Seeking Development Information

Hi everyone.

I have been looking around the site trying to find the latest stable release version and determine what versions of OpenGL it supports. I know the latest and greatest version out is 4.3. I don't expect that to be supported yet, but I would hope version 4.1 is. I noticed the download on the home page has a date of 10-06-2010, so I will assume version 4.1 is the latest version supported by that release.

I guess what I'm looking for overall is information on the current development and if there is any information about, or a road-map of, what is coming down the pipeline. Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you.

OpenGL 4.1 is supported.

I cannot say much more than already said here besides that I now have a DX11 capable CPU and will look into 4.2/4.3 and hacking a few examples together when Intels OpenGL driver arrives.

This is only the latest release build available. Note that there are up-to-the-minute nightly builds (http://sourceforge.net/projects/opentk/files/opentk/nightly/) available as well as the SVN repository itself (http://www.opentk.com/project/svn) which I would recommend. This source code might not always be stable, but it is up-to-date and obvious errors are fixed quickly. The most recent OpenGL version that is supported is OpenGL 4.2, I think.

Thank you for your replies.

@Inertia
That was an interesting forum post to read. I did not realize the entire development of the OpenTK seems to revolve around The Fiddlers availability. This is a little troubling as I was hoping to use OpenTK in a business project. On the bright side, since 4.1 is fully supported in the release build we should be alright for now.

@mOfl
I thank you for the links to the repository for the most up-to-date source code. I'll look in to the viability of using that source later, but I don't think it will pass the risk management portion of the project I am working on.

Again, thank you very much for the additional information.
