Khronos Places OpenGL and OpenGL ES Conformance Tests into Open Source

The Khronos Group today announced that it has placed conformance tests for the OpenGL and OpenGL ES open standard APIs for 3D graphics into open source. Khronos has created a new GitHub source repository that will hold test sources for OpenGL and OpenGL ES as well the test suite for Vulkan that was open sourced when Vulkan launched. The unified repository will encourage streamlined and accelerated development of tests for Khronos 3D APIs. The Khronos 3D API test sources are made available under the Apache 2.0 license at the repository available here.
