OpenGL ES database ES 3.1 and 3.2 support, capability listing pages

After the recent overhaul I now also have added support for OpenGL ES 3.1 and 3.2 to the OpenGL ES hardware database and the Android app. Both versions added lots of new capabilities that have been lacking from the client application and database, so even though there are lots of reports for OpenGL ES 3.1 and […]

My first ever mobile app is now available over at Google’s PlayStore! This is a premiere for me, and though I wasn’t on wether to spend the 25$ registration fee for the google’s developer console, I hope many android apps and games will follow.   [appbox googleplay de.saschawillems.glescapsviewer] The OpenGL ES CapsViewer is the mobile counterpart […]

OpenGL ES Hardware Database Preview

It took (a bit) longer than expected, but I finally got the first preview of the online OpenGL ES Hardware Database online. I want this to be the match to the widely used OpenGL Hardware Database (filled by the glCapsViewer). Where the former is aimed at developing desktop applications with OpenGL, the later one is […]
