The Khronos Group today announced the availability of the official conformance test suite for the OpenCL 2.0 specification, making it possible for implementers to certify that their implementations are officially conformant thorough the Khronos OpenCL Adopters Program. Khronos has also released a set of header files for OpenCL 2.0 and an updated specification with a number of clarifications and corrections to the specification first released in November 2013. The specification, header files and links to the Khronos Adopters site and feedback forums are available online.
drawElements is proud to announce the addition of ARM to their GPU analysis system drawElements Quality Program. ARM expands its quality assurance processes with the adoption of the OpenCL and OpenGL ES 3.0 test modules of the drawElements Quality Program – the dEQP. The dEQP provides ARM with tens of thousands of automated test cases as well as associated services from drawElements’ expert engineers.
drawElements announced that Vivante Corporation has subscribed to the drawElements Quality Program. The drawElements Quality Program focuses on quality assurance and consists of multiple API test modules that ensure robust OpenGL ES, EGL, and OpenCL vendor implementations.
The Khronos Group announces that the full COLLADA Test Suite is now ported to GitHub and is free to use to exhaustively test the quality of any COLLADA importer/exporter, with a full tutorial on how to use the test suite.
Imagination Technologies announces that it is among the first to submit PowerVR Series6 ‘Rogue’ drivers for OpenGL ES 3.0 conformance with Khronos. Designed for the latest APIs, including OpenGL ES 3.0, PowerVR Series6 is already shipping in end user product. Product is based on a published Khronos Specification, and is expected to pass the Khronos Conformance Testing Process. Current conformance status can be found online.
The OpenGL ES Working Group is pleased to announce the launch of the OpenGL ES 3.0 Adopter program. OpenGL ES implementers that join the program get access to the OpenGL ES 3.0 conformance test, and are able to submit their products for OpenGL ES 3.0 conformance certification. The OpenGL ES 3.0 conformance test is the result of the largest software development project Khronos has ever undertaken. It is a revised and expanded version of the OpenGL ES 2.0 conformance test, with hundreds of subtests directed at the new features of OpenGL ES 3.0. Conformance certification is the mark of a high-quality implementation, and offers a high level of application portability. More information about the OpenGL ES 3.0 Adopter program can be found in the Adopters’ Agreement and the Khronos Conformance Test Process document.
Fixstars Corporation announced the release of their OpenCL Programming Book which is available on Amazon Kindle, Apple iPad and Fixstars' website. More information on the OpenCL book is available on the Fixstars website.
Digital Media Professionals Inc. announced that they have licensed the SMAPH-F, the latest OpenVG1.1 compliant graphics IP core to Renesas Electronics Corporation, for use in its next-generation system-on-chip (SoC) for consumer applications. The full press release is available in English and Japanese.
The Khronos Group announced that the COLLADA™ 1.4 Adopters Package is complete and under final review prior to public release--anticipated for April, 2010. The Adopters Package contains both conformance testing software and documentation intended to drive rapid evaluation, deployment and acceptance of the COLLADA specification in 3D content creation, and asset management software. Three new levels of COLLADA compliance are offered in the Adopters Package, which is available to any interested company by executing the Khronos COLLADA 1.4 Adopters Agreement. You can learn more about COLLADA at the Game Developer Conference Friday, March 12 from1:30pm to 2:30pm. The official press release is available here, and an official feedback thread has been started on the COLLADA.org forums.
