    He probably means theres a common standard shader input we can all target.

    I think they will look into using the Vulcan SPIR-V as an opportunity to standardize the shader pipeline, allowing them to reuse the same code as Vulkan. Someone will probably look into implementing OpenGL on top of Vulcan, and that may have some benefits, keeping everyone working on the same stack. But we don't know yet how any of that will pan out.
    What do you mean by "standardizing the shader pipeline"?

    It is quite likely to happen like that. First, there hasn't been any news of a newer version of OpenGL coming soon, all the focus has been on Vulkan and reducing complexity. So, they will have time to work on optimizations versus feature parity. It should be noted that they are probably trying to optimize as they can, but it isn't their highest priority.

    With the focus off of featuritus, open source OpenGL has a chance to shine.

    Thanks all Mesa3D/driver hackers for hard work. Everytime I try to understand and grasp work and knowledge required, I am bit taken back. Big thanks (and I start to think I will donate some money to Mesa this year).

    Phoronix: The OpenGL ES 3.1 Foundation Is Being Laid In Mesa

    Intel developers in particular have been trying to wrap-up OpenGL ES 3.1 support within Mesa. That work is getting closer to finally being realized...
