ANNOUNCE: GtkGLExt 0.4.0

Hello everyone,

GtkGLExt, OpenGL extension to GTK, version 0.4.0 has been released.

It provides the GDK objects which support OpenGL rendering in GTK,
and gtk_widget API add-ons to make GTK+ widgets OpenGL-capable.
As opposed to Jane Loff's GtkGLArea, it does not provide any OpenGL
widget, but an interface to use OpenGL on *ANY* GTK+ widget. 

This release includes some important interface changes.
The changes are for mainly supporting C++ wrapper, GtkGLExtmm.
Since backwards compatibility has been broken, applications will need
to be modified. 

  * Arguments' order of gdk_gl_context_new() have been
    chaged. The new interface is convenient for C++ wrapper.

  * In connection with above, arguments' order of 
    gtk_widget_set_gl_capability() have been changed.

  * gdk_gl_context_copy() function have been added.

Could you please try it and tell me your comments?

General Information
