STANDARDS --
The well known Linux/open-source focused consulting firm Igalia has joined The Khronos Group as a contributing member.

Given how long Igalia has been involved in the Linux graphics stack development, particularly working on contract for the Intel Mesa driver with features like geometry shaders, FP64 for Haswell, and other features (see our many news articles with Igalia), it's actually a bit surprising they hadn't joined Khronos up until now.

The Khronos Group announced today on Khronos.org, "Igalia S.L. has joined as a Contributor Member. Igalia is a Free Software consultancy with headquarters in Spain and developers all around the world. They are passionate about their work, active in their communities, eager to learn and happy to contribute their knowledge. In short, they are inspired to make the world a better place through Free Software, and driven by the knowledge that they can."

Igalia joins the likes of fellow consulting firm Collabora along with companies like Red Hat, Canonical, and dozens of other firms as being members of The Khronos Group for spearheading industry standards like Vulkan, OpenGL, OpenCL, EGL, SPIR-V and much more.
