SIGGRAPH 2011 is taking place in Vancouver, and the Khronos Group has made two interesting announcements:
- OpenGL 4.2 has been released along with GLSL 4.20.6. The new standard supports atomic operations and read/write operations on textures. It looks like the difference in capability between OpenCL kernels and OpenGL shaders is narrowing.
- The Khronos Group is seeking corporate participation with regard to the WebCL and StreamInput standards. The more I read about StreamInput, the more interesting it seems. I'd love to sit in on the standard deliberation process, but I don't think I'd have anything productive to contribute.
