Note: the GLX code in xorg-server-1.5-apple is going to need some
work. The 1.5 branch made one of the API functions we used in 1.4 a
no-op, and now we need to provide a linked list of __GLXconfig AFAIK.
I have a tree with some changes that isn't quite ready. Right now GLX
just has one config, so the number of visuals and fbconfigs is limited.
I will try to do some more work on the __GLXconfig code today.
I also really want to get pbuffer support working too in the X11
libGL, and the 1.5 X server branch. Getting more of the offscreen
rendering code to work, like GLXPixmaps would be great too.
I also noticed that we didn't list that multisampling support was
added to 2.3.2. That took a while to work out, in the libGL and the X
server, but it seems to work in my test cases with 2.3.2.
The behavior of the GL_BACK should probably be noted too. Now that
glDrawBuffer() is more consistent with the glDrawBuffer on other X11
platforms with the wrapper that I wrote to make it use the LEFT and
RIGHT back buffers. This makes Pymol work better with most machines
when GLX_STEREO is available.
