ARB_texture_filter_minmax
ARB_sample_locations
ARB_shader_viewport_layer_array
ARB_sparse_texture2
ARB_sparse_texture_clamp
ARB_gpu_shader_int64
ARB_shader_clock
ARB_shader_ballot
ARB_ES3_2_compatibility
ARB_parallel_shader_compile
ARB_shader_atomic_counter_ops


The extensions below are part of OpenGL ES 3.2 core specification now, but they can still be used in contexts below OpenGL ES 3.2 as extensions on supported hardware:


KHR_debug
KHR_texture_compression_astc_ldr
KHR_blend_equation_advanced
OES_sample_shading
OES_sample_variables
OES_shader_image_atomic
OES_shader_multisample_interpolation
OES_texture_stencil8
OES_texture_storage_multisample_2d_array
OES_copy_image
OES_draw_buffers_indexed
OES_geometry_shader
OES_gpu_shader5
OES_primitive_bounding_box
OES_shader_io_blocks
OES_tessellation_shader
OES_texture_border_clamp
OES_texture_buffer
OES_texture_cube_map_array
OES_draw_elements_base_vertex
KHR_robustness
EXT_color_buffer_float


This beta release is based on the published OpenGL 2015 ARB extension specifications and the OpenGL ES 3.2 specification, and are expected to pass the ARB extension conformance tests and OpenGL ES 3.2 conformance test when available. Current conformance status can be found at https://www.khronos.org/conformance.
