Initially, there was an interface library called BCGWin (I think), but that has
been removed for the most part. I don't think there are any other 3rd party
libraries that we used (it's been years I checked).
I believe the biggest missing chunk at the moment is integration with POV-Ray
3.7 and beyond.

I still use Moray quite regularly for 3D printing parts design (I wrote an STL
import/export plugin) and have solved some of the other issues it had on Win 10
(mainly OpenGL glitching).

I think we will see some effort on this front shortly, I've indicated to Chris
that I'm willing to help with getting a updated version done.
