Fair warning, I'm about to remove glew from the repository and from now on it will be obtained via your package manager like the rest of ENIGMA's dependencies.

Josh felt it appropriate to warn everybody, and I agree. If you update to master now you will need to have glew installed:

Quote from: Ubuntu apt-get Glew
sudo apt-get install libglew-dev
Quote from: Arch Pacman Glew
pacman -Sy glew
Quote from: MSYS2 Pacman Glew
pacman -Sy mingw-w64-x86_64-glew
Quote from: Mac Brew Glew
brew install glew

This is important because ENIGMA should not distribute its dependencies this way. For one, they are not our code and distort the code coverage, and second they end up getting really old and crufty (like the current glew) which also leads to security vulnerabilities.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.
