OpenGL (on Linux) support for the 3D transitions.  Source code can be 
found in main/slideshow/source/engine/OGLTrans

The issue is closed (support for OpenGL has been implemented) but I 
don't know about the current status (if it still works).


The windows support (Direct3D) has never been done. Some years ago I 
have made some (successful) experiments in this area but without proper 
support on UI level this feature will remain experimental (and the code 
died with my Oracle computer.)
