OpenGL ES 1.2 and 2.0 are available for public review

The OpenGL ES development team is accepting applications from qualified developers who wish to preview the upcoming OpenGL ES 1.2 and the OpenGL ES 2.0 Draft Specification. Khronos has adopted a
dual-track roadmap
for OpenGL ES as new-generation programmable graphics engines are being prepared to ship into embedded devices from games consoles to cell-phones. OpenGL ES 1.X specifications will continue to be evolved to support enable new generations of fixed function 3D accelerators while OpenGL ES 2.0 is the first embedded 3D API with full shading language programmability through the OpenGL ES Shading Language - a close derivative of the desktop OpenGL Shading Language. OpenGL ES 2.X specifications will be developed over time to expose the capabilities of evolving programmable hardware.
