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 is distributed under modified BSD licenses, and the header file generator is under the GNU GPL.

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.
