  • A Message From the ARB Secretary
  • A Welcome Message from the Ecosystem Working Group
  • Free OpenGL Debug Tools for Academic Users
  • Superbuffers Working Group Update
  • New Texture Functions with Awkward Names to Avoid Ugly Artifacts
  • Improved synchronization across GPUs and CPUs - No more glFinish!
