Software News   Software News : New OpenGL lib available on OS4Depot
   posted by Jorge on 14-Nov-2006 13:41:24 (3416 reads)
Mainly of interesst for developers, I have uploaded a new version of the ablit library to OS4Depot which contains a full OpenGL1.3 implementation now.

The current version is a full functional preview release which includes a software renderer only.


Also updated on OS4Depot is a new version of libSPS, a C++ multithreading framework. The code has been modified to support the ablit library (e.g. render threads).

Enjoy
Jürgen

Good work, Jürgen. Hope to see soon a complete open GL implementation ( Hardware accelerated). Any possibility to get Open GL shaders?

Thx,

Most likely not. I agree with the Friedens, that we have to re-write the whole graphics sub system to achieve that goal (I might look into MESA5 or at least the API, which implements a full OpenGL1.4 API - which is implemented in MESA4 already thru ARB extension).

However, I hope we will see a new backend system (new graphics.library etc.) at a later stage. I hope I can upgrade the interface to support this new API then (so, in that way, shaders might also be available thru ablit - but this will only be a compatibiliy wrapper, in case you still want to use the ablit lib).

Whooa really fast, I thought you told me on utilitybase you had for about 4 weeks before going for a release... Well done : a projet that is in advance compared to his deadline

However too bad for my own project because I needed glut and you did not included it in your port So I'll have to wait a bit more I guess...

@abalaban

Actually, I was refering to GLUT. I decided to release without GLUT, because somebody else can do that now (?), or I can release that later. It will be kind of separate any way (ablitglut.library).

Great work! It is very nice to have multiple 3D options available.
