GTK4 Receives Better Windows OpenGL Support

Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 30 October 2016 at 08:37 AM EDT. 2 Comments
With GTK Scene Kit landing and various OpenGL improvements coming to the GTK+ tool-kit, GNOME developers have found the need to improve the OpenGL Windows support.

On Friday some OpenGL improvements for Windows landed in the GTK+ Git code-base. This work affected the GDKGL implementation and now supports creating legacy contexts as well as finer-grainted attributes and as part of that support for anti-aliasing. These changes are needed for GTK4's GTKGL to work on Windows.
