List of OpenGL driver workarounds used by Magnum.
Driver workarounds used by a particular app are listed in the engine startup log such as here:
Renderer: GeForce GT 740M/PCIe/SSE2 by NVIDIA Corporation OpenGL version: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 390.25 Using optional features: GL_ARB_ES2_compatibility GL_ARB_direct_state_access ... Using driver workarounds: no-forward-compatible-core-context no-layout-qualifiers-on-old-glsl nv-zero-context-profile-mask ...
These identifiers correspond to the strings in the below listing. For debugging and diagnostic purpose it's possible to disable particular workarounds by passing their identifier string to the
--magnum-disable-workarounds command-line option. See Command-line options for more information.
