I am looking at OpenGL as a possible key technology for a major new project and I would like some more information on support in the Windows environment.
It looks to me as though the Windows OpenGL DLLs are all dated from several years ago. Are there more recent OpenGL libraries for Windows which are different from the “standard” ones that come with Windows?
Will OpenGL run on Windows 7?
Is development of OpenGL support on Windows done by non-Microsoft organisations and people? I am hoping we are not relying on Microsoft to implement it with each version of Windows.
Given that you seem to imply that the OpenGL implementation is done through the graphics card, does that mean that only certain cards will support OpenGL and that it simply won’t run on machines without the “right” cards?
