March 10th, 2012:
Work has begun on implementing a C++ interface for OpenGL context creation and management.
April 14th, 2012:
A smart pointer class with reference counting has been committed to the repo. (you can consider this to be the engine's first proper code)
C++ interface for OpenGL context creation has been scrapped, working around with the GLFW library for windowing, GL context creation, and likely input as well.
Reason for edit: Update on smart pointer class and GL context creation + windowing.
