This year we have tried to keep pace with a growing number of innovative techniques using OpenGL and have added a significant amount of new material as well as improvements and corrections to the old material. As usual, we've tried to do a lot in a short period of time and are grateful for the enthusiastic assistance we have received:
Some cool new ideas were contributed by Kurt Akeley, Brian Cabral, Amy Gooch, Wolfgang Heidrich, Detlev Stalling, and Hansong Zhang.
Our reviewers this year included Dave Shreiner, Paul Strauss, David Yu, and Hansong Zhang. Dany Galgani, Bob Brown, and Linda Rae Sande helped with the production. Bowen 'Cheetah' Goletz helped with the logistics of sharing the source material over the internet. We are also indebted to those who have made tools such as TeX/LaTeX, GhostScript/Ghostview, and cvs freely available on the three different computing platforms that we used for preparing the notes.
We would also like to thank John Airey, Amy Gooch, Paul Heckbert, Wolfgang Heidrich, Mark Segal, Detlev Stalling, Michael Teschner, Bruce Walter, and Tim Wiegand for providing material for inclusion in the reprints section.
