The OpenGL ES working group is pleased to announce the release of the OpenGL ES 1.1 Full Specification

The OpenGL ES working group is pleased to announce the release of the OpenGL ES 1.1 Full Specification. Previously, OpenGL ES 1.1 was defined by a "difference specification", which was an annotated list of differences between it and desktop OpenGL 1.5. To understand the API, programmers new to OpenGL had to read the 300+ page OpenGL 1.5 specification, cross-referencing against the difference specification to see which features were supported. The new document is entirely self-contained, so no cross-referencing is required. And, as it is only about half as long as the desktop specification, it is much easier for OpenGL beginners to read. The API itself is of course unchanged, and the working group will continue to maintain and publish the older difference specification for those who prefer it. Both versions of the specification are available at the Khronos OpenGL ES specification download page
