Khronos Group releases OpenVX 1.0 specification 
for Computer Vision Acceleration

Oct 20, 2014 | Categories: Developers | Comments

The Khronos Group announced the ratification and public release of the finalized OpenVX 1.0 specification, an open, royalty-free standard for cross platform acceleration of computer vision applications. OpenVX enables performance and power-optimized computer vision processing, especially important in embedded and real-time uses cases such as face, body and gesture tracking, smart video surveillance, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), object and scene reconstruction, augmented reality, visual inspection, robotics and more. In addition to the OpenVX specification, Khronos has developed a full set of conformance tests and an Adopters Program, that enables implementers to test their implementations and use the OpenVX trademark if conformant. Khronos plans to ship an open source, fully-conformant CPU-based implementation of OpenVX 1.0 before the end of 2014.

GLUS - Modern OpenGL, OpenGL ES & OpenVG Utilities now part of the OpenGL SDK

Oct 15, 2014 | Categories: Developers | Comments

OpenGL.Core - New open source .NET binding project on GitHub

Oct 02, 2014 | Categories: Developers | Comments

OpenGL.Core is a core profile only .NET binding, no extensions and no fancy and overloaded framework, just plain core profile OpenGL. The binding is strongly typed, functions are overloaded for different input data types and plattform pointer sizes, and uses separate enums for different functions (e.g. all internal pixel formats are encapsulated in one enum ‘glInternalFormat’). The binding is ready for OpenGL 4.5. The project welcomes all users and contributors.

OpenCSG 1.4.0 with fixes for large CSG expressions

Sep 16, 2014 | Categories: Developers | Comments

OpenCSG is an library for doing image-space rendering of shapes made up by constructive solid geometry (CSG), using and integrating with OpenGL. The new release 1.4.0 contains bug fixes for rendering CSG expressions made up from more than 255 primitives. OpenCSG implements a couple of different algorithms for rendering CSG, and all of them now work correctly for geometry that exceeds this number of primitives.

OGLplus 0.51.0 released

Aug 28, 2014 | Categories: Developers | Comments

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.

Delphi / Pascal OpenGL header translation now supports OpenGL 4.5

Aug 27, 2014 | Categories: Developers | Comments

The Delphi/Pascal OpenGL header translation of the Delphi OpenGL Community has been updated to the latest 4.5 release of OpenGL.
