In the current proposal stereo can’t be toggled on and off after context creation, but monoscopic contexts like the browser page compositor only display the left buffer. So the application can simply elect not to render to the right buffer at times when only one buffer is being displayed.

How does an application electc not to render to the right buffer?

Florian, by rendering multiple views into one framebuffer, do you mean more than 2 views?

I mean into a framebuffer object with an attached texture.

Typically in rendering you'd render a few things into ordinary framebuffers (such as shadow maps, GPGPU stuff, whatever), and some of the renders (such as stereo views) might be rendered to a framebuffer object to facilitate postprocessing of various kinds.

How do you select if a framebuffer is stereo or mono?
