I believe openGL ver 1.1 is getting out of date and believe that adding some new functions that will make 3D games made in b4gl enhanced easier although I don't know whether tom will make this upgrade it would be better to add some functions from a more modern version of opengl to give us that little extra boost for making better 3D games.
This and maybe a way to load models easy especially in the .obj format or md2 or something like that.
These are suggestions and I hope tom will have a look at these

i think you to should read up on opengl extensions, you cant just add the functions like tom did for basic opengl stuff, in order to update to a newer opengl version you must have a video card that supports the extensions, and since alot of people that use basic4gl dont have that ability then tom wont add more extension to get up to opengl 1.2-3.0 capabilities. and once again SHORTCUTTING model loading isnt going to happen as i said before this isnt darkbasic, its good practice to load your own models with your own code, and if you really wanna be a good programer you will do just that.
