EXT_framebuffer_object (FBO) extension now available

The EXT_framebuffer_object (FBO) extension is the long awaited render-to-texture extension developed by the ARB’s “superbuffers” working group. It defines a simple interface for drawing to rendering destinations other than the buffers provided to the GL by the window-system and enables a form of “offscreen” rendering and “render to texture”. This specification is the evolution of an effort that has its roots in draft proposals such as uberbuffers and render_target.
