    Default Intel Merges ETC2 Texture Compression In Mesa

    Phoronix: Intel Merges ETC2 Texture Compression In Mesa

    ETC2, the new royalty-free texture compression method that's required by OpenGL ES 3.0, now has support within mainline Mesa. However, for now this ETC2 support is limited to the Intel DRI driver...

    Why only OGL ES?

    I thought that you add texture format support for all OGL's. And just plug different APIs (which should be trivial). "Desktop" OGL have bigger requirements for texture support ?

    Desktop OpenGL only has ETC2 texture support added in version 4.3.
    They have a long way to go before reaching OpenGL 4.3.
    So it's more practical to focus on OpenGL ES 3.0 as a target first.

    Yeah, I couldn't find a standalone extension that would add just ETC2 to "normal" GL. The official one is the ES3 compatibility one which needs many other things too.
