Many programming books, including the Red Book for 1.2, make reference to tesselation features that are only available in OpenGL version 1.3. Is OpenGL 1.3 available for download anywhere (if so, where)? The latest version I've been able to download for Microsoft Windows (98/NT/2000) is 1.22.

Thanks,

I'm usually pretty good about keeping track of things, but in this case, I can't remember exactly where I found the OpenGL download. My version function may be reporting version 1.22 because I also downloaded glut. I believe I got glut at the following URL:
http://www.sgi.com/software/opengl/glut.html

Hope that helps...

Of course, this still leaves the question as to why neither the OpenGL or sgi sites have software downloads for development using OpenGL 1.3

You got it wrong. the 1.3 isn't for opengl, it is for GLU, the utility library.

Where the heck can one download OpenGL files for WindowsNT? I've searched SGI and MicroSoft websites, I just can't find where I can download it! Reinstalling NT didn't even restore them. I'm talking about the basics, gl.h, glu.h, etc.

Please advise (anyone). Thanks.

Old thread is old.

You don't download OpenGL because OpenGL is not software.

You install drivers from your hardware manufacturer, then use something like GLEW (http://glew.sourceforge.net/) to access functionality higher than 1.1.
