OGLplus is a collection of open-source, cross-platform libraries which implement an object-oriented facade over the modern OpenGL® and also OpenAL® and EGL C-language APIs. It provides wrappers which automate resource and object management, error handling and make the use of these libraries in C++ safer and more convenient. Among other things this release brings support for EXT_direct_state_access Buffers, FBOs, RBOs and VAOs, support for several other GL extensions, new examples and improvements to the build system.
