GLFW Development Question

I’ve been using GLUT/FreeGLUT/OpenGLUT for a while however it seems as if none of these are being developed.

It’s great to see that GLFW has active developers.

I was wondering if someone could tell me whether any of the other OpenGL frameworks are being developed ATM. From what I can see, they’re not, which means that GLFW is the only active framework.

As far as I can tell, none of the other ones have made a release for a couple of years, but then neither had we until very recently and development of GLFW was still active during most of that time, so you’d have to go ask the individual projects whether or not they’re working on new releases.

Hello !

as far as i know, GLUT/openGLUT are long gone … only remains freeGLUT, which dev-list seems still active

My advice : stick with GLFW :wink:

Thanks for the info. I’m going to move to GLFW.

It’s on the TODO but not in 2.6, primarily due to an unfinished discussion on Unicode.
