The code is safe. OpenGL applications
that don't make use of this new feature are unaffected.

Please respond to
[eclipse-pmc] Request to fix bug 136515
- Support shared context for GLCanvas
A number of users have complained of our lack of support
for shared context in GLCanvas. Adding this feature for them is very simple,
requires minimal code changes and can be done in such a way that there
is no impact to existing users. To fix the bug we need to add one field
to our API in GLData (patch attached to bug report).
Very Low. The patch adds a field to our GLData class. By default the field
is null and unless you set it, the behavior of GLCanvas is the same as
it has always been. Any users that need to use shared OpenGL contexts currently
need to get and modify SWT source code and run with their own modified
This is a performance improvement to users that can take advantage of this
new feature. It has no affect on clients that do not use it.
