The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* libglut3-3.4.0-1
* libglut-devel-3.4.0-1

freeglut is a completely OpenSourced alternative to the OpenGL Utility Toolkit 
(GLUT) library.  GLUT was originally written by Mark Kilgard to support the 
sample programs in the second edition OpenGL 'RedBook'.  Since then, GLUT has 
been used in a wide variety of practical applications because it is simple, 
widely available, and highly portable.  GLUT (and hence freeglut) allows the 
user to create and manage windows containing OpenGL contexts on a wide range of 
platforms and also read the mouse, keyboard, and joystick functions.

This is an update to the latest upstream release.
