LibUFO GUI library (for OpenGL) [LGPL]

Crazy Eddie's GUI (another GUI lib, frequently used with the Ogre engine, although technically it doesn't have to be)

And can I suggest that you database-ize the list, and provide a suggestions form on the page? (and a way to see the list of libs suggested through the form before they've been verified)

Thanks for all the suggestions. Most of the additions have been made. I won't be changing to a database-driven site as I'd like to word all the submissions myself to ensure consistency, and I doubt it will grow to much more than twice the size it is now anyway. There are only so many free game development libraries, after all. We'll see how it goes.

I suggest you add Ogg vorbis lib, as it is not always included with audio libs. And you should list some video libs too. ffmpeg is good (though has some patent issues), xvid is good (again, possible patent issues), Theora is also good and has no patent issues. Dirac is an up and coming codec that should prove to be good some day.

first of all: great list, Kylotan! thank you very much for your efforts!
and, of course, thanks to everyone else who has contributed so far [smile]

i've also been working on a similar, small list (mainly for personal use) but i havent updated it for quite a while. it is by far neither as nice designed nor as good categorized as your list but maybe you want to have a look nonetheless, as there may be some further libraries etc. :)
