Royalty-free 3D graphics API adds 3D features and integrated GPU computing

Khronos Group has announced the release of the OpenGL ES 3.1 specification, offering significant functionality enhancements to the royalty-free 3D graphics mobile device API. OpenGL ES 3.1 includes computing shaders written in GLSL ES shading languages, and can share data with the graphics pipeline. Applications can program the vertex and fragment shader stages of the GPU independently, and can mix-and-match vertex and fragment programs without an explicit linking step. Other additions to the latest OpenGL ES include enhanced texturing functionality, shading language improvements, and optional extensions. OpenGL ES 3.1 includes backward compatibility with version 2.0 and 3.0.
