- Nokia has updated its WebCL extension to support Firefox 14. If you install this, you can try out my CLKernels site, which makes it possible to configure and execute OpenCL applications in a browser. It still needs work, but I should have everything fixed in about a week.
- The Khronos Group has released new specs for OpenGL 4.3 and OpenGL ES 3.0. OpenGL 4.3 now features compute shaders, which can perform general-purpose processing like volume and physics computation. Yes, it looks like these shaders make OpenGL-OpenCL interoperability unnecessary.
- The COLLADA graphics format has become an ISO standard. Specifically, COLLADA is now ISO/PAS 17506:2012, which deals with industrial automation systems and integration.
- I have Van Morrison's Moondance inexplicably stuck in my head. I hope it never gets out.
