There are many methods within the API which take arrays but don't have equivalent 
methods for taking Buffers. Methods like glMaterialfv and glLightfv should allow the user 
to pass in the material parameters as Buffers as opposed to arrays because many times 
when loading models the data will be segmented in Buffers that would be more cleanly 
passed into these methods as opposed to unpacking them into arrays and passing them to 
these methods.

GlueGen has been updated to understand conversions from non-void* C
primitive pointer types to java.nio.Buffer subclasses. Some new
directives have been added to the JavaConfiguration class to control
emission of java.nio variants on a slightly finer grain, while also
allowing the default behavior to be changed to emit many more
combinations of java.nio and Java primitive array overloadings for
these functions. glSelectBuffer and glFeedbackBuffer have been made
NIO-only. The glue code for glEdgeFlagPointerEXT was also incorrect
and has been fixed by this change.
