The complete OpenGL BOF video set is now online. Watch Barthold Lichtenbelt from NVIDIA discuss what is new with OpenGL 4, Jon Leech ARB Ecosystem TSG Chair deliver an ecosystem update, Bill Licea-Kane from AMD talk about GLSL tips and tricks and Ian Williams also from NVIDIA discuss Viewperf 12. Slides to go along with the videos are available online.

libCL is an open-source parallel algorithm library written in C++ and OpenCL, released under the Apache 2.0 license. Based on a thin layer of wrapper classes for OpenCL and OpenGL are implementations of parallel algorithms ranging from simple primitives such as sorting, searching and algebra to complex systems of algorithms for computational research and visualization. libCL emerged out of OpenCL Studio, and as such integrates well with the development environment and its rich prototyping and visualization capabilities.

AMD announced that the latest FirePro professional graphics cards have been certifed for the OpenCL enabled Abaqus 6.11 finite element analysis (FEA) software. Abaqus, which takes advantage of the OpenCL™ industry standard, is a leading structural and multiphysics analysis solution which is used by a wide range of industries for simulating the lifelike performance of products throughout the design and manufacturing process.

Bryan Catanzaro, NVIDIA Research talks discuss the CUDA and OpenCL programming models, GPU architecture, and how to write high performance code on GPUs, illustrating with case studies from application domains such as image and video processing.

The SuperShaper is a small free tool that let's you explore the Super Formula in real-time. It uses OpenCL1.0 to evaluate the formula and OpenGL3.2 for rendering. For maximum performance OpenCL and OpenGL share buffers if possible. The latest version supports any OpenCL capable device in the system (CPU or GPU).
