Have to do another beta for PyOpenGL
Last update on .
There have been so many changes to try to improve performance and packaging that we're going to have to have another beta for PyOpenGL. Beta 8 is up on SourceForge. It includes Win32 installers for both the Python code and the (optional) Cython accelerator modules (for Python 2.5). Probably should split out the accelerator modules into a separate download package from PyOpenGL at some point. None of that has been tested, however, I'll try to get time to do a test cycle tomorrow.

Thanks for your great work on PyOpenGL. I'm having trouble installing beta 8, has the build process changed? For previous betas I just ran "python setup.py build" and "python setup.py install" and it would install an egg in my site-packages directory. (Python 2.6 on Mac OS X 10.5, if that matters). With beta 8, setup.py first gives me an error on the "import metadata" line. It looks like the metadata.py file is missing, so I copied it from the beta 6 source. Then I can build and try to install, but the only file that gets written to site-packages is "PyOpenGL-3.0.0b8-py2.6.egg-info"; the actual egg isn't created.
Any help is much appreciated...

metadata.py was, indeed, missing from the source distributions. I've re-released the source packages to fix that.
Can you confirm that there's no "OpenGL" directory in your site-packages?
When I attempt with the fixed package in a virtualenv on AMD64 linux with no PYTHONPATH it installs the OpenGL directory as well as the PyOpenGL-3.0.0b8-py2.5.egg-info file.

That worked, I do get an OpenGL directory. I didn't notice because my app was still using the 3.0.0b6 egg, but after removing the egg it sees b8. Thanks!
