  • OpenGL 3.1 Core Support Lands In X.Org Server's GLAMOR

    A number of GLAMOR commits landed today within the X.Org Server Git repository.

    Most noticeable to the GLAMOR work that landed today is the OpenGL core profile support from the patches originally posted earlier this month and since revised. With the patches, there is core profile support with GLAMOR for EGL/ephyr/XWayland. There's also VBO support for GLAMOR X-Video vertex array objects usage, and more as part of this work.

  • RTG Announces Radeon Open Compute Platform

    Their latest post reads, "Today the Radeon Technology Group is releasing a preview version of the Radeon Open Compute Kernel driver (ROCK) and Radeon Open Compute runtime ROCR, allowing the exploration of what is possible with the open GPU computing foundation. The objective of this release is to start a dialog with the commercial and academic HPC communities that will shape the future direction of the Boltzmann Initiative, both for the coming year and beyond. We are excited to present to you our first public release of the Boltzmann driver and runtime with HCC and HIP."
