A new version of the GLUT package has been uploaded to Hackage. This is a 
feature release, adding all the shiny new features of the upcoming freeglut 
2.6.0 C library plus a few older bits and pieces which had been missing:

  * Minor tweaks for recent Cabal versions

  * Removal of old GHC build system relics.

  * Added support for OpenGL 3.x context creation (freeglut only)

  * Added support for getModeValues (freeglut extension)

  * Added freeglut-specific full screen API

  * Added freeglut-specific (de-)initialization API

  * Added support for multisampling with given samples per pixel (freeglut)

  * Added support for mouse wheel callback (freeglut)

  * Added support for window state callback (freeglut)

  * Added support for captionless/borderless windows (freeglut 2.6.0)

  * Handle special keys introduced by freeglut 2.6.0

The most important addition is the ability to create versioned context, so you 
can use forward compatible OpenGL 3.1 contexts. Death to the fixed function 
pipeline!! ;-)
