    Default OpenGL 3.0, GLSL 1.30 Released

    Phoronix: OpenGL 3.0, GLSL 1.30 Released

    From SIGGRAPH 2008, one of the premiere computers graphics conferences, the Khronos Group has announced the release of the OpenGL 3.0 API specification and the GLSL 1.30 shading language specification. This is the first major update to this cross-platform 3D programming API since the OpenGL 2.1 release two years ago. In this article we have a bit of information on these OpenGL and GLSL updates and when we can expect to see the Linux graphics scene moving to this new standard.

    afaik comes ogl3 with gallium3d. in other words: it doesn't make sense to put lot of effort into the "old" driver model.

    The word "finally" comes to mind.

    how long until it supports my DX10 hardware, and will that be before i have purchased DX11 hardware?
    i posit this question pessimistically, due the growing irrelevance of OpenGL to me as i see it.

    but i do hope.....................

    people are always disappointed. If the new release would have broken all the apis for the sake of 'clean up' a lot more people would be disappointed.

    Whatever you do, you will always see some whining. Just look at this forum and the whining bridgeman& co have to endure (and endure they do, with humour)

    Agree. But then again, the "clean up" was expected.
