Khronos Unleashes Cutting-Edge, Cross-Platform Graphics Acceleration with OpenGL 4.0

,----[ Quote ]
| The Khronos Group announced the release of the 
| OpenGLÂ 4.0 specification. This is a 
| significant update to the most widely adopted 
| 2D and 3D graphics API, and includes the GLSL 
| 4.00 update to the OpenGL Shading language 
| allowing developers to access the latest 
| generation of GPU acceleration.


Khronos Releases OpenGL 3.3 & OpenGL 4.0

,----[ Quote ]
| The OpenGL 4.0 specification (along with the 
| OpenGL 3.3 spec) is available for immediate 
| download at OpenGL.org. The OpenGL 3.3 
| specification is designed to bring as much of 
| the new OpenGL 4.0 functionality back into 
| OpenGL 3.x as possible while still retaining 
| compatibility with existing graphics 
| processors. The press release announcing OpenGL 
| 4.0 and 3.3 can be read via the Khronos Group. 



The State Of OpenGL 3.x in Mesa Core

,----[ Quote ]
| While ATI R600 users only recently received
| OpenGL 2.0 hardware support within the open-
| source Radeon 3D stack and there is many more
| OpenGL extensions to be implemented just not
| for the ATI Mesa driver but the other DRI
| drivers as well, Brian Paul has published a
| document that lays out the current state of
| OpenGL 3.x within the classic Mesa core. This
| document lays out what core Mesa supports and
| not necessarily that any of the drivers are
| implementing the said support at this time.
| Granted, with Mesa not really being very
| performance-efficient at this time or capable
| of running most games, a majority of users
| will be waiting for the OpenGL 3.x state
| tracker for Gallium3D.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
