    Re: OpenGL 3 Updates

    Is there some sort of 'beta' testing going on with NDAs in place? Are we going to get a suprise release imminently?

    BTW (this being as good a place as any) what will the minimum hardware requirements be for GL3? Geforce FX/6000/7000/8000?

    DX9 class hardware is the lower limit, I think GFFX just about makes it in, ATI 9500 should be good as well.

    And if they are NDA beta testing then this is the worse public relations stunt ever pulled; fine don't give out details but a wall of silent tends to make people jump ship.

    If the silence is due to a non disclosure agreement, I'd have to say I don't find non disclosure very agreeable at all.

    But it doesn't mean you have to vanish into thin air, hm?

    But would an NDA prevent one from saying "Yes, we are still actively working on {stuff} and yes there is an NDA." I put {stuff} in there in case it may no longer be called "OpenGL3.0", for example.

    Even a simple statement like that would alleviate some of the tension on this forum.

    Depends on the NDA. But it is not uncommon that a NDA is part of the NDA itself. In such cases you are not allowed to tell someone that there is an NDA.

    If they would tell you something, the infos would have been already leaking into this thread, I think (or hope)...

    Re: OpenGL 3 Updates

    Thank you Roderic. It is not much information, but as stated a hundred times before, every piece of info is better than none at all. Maybe you could get a job from the ARB as PR-manager... ;-)

    My problem is, that switching to DX9 is not a step forwards and DX10 isn't possible, since i don't even use Vista myself. That really only leaves OpenGL 3 for me. All my renderer-development is stalled for nearly a year now, i'm pretty pissed.
