Few Questions

Does glfw have a “getVersion” function?

Is there a way to hide border (some apis call it hide window decorations).

Since threads and textures are being removed; anyone have any suggestions on
some libs (with C wrappers) for both ? What sounds apis you guys like, just
use OpenAL directly?

For threading, you may be interested in
TinyThread++ (for C++) and TinyCThread
(for C). The latter is only available in a [Subversion repo](http://tinythre
ad.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/tinythread/trunk/tinycthread/) right now (no
release), but it works quite well.

For imaging, here’s a tiny library (haven’t tried it myself yet):

Use glfwGetVersion.

Undecorated windows are coming in GLFW 3.

I use OpenAL and libpng.

Thanks; but glfwGetVersion reports the OpenGL version not version of the glfw
api? It keeps coming back as 3.3 rev 0.

That’s very strange. Which version of GLFW is this?

This is the Win32 binary package of GLFW 2.7.

I’m using the MinGW .dll
