NVIDIA Puts Out Its OpenGL 4.0 Linux Driver

,----[ Quote ]
| The OpenGL 4.0 specification was released 
| towards the middle of March alongside an 
| OpenGL 3.3 update, which NVIDIA was quick to 
| capitalize upon the 3.x update just days 
| later with new drivers for supported 
| operating systems. NVIDIA wasn't immediate in 
| delivering OpenGL 4.0 support, since they 
| didn't have any hardware at the time capable 
| of supporting this newest specification. Now 
| that the GeForce GTX 470/480 GPUs are out 
| there and other new DirectX 11.0 / OpenGL 4.0 
| capable hardware is on the way, NVIDIA has 
| put out its OpenGL 4.0 driver update for 
| Linux and Windows.


Reworking OpenGL ES In Mesa, Gallium3D

,----[ Quote ]
| In May of last year there were Gallium3D 
| state trackers published for OpenGL ES 1.1 
| and OpenGL ES 2.0. These were among the first 
| major working state trackers for this new 
| graphics architecture, but in the months 
| since they have continued to receive much 
| affection from a few developers and continue 
| to improve. The OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0 support 
| though may now be reworked by Kristian 
| HÃgsberg.



AMD announces OpenGL 4.0 and 3.3 support on Windows and Linux platforms


Chronos 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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
