New features

  • added OSMesaColorClamp() function/feature

  • added wglGetExtensionStringARB() function


  • GLUT tarball: Starting with 6.4, the GLUT library sources are distributed in a separate tarball. This was done at the request of Linux distro vendors who prefer to use freeglut.

Bug fixes

  • fixed some problems when building on Windows

  • GLw header files weren’t installed by installmesa script (bug 5396)

  • GL/glfbdev.h file was missing from tarballs

  • fixed TNL initialization bug which could lead to crash (bug 5791)
