Even worse, for Microsoft Windows you have to do this for each OpenGL rendering context, because the entry points may differ for different pixel formats.
By using OglExt, you don't have to care about this anymore, because the extension library manages all the above for over 200 OpenGL extensions.
What's New in This Release:
This release fixes a minor bug in the parsing of functions that have pointers as return types.
Additionally, the project compiles on Visual Studio .NET 2005.
