Khronos Releases EGL 1.5 Specification

The Khronos Group today announced the ratification and release of the EGL 1.5 specification. EGL is an open, royalty-free standard that defines a portable interface to underlying operating system and display platforms to handle graphics context management, surface and buffer binding, and rendering synchronization. EGL also provides interop capability to enable efficient transfer of data and events between Khronos APIs. The new EGL 1.5 specification incorporates functionality for enhanced rendering flexibility and security, improved interop between OpenGL or OpenGL ES and OpenCL for mixed compute and rendering acceleration, and standardized support for multiple common operating systems including Android and 64-bit platforms.

Khronos Releases WebCL 1.0 Specification

The Khronos Group today announced the ratification and public release of the WebCL 1.0 specification. Developed in close cooperation with the Web community, WebCL extends the capabilities of HTML5 browsers by enabling developers to offload computationally intensive processing to available computational resources such as multicore CPUs and GPUs. WebCL defines JavaScript bindings to OpenCL APIs that enable Web applications to compile OpenCL C kernels and manage their parallel execution. Like WebGL, WebCL is expected to enable a rich ecosystem of JavaScript middleware that provides access to accelerated functionality to a wide diversity of Web developers. Please join us March 20th for our WebCL DevU at GDC. Read More
