OpenGL Extension Wrangler Library
|Initial release||12 December 2002|
2.1.0 / 31 July 2017
|License||Modified BSD licenses / GNU GPL|
The OpenGL Extension Wrangler Library (GLEW) is a cross-platform C/C++ library that helps in querying and loading OpenGL extensions. GLEW provides efficient run-time mechanisms for determining which OpenGL extensions are supported on the target platform. All OpenGL extensions are exposed in a single header file, which is machine-generated from the official extension list. GLEW is available for a variety of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, IRIX, and Solaris.
GLEW 2.1.0 added support for OpenGL 4.6.
The OpenGL rendering path of the GTK+ Scene Graph Kit uses libepoxy instead of GLEW.
