Vispy 0.2.1

Small fix in the setup script. The buf prevented pip from working.

Vispy 0.2

In this release we focussed on improving and finalizing the object oriented OpenGL interface vispy.gloo. Some major (backward incompatible) changes were done. However, from this release we consider the vispy.gloo package relatively stable and we try to minimize backward incompatibilities.

Changes in more detail:

  • vispy.oogl is renamed to vispy.gloo
  • is moved to since most users will use gloo to interface with OpenGL.
  • Improved (and thus changed) several parts of the gloo API.
  • Some parts of gloo were refactored and should be more robust.
  • Much better coverage of the test suite.
  • Compatibility with Python 2.6 (Jerome Kieffer)
  • More examples and a gallery on the website to show them off.

Vispy 0.1.0

First release. We have an initial version of the object oriented interface to OpenGL, called vispy.oogl.
