Are you tired of OpenGL loaders like GLEW that have huge headers with hundreds of extensions you never use? Plagued by “unresolved externals” and other errors when using OpenGL loading libraries? The OpenGL Loader Generator is a tool that generates a header and source file that you include directly in your project. It gives you the extensions you ask for, without a gigantic 600KB header cluttered with stuff you’ll never use. You just include the files directly in your project, just like regular header and source files. No libraries to build or link to.

The purpose of thise example collection is to provide short and self contained code that showcases OpenGL api functionality/features. The examples have no dependencies on any custom framework or basecode except for “canonical” libraries such as glfw, gl3w and glm. All the examples are written against core profiles of version OpenGL version 3.3 or higher.

The libgls library allows stereoscopic rendering with OpenGL, without requiring hardware support for quad-buffered stereo. Many display modes are supported, from anaglyph glasses to various types of 3D TVs and stereoscopic displays. Advanced features include support for crosstalk reduction. Libgls is available under the MIT/X11 license.

Version 4.1 of the open-source, cross-platform volume visualization tool Voreen is now available for download. This version adds processors performing volume rendering with global illumination, includes pre-integrated transfer-functions and improves multimodal slice rendering. ATI/AMD compatibility with OpenCL has also been improved. Robustness and speed of the DICOM reader has been increased, camera handling for transformed datasets has been fixed and mutual information co-registration using ITK has been extended.

The Linux OpenGL stack along with the upstream OpenGL specification has been evolving at a fast pace in recent years. There was recently some discussion within the Khronos camp for updating the guide for how to implement OpenGL support on Linux and it’s been decided it will be talked about next week at XDC2012. To get the ball rolling for planning out a new Linux OpenGL ABI, NVIDIA has published a proposal.

Equalizer is the standard framework to create and deploy parallel, scalable OpenGL 3D applications. Equalizer 1.4 is a feature release extending the 1.0 API, introducing major new features, most notably asynchronous readbacks, region of interest and thread affinity for increased performance during scalable rendering. It culminates over seven years of development and decades of experience into a feature-rich, high-performance and mature parallel rendering framework and related high-performance C++ libraries.
