OpenGL 3.0 a solid first step to streamlining

Aug 14, 2008

The register has a good followup to the ‘firestorm’ centered around the recent release of OpenGL 3.0. In an interview with Neil Trevett, president of the Khronos Group which heads up OpenGL, shows great promise within a short time period. Trevett personally hopes OpenGL 3.1 can be delivered in six months’ time, as opposed to the two years it took to craft 3.0. In OpenGL 3.0 we have introduced a deprecation mechanism for the first time in OpenGL’s 16-year history. The deprecation mechanism will let OpenGL planners flag up features that’ll be removed from the next version of the 2D and 3D graphics rendering and visualization spec.
