One of the new standards being brewed by The Khronos Group is an OpenGL Transmission Format, glTF.

Work on the new OpenGL Transmission Format was mentioned in the EETimes. The report should be accurate given that it comes from the Khronos President, Neil Trevett. Additionally, I found out about this report as it came along this morning from the official news feed.

The report stated, "The Khronos Group expects to announce later this year an Open GL transmission format (glTF) that could act like the .mp3 or .jpg of graphic animations. The binary format aims to be neutral to any runtime environment and support at least 10:1 compression techniques already in the lab, said Neil Trevett, president of Khronos."

More details when they become available. There's nothing new to report on Vulkan right now but all bets are on for an August release of the specification.
