OpenGL ES Development for Android

Intel has posted an in-depth article on how to get started with OpenGL ES development for the Android platform. The article details how to work around many of the special challenges of using OpenGL ES on Android not covered in existing literature, including the lack of support for compressed and alpha textures and the trade-offs associated with using OpenGL ES with the Android SDK verses the NDK. It also covers which are the best sample apps to use for new development and how to optimize the Android tools for OpenGL ES development and maximum emulation performance. This is a great place to start regardless of what processor or GPU you are using.

Intel releases conformant OpenCL 1.2 driver and Developer Kit 2013

The new Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications 2013 extends Intel’s OpenCL support to include a certified OpenCL* 1.2 driver for 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors with Intel® HD Graphics running Microsoft Windows 7* and 8* operating systems. It also provides developers with the ability to simultaneously utilize the compute resources of both the Intel® CPU and Intel HD Graphics. The new driver and the supporting developer kit promise better performance and improved battery life from the combination of OpenCL general purpose programing coupled with the hardware acceleration capability of Intel HD Graphics on low-power Intel Core platforms.

KTX library version 2.0 has been released along with new version of toktx

Version 2 adds support for ETC2 and EAC textures and conversion of legacy LUMINANCE* and INTENSITY* formats when loading in an OpenGL core context. It includes KTX loader tests for OpenGL ES 3.0 and OpenGL 3.3. In addition a couple of nasty bugs have been fixed including one in the KTX writer where image rows were not padded to 4 bytes as required by the spec. Complete details of the changes are located in the OpenGL ES SDK. A new version of toktx has also been released. New features are ability to create KTX files with textures in sized internal formats and defaulting to RED and RG formats for 1 and 2 channel textures. Naturally it incorporates the bug-fixed writer from libktx. Visit the KTX home page to download these tools.
