New OpenTK 1.0 release: 6 October 2010

It's been a while, so grab it while it's hot!

This release fixes various issues reported over the past few months, improves documentation, example code and the installer, and features a brand new build system. (Detailed release notes)

The new system is based on MSBuild and is more maintainable, faster and fully automated: version numbers, installers and and releases can all be generated with a single click. It has been tested on Visual Studio 2010, MonoDevelop 2.4, msbuild 4.0 and xbuild 2.6.7. Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 will no longer be able to build OpenTK.

This is not as bad as it sounds. OpenTK still targets .Net 2.0 and can be used in VS2005 and VS2008 just fine (you just won't be able to build OpenTK itself through those IDEs). This move was necessary for the upcoming .Net 4.0 builds.

The next release will focus on proper OpenGL 3.3/4.1 support and should be ready in about two weeks. A buildbot will supply nightly builds in the meantime (details to be announced shortly).

Till next time!

FYI - You can build the solution using older IDEs (works for me VS2008 unknown for 2005 or earlier) if you modify the .sln file manually.

Open OpenTK.sln in notepad and change the following line:

Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 11.00


Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 10.00

Can't guarantee it works in all cases, but it does for the current build of OpenTK. Enjoy!
