The name of the repo is poorly chosen: Pasting the corresponding link
into plain text such as a mail, software that auto-detects links in
plain text may think the trailing `-` isn't part of the link (this is
quite obviously the case with Thunderbird).

I would recommend renaming the repo to, e.g., "Blender-Cpp".

You're not very familiar with C++, are you?

One property of C++ is that there is no garbage collection in the
language itself, and you'll have to actively release all memory you
allocate. Thus, in the main() function,

    int main(int argc,char *argv[]){
        FXApp application("foxray",FXString::null);
        new ImageWindow(&application);
        return application.run();

the `new ImageWindow(&application);` will allocate memory for, and
create, an object of type `ImageWindow`, but makes no provision to
remember the address of the memory allocated, so there is no way to
release the memory later.

You probably want to do something like this:

    ImageWindow myWindow = new ImageWindow(...);
    delete myWindow;

One memory leak eliminated. I'll have a look whether I can find some more.
