Aside from game developers that are members of The Khronos Group dabbling internally with game engine support for the Vulkan graphics API, a drawing program now also appears to be powered by this next-gen graphics API.
Experienced OpenGL/WebGL developer Sascha Willems has shared his views on the next-generation, low-level Vulkan graphics API from the perspective of a hobbyist developer.
The Khronos Group's BoF at SIGGRAPH 2015 is now over with no major surprises.
During today's Khronos SIGGRAPH 2015 BoFs it was asked when WebGL 2 is expected to officially ship.
The Vulkan / SPIR-V / OpenGL talks during the live-streamed Khronos SIGGRAPH '15 BoFs just started.
For those not doing so right now, there's a live-stream of the Khronos birds of a feather sessions happening this afternoon from SIGGRAPH 2015 in Los Angeles.
Tomorrow during the Khronos Vulkan BoF at SIGGRAPH, LunarG will be publicly announcing LunarXchange, a support portal for getting started in Vulkan development that was made possible by Valve's sponsorship of this Linux-focused graphics consulting firm.
In continuation of this morning's article about the Khronos announcements, Khronos Debuts OpenGL ES 3.2 and New GL Extensions, But No Vulkan This Week, Imagination Tech is talking about their new Vulkan on Android demo.
While waiting for the Vulkan specification and implementations to be formally unveiled later in the year, there's the next best thing.
Next week is the annual SIGGRAPH event happening in Los Angeles.
The Khronos Group, the organization behind OpenGL, OpenCL, Vulkan, and others, today announced a standard data format specification that's aptly called the "Khronos Data Format Specification 1.0."
The first beta of the upcoming PHP 7 was released a few days ago. PHP 7.0 Beta 1 marks the point that this major update to PHP is feature-complete.
Neil Trevett, the President of the Khronos Group, did an interview recently about the Vulkan API as the future of graphics programming.
This week marked five years since the release of OpenCL 1.1. While much time has passed, the open-source OpenCL drivers and free software adoption of the Open Computing Language remains arguably poor.
One of the new standards being brewed by The Khronos Group is an OpenGL Transmission Format, glTF.
Version 3.0 of the Open Computer Vision library is now available. The release announcement reads, "With a great pleasure and great relief OpenCV team finally announces OpenCV 3.0 gold release, the most functional and the fastest OpenCV ever. And yet it’s very stable too – all the thousands of tests that we created during the project + many new tests pass successfully on Windows, Linux and Mac, x64 and ARM."
The Khronos Group today announced the official release of the SYCL 1.2 specification. SYCL is the Khronos Group's single-source heterogeneous programming language that serves as an abstraction layer for utilizing OpenCL while writing standard C++ code.
While OpenGL 4.0+ support continues to be tackled for Mesa, finishing up OpenGL ES 3.1 support within Mesa seems to be a pressing priority for Intel.
The Khronos Group has published the 30th revision of SPIR-V, the intermediate representation at the heart of the new Vulkan graphics API and OpenCL 2.1 compute API.
There's hope that next week we might learn some new details about SPIR-V and Vulkan than what already has been made public over the past month.
The Vulkan, SPIR-V, and OpenCL 2.1 slides from last week's GPU Tech Conference are now online.
Version 0.11 of POCL -- originally known as Portable OpenCL and since renamed to the Portable Computing Language -- is now available for running OpenCL on the CPU in an open-source environment.
Given this week's release of HHVM 3.6 I decided to run some new performance comparison tests of PHP vs. HHVM.
Beyond posting their OpenCL 2.1 technical overview session to YouTube, the Khronos Group has now uploaded their Vulkan and SPIR-V question and answer session too for those wishing to learn more about this new graphics API and graphics/compute intermediate representation.
For those wishing to learn more about the OpenCL 2.1 specification unveiled last week by The Khronos Group at GDC15 alongside Vulkan and SPIR-V, their presentation is now public.
Time sure seems to fly by: OpenGL 4.0 turned five years old today. The sad part is that Mesa still doesn't fully implement the GL 4.0 specification.
For those wishing to learn more about The Khronos Group's work on Vulkan, SPIR-V, and OpenCL 2.1, their presentations and videos are now available.
GLAVE is a debug tool that LunarG has been working on to help in debugging the new Vulkan API.
In continuation to the article this morning on Khronos announcing OpenCL 2.1, the Vulkan graphics API, and SPIR-V, a provisional specification on SPIR-V is now available for interested developers.
