FreeTypeGL: Loadable texture fonts for OpenGL.

[ bsd3, deprecated, graphics, library ] [ Propose Tags ]
Deprecated in favor of FTGL

Based on the freetype-gl library, with large modifications.

This is similar to the FTGL ( library, but avoids C++, which makes it easier to wrap and work with in Haskell-land.

Unfortunately, it seems not to perform as well as FTGL on some setups.

NOTE: Most of the demos and C-side documentation are out-of-date, as the C side was heavily modified, without updating many of the demos or the C documentation.
