NVIDIA GameWorks OpenGL Graphics and Compute Samples

Categories: Developers |

Jul 18, 2014

The OpenGL Graphics and Compute Samples pack is a resource for cross-platform OpenGL 4 (GL4) and OpenGL ES 2 and 3 (ES2 and ES3) development, targeting Android, Windows, and Linux (x86/x64 and Linux for Tegra). The samples run on all four target platforms from a single source base. Advanced OpenGL features such as Tessellation Shaders, Geometry Shaders, Compute Shaders, Direct State Access, Texture Arrays and Instancing are all demonstrated. In addition, support for NVIDIA’s NSight Tegra Visual Studio plug-in means that developers can experiment with their effects on Windows OpenGL and immediately rebuild and retarget to run on Android Tegra systems, including Tegra K1.

KDE Plasma 5 desktop is fully OpenGL accelerated

Categories: Developers | Applications |

Jul 16, 2014

KDE proudly announces the immediate availability of Plasma 5.0, providing a visually updated core desktop experience that is easy to use and familiar to the user. Plasma 5.0 introduces a new major version of KDE’s workspace offering. The new Breeze artwork concept introduces cleaner visuals and improved readability. Central work-flows have been streamlined, while well-known overarching interaction patterns are left intact. Plasma 5.0 improves support for high-DPI displays and ships a converged shell, able to switch between user experiences for different target devices. Changes under the hood include the migration to a new, fully hardware-accelerated graphics stack centered around an OpenGL (ES) scenegraph. This allows offloading computationally expensive graphics rendering tasks onto the GPU which frees up resources on the system’s main processing unit, is faster and more power-efficient.

OGLplus 0.48.0 released

Categories: Developers |

Jul 14, 2014

OGLplus is a collection of open-source, cross-platform libraries which implement an object facade over the modern OpenGL, OpenAL and EGL C-language APIs. It automates resource and object management, error handling and makes the use of these libraries in C++ safer and more convenient.

CeedGL library encapsulates OpenGL objects into Objective-C objects

Categories: Developers |

Jul 11, 2014

CeedGL is a library that encapsulates OpenGL objects into Objective-C objects. It does not attempt to force a coding style or to define a specific scene graph, but instead aims at making it easier to work with OpenGL from Objective-C.

Khronos Group announces WebGL Widget Contest

Categories: General | Developers |

Jul 07, 2014

Help Khronos get a more interesting WebGL widget on Khronos.org and maybe even win a prize by entering the WebGL Widget Contest. We will choose the coolest widget that best shows off WebGL technology. Then we’ll post the winning entry on the Khronos website with a link back to the winner’s website, and the winner will receive a Mali-based device from ARM. The winner will be announced at our WebGL BOF at SIGGRAPH.

Anton’s OpenGL 4 Tutorials for Kindle

Categories: Developers |

Jul 07, 2014

Anton’s OpenGL 4 Tutorials is a practical guide to starting 3d programming with OpenGL 4. It will suit anyone learning 3d programming that needs a practical guide with some help for common problems. This book is a collection of worked-through examples of common real-time rendering techniques as used in video games or student projects. Along with some chapters and short articles for Tips and Tricks - not-so-obvious techniques that can add a lot of value to projects or make it easier to find problems.
