GIMP 2.0 normal map and DDS plug-ins use OpenGL API for display

The normalmap plug-in for GIMP 2.0.x converts images into RGB normal maps uses the OpenGL API to display a dynamic 3D preview of a per-pixel lit quad textured using the generated normal map.  The DDS plug-in allows you to load and save images in DirectDraw Surface (DDS) format. It uses the OpenGL API and your graphics card to compress/decompress images using the ARB_texture_compression extension, as well as generate mipmap chains using the SGIS_generate_mipmap extension.
