Extglgen extension loader library bug fixes

Extglgen is a popular tool to generate an OpenGL library to load and use all OpenGL extension functions up to OpenGL 1.5 that are defined in the SGI glext.h header file. In the latest release, the generated library does not solely rely on wglGetProcAddress to return NULL if an extension is not supported, but it first checks the OpenGL extension string.

Generating Outlines in OpenGL

This tutorial describes two techniques to outline 3D objects using the OpenGL API. The first involves the use of Polygon Offsets, and the second involves the use of the Stencil Buffer. Outlining objects on the screen can be used in CAD system to show that an object is currently selected or to improve the display of densely triangulated objects where an outline mode can be a way of portraying the shape of an object to a user without overcomplicated wireframe rendering.
