          is time to start discussing the deprecation of opengl ( in addition to open cl which khronos had already been planning ) then . How are translation layers from this apis to vulkan going ?

              May I ask for a source for the claim that OpenCL is going to be deprecated?

                I assume that this is one of the most astonishing news of this year about the good process of evolution on graphical linux environment.

                    Yes.. YES! All hail vulkan!

                    Even if it needs two code paths, it's supported by all hardware vendors, whereas EGLStream is almost only NVidia AFAIK.
