Khronos Group Releases OpenGL ES 2.0 Conformance Test

May 12th, 2008 The Khronos Group is pleased to announce the release of the OpenGL(R) ES 2.0 Conformance Tests.  The Conformance Tests exercise and verify both the OpenGL ES 2.0 API and its companion shader programming language, GLSL ES 1.0. Only implementations that pass the Conformance Tests and are reviewed via the Khronos Conformance Process are entitled to call themselves “OpenGL ES 2.0” and use the OpenGL ES 2.0 trademark and logo. Khronos Adopters who have entered the OpenGL ES 2.0 conformance program can now download the Conformance Tests and make conformance submissions.  Information about the Khronos Conformance Testing and Adopters Program of OpenGL ES 2.0 is available here.

“The availability of a conformance program is a significant milestone for any open standard and Khronos expects that the launch of the Conformance Tests for OpenGL ES 2.0 will encourage and enable multiple implementations of this industry-leading 3D API,” said Neil Trevett, president of the Khronos Group. OpenGL is a registered trademark and the OpenGL ES logo is a trademark of Silicon Graphics Inc. used by permission by Khronos.
