AMD announced an updated SDK (software development kit) allowing programmers to tap into the GPUs (graphics processing units) of its A-Series (& Llano& ) processors. Meanwhile, the Khronos Group released version 4.2 of its OpenGL specification, and AMD and Nvidia have both pledged support for it....
With Mesa 10.0 that will be released in a few weeks time there is finally OpenGL 3.2 and 3.3 support. But with Mesa still being several years and revisions behind the latest Khronos Group specification, it's still a matter of implementing a lot of new GL4 functionality.
Mesa, an open source implementation of the OpenGL specification and a system for rendering interactive 3D graphics, is now at version 9.2.4.Mesa 9.2.4 is the next iteration in the series and it implements the OpenGL 3.1 API. This means that some drivers might not support the specification for the latest Mesa.“There are more changes in this release than typical for a stable releases of Mesa.
