Patch partially applied in r3761:

We could enable it if it passes all the tests, assigning to ahuillet to review the status as I can't find any outstanding opengl issues.

Patch partially applied in r3761:

No bugs yet, but I haven't used it excessively.

As far as I can tell there still are issues with Windows 7. Do you want me to check with latest release?

Please check, see also #372

afarr/SmO: is it usable on windows, or should it still be disable by default?

(I am tempted to enabled it on posix)

Smo and I are both having issues (like with osx, #379, logs posted at comment 14) with sound dropping with the windows client (r3908). It doesn't seem to be opengl related, but it's hard to decide how well the opengl is working when sound keeps dropping. (Seems ok?)

How so? Why not just leave the sound off for testing GL?

FYI: for testing, the best thing I have found for stress testing is to run one or both of:

Well, once sound issues are set aside, OpenGL is working very nicely with win client (r3971). .avi file plays well, gtkperf displays errors elegantly (don't seem to have it installed), was even able to watch silent youtube video at the same time as playing a .avi file, with only the smallest bit of video chop on either.

Looks good.

I'm still not 100% convinced that OpenGL rendering is 100% stable (not necessarily because of our code - could well be (py)gtkgl or the drivers or X11 or a combination thereof - but I am keeping it enabled by default for this release... we'll see what falls out.
