1IMPORTANT NOTE: Whilst the OSG will compile cleanly with the basic VC++6.0
2and its own STL implementation, the OSG will crash regularily due to bugs
3in VC++6.0's STL. VC++6.0's STL is horribly broken and therefore is *NOT*
4supported. Do not attempt to use the OSG in conjunction with native VC++6.0
5STL implemention.

7The supported combinations are:
8
9    1.Visual Studio7.0 .NET
10    2.Visual Studio6.0 + Dinkumware's STL bug fix patches
11    3.Visual Studio6.0 + STLport
12   
13For details on how to patch VisualStudio6.0 read the doc/install.html
14documentation.

16Several of the plugins and demoes, and two of the core libraries - osgText
17and osgGLUT require external dependancies.  Full details on where to obtain
18these can be found in doc/dependancies.html.
