Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 165909
update to 2.4.0
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:11 EST
As of 2005-06-09, freeglut 2.4.0 is out. "Numerous bug fixes" according to
the release notes. Can we get this version into rawhide?
I've been planning on reviewing the new freetype release, and trying
to determine wether it is best to update it to the new release, or
to move it out of Fedora Core and into Fedora Extras.
Last time I checked, there was only one or two minor things in Core
that linked to glut, and they were expendible, or able to disable
the glut requirement with a config option. I'm not sure if that is
still the case or not though.
I think freeglut might fit better into the Extras repo, and also be
more likely to receive more frequent updates there.
er... s/freetype/freeglut/ everywhere above. A very common typo I make
as I used to maintain both packages. ;o)
freeglut-2.4.0-1 has been built in Fedora Core devel (rawhide).
