Event waiting with no windows documentation / code discrepancy #1317
Currently the event processing documentation states that:
Even when you have no windows, event polling needs to be done in order to receive monitor connection events.
However the code for both glfwWaitEvents() and glfwPostEmptyEvent() require a window present to work. This should likely either be documented or fixed. See this thead on event loops without windows for reasoning behind why it might be preferable to handle this by making the event loop work without windows if this is possible on all platforms.
This appears to be related to issue #1281.
I would be able to handle the windows implementation, but am not familiar enough with the other backend event processing (I know it's a bit of a minefield from experience) if a fix is desired.
