by Team GRRLIB
GRRLIB is a C/C++ 2D Graphics library for Wii application developers. It is essentially a wrapper which presents a friendly interface to the Nintendo GX core.

-First support to 3D functions
-GRRLIB_CompoStart and GRRLIB_CompoEnd for real GX compositing with transparency support
-GRRLIB_Screen2Texture is now fully optimized
-USB_Gecko output facilities
-GRRLIB_Compose was deleted since it was not fully using GX
-GRRLIB_GetColor was deleted, the RGBA macro should be used instead
-Lot of new sample code :
--3D_CubedTileDemo (How to use dynamic texturing)
--3D_sample1 (A simple rotating flat cube)
--3D_sample2 (A simple rotating textured cube)
--3D_sample3 (A textured cube and compositing)
--3D_sample4 (A complex object rotating)
--basic_drawing (How to use some basic GRRLIB functions)
--bitmap_fx (Effects ShowRoom)
--blending (How to use blending mode)
