Hi all,

I have committed my initial OpenGL guest support to the public SVN tree:

    * http://www.virtualbox.org/browser/trunk/src/VBox/HostServices/SharedOpenGL

    * http://www.virtualbox.org/browser/trunk/src/VBox/Additions/WINNT/Graphics/OpenGL

Current status:

    * communication framework between guest and host is present
    * simple OpenGL samples are functional; they display their rendered
      output in an external window on the host for testing purposes
    * supported are only Windows guests combined with a Windows host
    * not all OpenGL commands are implemented; most simple ones are


    * Linux host and guest OpenGL support
    * Add OpenGL extensions as reported by the host OS
    * Direct3D emulation using OpenGL

Development of this task is tracked in defect 475 in our bug tracker 

We are looking for external developers with an interest to help us out 
to complete this work.

Kind regards / mit freundlichen Gruessen / Met vriendelijke groet
