The main issue I've had with other libraries is that I never seem to be able to build them right. I also wanted to try out my dynamic resizing algorithm and see how simple and flexible I could make my code. This is actually my first major attempt at GUI programming, so it's also largely a learning project. I'll consider helping an existing library, though.

Speaking of help, if anyone has some OpenGL 3+ experience, the game engine project has a bug I can't sort out.  I'll write up some info if anyone feels like going on a bug hunt.

What's mostly needs to be done with DWT is:

* Updating to later versions of SWT
* Finish the Mac OS X port
* Porting the browser package
* Porting to Linux 64bit
* Possibly port to other platforms

aboout openGL aldacron has written derelict to use it and maybe it will do a lib as GLFW does

I'm actually using Derelict and its OpenGL/SDL bindings. I'm just implementing a layer on top of those.
