A while ago the dmSDK source was removed from SGI's open source projects site. Is work being done converting it to a ML Digital Media I/O API implementation? An OpenML sample implementation with a liberal license similar to SGI's OpenGL sample implementation would be nice.
IMHO OpenML would be great for Linux and other free *NIX operating systems, but if the waiting is too long (as e.g. with Motif, which still isn't really free, though lesstif is) it may not find general acceptance.
So, will there be a OpenML sample implementation? and if so, when can it be expected?
Also when will a revision of the specification with support for buffers that are not in main memory be out?
