Mesa Scratches Another GLES 3.2 Extension Off Its TODO List

As of late there's been an increasing effort to get OpenGL ES 3.2 working for Mesa. Overnight, another OpenGL ES 3.2 extension was put in place.

Ilia Mirkin added GL_OES_gpu_shader5 and GPU_EXT_shader5 support to core Mesa yesterday, which largely come down to the same extension. The GL_OES_gpu_shader5 extension is mandated by OpenGL ES 3.2 and now with Mesa Git is supported by all of the Mesa drivers supporting GL_ARB_gpu_shader5. GL_ARB_gpu_shader5 on the desktop side is supported by OpenGL 4.0+ drivers.
