Evolved from IrisGL (Integrated Raster Imaging Systems Graphic Library)
IrisGL was specific to IRIX Silicon stations
OpenGL created by Mark Segal and Kurt Akeley
“He who rejects change is the architect of decay...”
Half-float (16-bit) vertex array and pixel data formats (GL NV half float and GL ARB half float pixel).
Multisample stretch blit functionality (GL EXT framebuffer multisample and GL EXT framebuffer blit).
Non-normalized integer color internal formats for textures and renderbuffers (GL EXT texture integer).OpenGL 3.0 features
(GL EXT texture array).
“It is the eye of ignorance that assigns a fixed and unchangeable color to every object...”
