Re: [Public WebGL] WebGL Next WG created

"WebGL Next" is Khronos' forum for designing a next-generation graphics and compute API for the web.

The W3C community group, and this forum, do have a great deal of overlap in their charters. It's likely that one or the other will end up being where this API is standardized.

NXT is Google's contribution in this area, and it'll soon be made to Khronos' forum. Please sign up to public_webgl_next for future announcements.

I'm a little confused now, what is the relationship between this group, and the w3c community group, WebNXT and WebGPU?

WebGL community,

Khronos has created a WebGL Next working group -- separate from the current WebGL working group -- to take the next evolutionary step in the API: toward the low-level, explicit graphics APIs like Direct3D 12, Metal, and Vulkan. The "next" WebGL will break compatibility with current WebGL in order to deliver the dramatic performance improvements afforded by these lower-level APIs.

If you are interested in participating in these discussions, please join the public_webgl_next mailing list:

The creation of Github repositories, and further announcements, will be posted to that mailing list.

Looking forward to working with you all to design this new API!
