GLEW 1.5.2 With OpenGL 3.2 Support


OpenGL 3

The new version of GLEW (OpenGL Extension Wrangler Library) has been released. This new version adds the support of OpenGL 3.2 with 42 new extensions.

GLEW is a very useful library that does all the dirty work of checking and initializing all OpenGL extensions supported by the graphics card.


* New extensions:

o GL_AMD_draw_buffers_blend
o GL_AMD_performance_monitor
o GL_AMD_texture_texture4
o GL_AMD_vertex_shader_tessellator
o GL_APPLE_aux_depth_stencil
o GL_APPLE_object_purgeable
o GL_APPLE_rgb_422
o GL_APPLE_row_bytes
o GL_APPLE_vertex_program_evaluators
o GL_ARB_compatibility
o GL_ARB_copy_buffer
o GL_ARB_depth_clamp
o GL_ARB_draw_buffers_blend
o GL_ARB_draw_elements_base_vertex
o GL_ARB_fragment_coord_conventions
o GL_ARB_provoking_vertex
o GL_ARB_sample_shading
o GL_ARB_seamless_cube_map
o GL_ARB_shader_texture_lod
o GL_ARB_sync
o GL_ARB_texture_cube_map_array
o GL_ARB_texture_gather
o GL_ARB_texture_multisample
o GL_ARB_texture_query_lod
o GL_ARB_uniform_buffer_object
o GL_ARB_vertex_array_bgra
o GL_ATI_meminfo
o GL_EXT_provoking_vertex
o GL_EXT_separate_shader_objects
o GL_EXT_texture_snorm
o GL_NV_copy_image
o GL_NV_parameter_buffer_object2
o GL_NV_shader_buffer_load
o GL_NV_texture_barrier
o GL_NV_transform_feedback2
o GL_NV_vertex_buffer_unified_memory
o WGL_AMD_gpu_association
o WGL_ARB_create_context_profile
o WGL_NV_copy_image
o GLX_ARB_create_context_profile
o GLX_EXT_swap_control
o GLX_NV_copy_image

* Bug fixes:

o DOS line endings for windows .zip archives only.
o glTransformFeedbackVaryings arguments.
o Resource leak in glewinfo and visualinfo tools.
o WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN preprocessor pollution.
o Fixed version detection for GLEW_VERSION_2_1 and GLEW_VERSION_3_0.
o MesaGLUT glut.h GLAPIENTRY dependency.
o glFramebufferTextureLayer correction.
o OSX compiler warnings resolved.
o Cygwin linking to opengl32 by default, rather than X11 OpenGL.
o SnowLeopard (OSX 10.6) gl.h detection.
o Use $(STRIP) consistently.
