SIGGRAPH OpenGL presentation downloads

The OpenGL hompage reports that the OpenGL BOF (Birds of a Feather) presentations from this year’s SIGGRAPH are available for download (as Powerpoint slideshows).

Highlights include:

  • OpenGL 3 directions (Much leaner with a compatibility layer)
  • OpenGL New object model (Consistency… finally!)
  • OpenGL Upcoming features (Geometry shader, texture as table, conditional rendering)
  • OpenGL on Vista (After much fear and debate, I guess this is happening)

These presentations include information that people have been holding out for (the ARB have been very quiet for the last couple of years). However, due to the nature of the presentations, they are still fairly limited on details.
