This is a two step task:
1.) make use of shaders and replace all parts of the fixed function pipeline that have been deprecated in OpenGL 2.0 (target version OpenGL 2.1)
2.) improve the code and switch to a 3.2 core context, see chart2/opengl/README.deprecated for features that should not be used in a 3.2 core context
The development for the second point should happen in a feature branch as it will break temporarily the feature on OSX until we don't use any legacy features anymore
Make it an easy hack.

Code for the OGL Transitions are in slideshow/source/engine/OGLTrans/generic and the shaders that are already part of the feature are in slideshow/opengl/
I'd like to work on this bug, as Michael and I are going to work on the OpenGL implementations in the upcoming months.
Stefan, you don't seem to be working on this any more?
