    GLX_EXT_create_context_es2_profile is a standard extension (http://www.opengl.org/registry/specs...s2_profile.txt) and can't be changed by the X developers.

    Looking at the extensions.
    Noticed a problem, the GLX_EXT_create_context_es2_profile needs to allow for version and not just es2.
    Because they things need to be changed every time a new version comes out.
    (Considering OpenGL ES 3 will come out this summer, I'd say it's best if this is done good from the start.)

    Please add a way to specify a version and rename the extension to GLX_EXT_create_context_es_profile.

    I think it is a good thing these extensions are added sooner than later.
    Being able to set up a context is one of the first and a very important part in a program that uses OpenGL.

    Even if it means X.Org server gets released a bit later. It's better to have these last minute glx extensions.
    It's very important to have context creation as early as possible in place.

    A good job done!

    it's not the last minute - the release isn't until september, which it even says in the article. this is feature freeze, not release.

    No he doesn't because the blobs are just as good on linux. He wasn't talking about the blobs, he was talking about the OS.

    Windows support the latest OpenGL 4 graphics! Linux still sucks for open source OpenGL graphics API.
