Mesa's Venus VirtIO-GPU Vulkan Driver Adds Code To Handle ANGLE
While Mesa already has Zink as a means of OpenGL ES (and desktop OpenGL) atop Vulkan, Mesa's Venus driver for VirtIO-GPU Vulkan usage has landed the necessary requirements for supporting Google's ANGLE for OpenGL ES atop that driver. The Vulkan VK_EXT_image_robustness, VK_EXT_line_rasterization, and VK_EXT_provoking_vertex extensions were implemented for ANGLE while may also benefit other Vulkan software too running atop Venus.
The Venus protocol and Virgl renderer code has already in turn previously merged the necessary changes for handling this ANGLE support initiative. The Mesa changes to Venus for this ANGLE support can be found via this merge request that landed in Mesa 22.1 on Thursday.
Those curious about the latest state of ANGLE can see Google's ANGLE on GitHub.
