OpenGL 3.3 Support Lands In Mesa! Possible Mesa 11.0
I don't see OpenGL 2.x listed. I don't see OpenGL 1.x listed.
Now 3.x is done. Time to move on. Time to move up.
Sorry, you're right on the first two points. OpenGL 1 and 2 aren't listed because when the document was created all of the major drivers had 2.1 compliance and they made a list of what was needed for 3.x . In the same list they also made a listing of everything that was needed for 4.x, they just kept the name the same. Just scroll down in the document, 4.X is listed
Kudos to the intel and mesa teams. My i7 laptop, my primary computer, has in the last year undergone an incrdible transformation in capability. While I won't pick intel for a steambox, for many users who need a laptop for work but like to play games in thier downtime, this is a welcome change. The HD4000+ is not a bad thing, but it falls just shy of what I want and in a loptop usually means really high temperatures when you push it to decent levels. If it keeps going this way, in a few in a few tick/tock cycles intel without dedicated GPU may become a viable option for low/mid range gaming computers. Realy all they need to do is 1080p at 30-60fps without overheating in a laptop. Right now the i7-HD4000 in a system 76 laptop will get to over 80C at 720p on most games (but have playable frame rates).
This is great news for Intel users. Does anyone know how long will we have to wait until AMD reaches the same level of support? Thank you.
This, Also when will OpenCL 1.0 hit? We have UVD, it wont be long before OpenGL3.3 are working, it would be really nice to see the full feature set of the HD2000-HD4000 series be completely covered in the spring round of distro releases.
I thought the Wikipedia article and FAQ entries would have given it
away, but...this was not actually a serious patch. I'm surprised how
few people got it, but at least four of us thought it was hilarious.
It's not every day you get such a perfect opportunity for the classic
"this one goes to 11" joke. (If you don't know the reference, feel
free to look it up on youtube.)
At any rate, Mesa 10.0 is looking to be an awesome release. Great work,
