OpenCL Course Creation Collaboration: Call for Proposals

OpenCL is an industry standard programming model available on a wide range of platforms from multiple vendors. It is an established technology that has been in use commercially for several years. It is not used in the academic community, however, anywhere near as much as it could be. To help correct this shortcoming, the creators of OpenCL (the Khronos Open Standards group) is launching a program to fund a number of course development projects. We do not anticipate that the level of funding associated with this program will cover the full cost of course development. Rather, our funds will augment OpenCL courseware projects in place or in the planning stages. If this type of course development sounds interesting to you, read the entire call for proposals.

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. Read More
