SIGGRAPH 07: Review board unveils new version of 3D graphics API

The OpenGL architecture review board officially unveiled OpenGL 3 at Siggraph in San Diego earlier this week.

The official name of what was code-named 'Open GL Longs Peak' OpenGL 3 promises increased efficiency for the 2D and 3D graphics standard.

Specs are on track to be finalised at the next meeting of the ARB at the end of the month - the official public specification should therefore be out at the end of September, once the 30-day approval from the Khronos Group, which looks after the API, has passed.

More information can be found at the official site.
