ConceivablyTech posted a good review of the WebGL 1.0 Spec release news and followed it up with their own speculation on WebCL. "Enabled in a browser, WebCL could open an entirely new world for cloud applications at much higher performance levels. Khronos mentioned image and video processing as well as advanced physics for web games that could come alive through WebCL."
Khronos has announced a quick reference card for WebGL 1.0 release spec. This adds to the collection of Reference Cards already available for other Khronos APIs: OpenGL, OpenCL, OpenVG, OpenMAX, OpenSL ES, COLLADA and OpenWF
The Khronos™ Group today announced that it is making the COLLADA™ 1.4 Conformance Test Suite available free of charge to all developers. COLLADA is an open, XML-based industry standard that enables assets to be freely interchanged between 3D authoring applications which can then be mixed and matched in powerful combinations. The COLLADA test suite is a comprehensive set of over 500 detailed tests and a scripted framework that rigorously exercises applications that import and export COLLADA assets to ensure that they can reliably participate in a COLLADA-based toolchain.

Please visit Khronos at booth #1444 at the Game Developer Conference (GDC), March 2-4, 2011 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco to learn more about COLLADA. Khronos is also running a series of developer university sessions on Thursday, March 3rd, in Room 301 in the South Hall:
Opera just announced that its latest Opera 11 beta has WebGL support for Windows. Currently only Windows is support, but a promise of WebGL on Opera for other platforms has been made. As well, Opera claims they are working on WebGL for Windows using DirectX. This should be interesting, as WebGL is built on top of OpenGL. Opera 11 for Windows is available for download today.
