This relatively new library and SDK is interesting!
It's a cross-platform GUI toolkit with 2D and 3D graphics, networking, etc.
It also includes a new programming language called eC.
Elegant code and performance are among the goals of the project.
A small collection of little and not so little games is included in the samples.

Ecere SDK

how about bullet physics?
http://bulletphysics.org/

and not so much being a library, but an XML schema:
http://www.collada.org/

we added its functionality to our engine, because blender and others innately provide the functionality to export to the collada scheme, which offers a standardized export from different 3d modelling programs, and delivers all properties you could wish for.

For Game UI needs, take a look at OtterUI - it's a free for non-commercial use UI solution. It features a standalone UI Layout and Animation editor as well as a minimal C/C++ API with precompiled libs for iOS, Android, PC, as well as a Unity Plugin (PC, MacOS, and iOS).

The Library is a cross-platform and engine-agnostic UI library, meaning you can build your UI once and easily port it to different platforms and engines - it doesn't "lock" you into any particular engine, platform or technology :)

This list is really good and as I march onwards checking out different libraries I shall be sure to us this.

One thing, I'd like to point out, your links to hxRender are broken and I actually can't find any other downloads for it on the internet. Does anyone know where I could find it and/or find another library that is SDL compatible and can rotate images in real time at a reasonable speed? I'm not expecting to actually rotate images in real time since most of the things I plan on rotating probably have few enough frames so that they can simply be cached, but it would be nice to have this capability just in case.
