Shaderific is an educational app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch that makes it possible to write, compile and test OpenGL ES 2.0 shader programs directly on any iOS device. Version 2.4 adds a built-in reference for the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL) and context-sensitive help. The reference comprises a detailed description of all GLSL data types, qualifiers, variables, constants, statements and functions. Context-sensitive help can be invoked while editing code by pressing the tab button on the extended keyboard.
EETImes talks about Freescale’s i.MX6 Series of application processors which offer a scalable line of hardened processors targeting automotive instrument display systems. Each i.MX6 product is optimized around CPU, OpenCL / OpenGL / OpenVG graphics, and HD video processing for in-vehicle infotainment and instrument cluster systems. The technologies and tools provided by Freescale, Vivante and Rightware will help car manufacturers and the whole automotive ecosystem move up to a new level of performance and sophistication with next-generation human-machine interfaces using OpenCL / OpenGL ES, and OpenVG for automotive apps in instrument displays.

Japanese tech journalist Zenji Nishikawa recently posted an interview he had with Neil Trevett from SIGGRAPH 2012. The interview, in Japanese, covers the recent release of OpenGL ES 3.0 and OpenGL 4.3.
If you prefer to get your news through social media outlets, like Facebook and Twitter, the Khronos Group can be found there too! We've got our main Twitter account and Facebook page covering OpenCL, OpenGL, WebGL and COLLADA. We've got a good selection of videos from our various shows on YouTube as well.
Khronos member Hwanyong Lee will be speaking at Global 3D Tech Forum in Korea on October 11th. The 2nd Global 3D Technology Forum which is a big event of 3D Industry(including World 3D Expo, 3D Film Festival), will be held in KINTEX(Ilsan)
The Linux OpenGL stack along with the upstream OpenGL specification has been evolving at a fast pace in recent years. There was recently some discussion within the Khronos camp for updating the guide for how to implement OpenGL support on Linux and it's been decided it will be talked about next week at XDC2012. To get the ball rolling for planning out a new Linux OpenGL ABI, NVIDIA has published a proposal. Read the rest of this story on Phoronix.
NVIDIA announced today that its new Quadro K5000 GPU will be available on Apple Mac Pro. Based on Nvidia’s internal tests, the Kepler architecture enables the Quadro K5000 GPU for Mac to run key content-creation applications up to twice as fast at lower power than the Fermi-based Quadro 4000 for Mac, while the new chips also provide support for OpenGL and OpenCL.
If you are looking for training on one or more of the Khronos Group technologies, we've updated our training events schedule.
If you were unable to make it to the 2012 SIGGRAPH LA, and you really wanted to see the Khronos Groups Birds of a Feather sessions (BOFs), now you can. Presentation slides, videos, photos and more, are now online. A special thank you goes out to the Gold and Silver sponsors of the OpenGL 20th anniversary party: AMD, Google, NVIDIA, DMP, Imagination, Intel, Lucasfilm and R3
Version 1.0.0 of the free open-source, cross-platform 3D application framework PixelLight has been released. We're using OpenGL as well as GLSL within our main-renderer and OpenGL ES 2.0 for Android. The primary focus of this release was on quality assurance. On the graphics side, tesselation as well as instancing support was added to the rendering system. Further we added the capability of rendering volume data.
