SIGGRAPH LA 2012 is this week and expected this morning marked the release of OpenGL 4.3 and OpenGL ES 3.0, as talked about on Phoronix previously plus their details and new features will be mentioned in posts on Phoronix in the next few minutes. There's also one pleasant and very welcome surprise from the Khronos Group this morning: ASTC. ASTC is a royalty-free next-generation texture compression specification. With a bit of luck, hopefully ASTC will finally kick the patent-laden S3TC out the door.
