    Re: OpenGL 3 Updates

    That is a very nice offer, but i doubt it could be written in an easy plug-and-play style, so i would need to do it myself, anyway. But if you like writing a tutorial, go ahead, there are certainly...

    Is there already some expected release date for 3.1 ? In what time-frame might we expect it? You mention very often, that there is supposed to be a steady time-frame for each release from now on, but...

    What i totally don't get is this:

    OpenGL "3.0" makes the whole spec A LOT more complicated, because it adds lots of things to the core, which need to interact with the legacy stuff.

    If that was the only fast path in OpenGL at the time, then that alone was reason enough to abandon it. Even D3D 3.0 allowed you a per-vertex color."
