At this time, we use wxWidgets in Cafu to open and manage the OpenGL main window.

This works well, but we may consider some alternatives as well:

Note that we don't need these libs e.g. for font rendering, sound, or networking -- for these, we use dedicated libraries anyway.

    As a side note, regarding SDL, magazine c't 17/2014 had on page 168 a short review about the new book „The Black Art of Multiplatform Game Programming“ by Jazon Yamamoto, featuring SDL 1.2 and (in an appendix) SDL 2.0.
