Opengl 4.0 Is Relesed

OpenGL® 4.0 specification are out now.OpeGL provide specifications for 2D and 3D graphics API. Below are the new feature of this release:

> OpenGL shading language now has two new shader stages that enable the GPU to offload geometry tessellation from the CPU; per-sample fragment shaders and programmable fragment shader input positions; drawing of data generated by OpenGL, or external APIs such as OpenCL, without CPU intervention
Codezero adds support for ARMv7 in v0.3

Codezero Release v0.3 adds support for the latest ARMv7 platforms, particularly the recently released quad core Cortex-A9 microprocessors. The current release is a major milestone in the Codezero project as multi-core partitioning of the embedded platforms is now a reality.

> OpenGL 3.3 specifications are also released with a set of ARB extensions, to enable as much OpenGL 4.0 functionality as possible on previous generation GPU hardware.
The latest specifications can be downloaded today in OpenGL Registry. An official feedback forum is online at the OpenGL Forums.
