ANNOUNCE: GtkGLExt 0.2.0

Hello everyone,

GtkGLExt, OpenGL extention to GTK, version 0.2.0 is released.

This release includes the changes of GdkGLConfig interface design and
gtk_widget_ API extensions.

Some bugs also have been fixed.

  * gtk_window_set_gl_capability() tried to set colormap to
    realized GdkWindow. It may cause BadMatch X error on some platfomes
    (for example, IRIX 6.5).

  * Double buffered PFD setup on Win32 platforms.

And then, new demo program viewlw, the LightWave 3D object viewer
that comes with GtkGLArea, have been included.
It is originally written by Janne Lof, and ported by Alif Wahid.

Could you please try it and tell me your comments?
