Glfw 3 eta

anonymous wrote on Thursday, June 28, 2012:

For a project we would like to switch from freeglut to glfw. However, glfw 2.7
still has some minor bugs. Therefore, we would like to wait until glfw 3 is
released. Is there any approximation when glfw 3 could be released as a stable
release? Is it years, months or weeks away?

Which bugs are you referring to? Are they in the bug tracker? Bug fixes are in
general applied in parallel to both GLFW 2.7 and 3.0.

GLFW 3 is months away, at least, not because the existing parts aren’t stable
but because not all parts are in yet.

They are in the bugtracker. Mostly the mouse. Most of the comments said that
it was fixed in glfw 3. That’s why I got the impression they weren’t applied
to glfw 2.7.

It could be that I forgot to apply the bug fix to 2.7, or that I forgot to
note in the tracker entry when I applied it, or that the fix was incompatible
with the older architecture of 2.7. Without knowing the tracker entry IDs, I
can’t say.
