Discuss the future of EGL, GLX, and OpenGL ES on Linux

A session at X.Org Developer's Conference 2012

Friday 21st September, 2012

4:00pm to 4:30pm (CET)

The last Linux OpenGL ABI dates from 2000. The world has dramatically changed since then. Thanks to the proliferation of smartphones and tables, OpenGL ES and EGL have risen in popularity. Most Linux distros don't ship either OpenGL ES or EGL, and the existing libGL requires applications to use archaic means to access any function added to OpenGL since 1998. I would like to open a discussion for a revision of the Linux OpenGL ABI and a set of recommendations for distros and application developers.
