From: Luke Benstead
Subject: OpenGL 3.0 Context Creation

I've attached a patch which implements OpenGL 3.x context creation on
the latest SVN. I've added two options to SDL_GL_SetAttribute, these
are SDL_GL_CONTEXT_MAJOR_VERSION and SDL_GL_CONTEXT_MINOR_VERSION.
These default to 2 and 1 respectively. If the major version is less
than 3 then the current context creation method is used, otherwise the
appropriate new context creation function is called (depending on the
platform).

Sample code:

    if (SDL_Init(SDL_INIT_VIDEO) != 0) {
        printf("Unable to initialize SDL: %s\n", SDL_GetError());
        return 1;
    }

    SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_CONTEXT_MAJOR_VERSION, 3); //Without these 2 lines, SDL will create a GL 2.x context
    SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_CONTEXT_MINOR_VERSION, 0);
    SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_DOUBLEBUFFER, 1);

    SDL_Surface* screen = SDL_SetVideoMode( 640, 480, 16, SDL_OPENGL | SDL_FULLSCREEN );


I've implemented context creation on both Win32 and X and run basic
tests on both. This patch doesn't provide access to all the options
allowed by the new context creation (e.g. shared contexts, forward
compatible contexts) but they can be added pretty easily.
