GLEE 5.3.2 Adds OpenGL 3.0 Extensions Support

GLee (GL Easy Extension library) is a free cross-platform extension loading library for OpenGL. It provides seamless support for OpenGL functions up to version 3.0 and 398 extensions.

Here is a code sample:

#include <gl\GLee.h>  // (no need to link to gl.h) 
...
if (GLEE_ARB_multitexture) //is multitexture support available?
{
  glMultiTexCoord2fARB(...); //safe to use multitexture
}
else
{
   //fallback
}

Catalyst 8.9: OpenGL Extensions – Radeon HD 4850

Here is the list of OpenGL extensions supported by the Catalyst 8.9 graphics drivers for the Radeon HD 4850 under Windows XP SP2 32-bit.


The release note says Catalyst 8.9 add the phase 1 of OpenGL 3.0 support. But what does it mean? Compared to Catalyst 8.8, Catalyst 8.9 bring only 3 new extensions:

GL_EXT_depth_buffer_float has the same role than NVIDIA GL_NV_depth_buffer_float. GL_EXT_blend_equation_separate is an OpenGL 1.5 extension and GL_AMD_texture_texture4 is not documented. But most of the new OpenGL 3 extensions quoted in the release note are not present in Catalyst 8.9 under Windows XP and Vista. Maybe AMD/ATI have introduced the same principle than NVIDIA, with a kind of OpenGL 3.0 activation somewhere (see here). But here again, no documentation is available. Or more simply, AMD want to show to the community that they do an effort to support the new major version of OpenGL, but any OpenGL 3 extension is currently available to developers. Communication is a tough art at ATI!

Catalyst 8.9, like Catalyst 8.8, still slow down the GPU when FurMark is detected (see here and here for more detail).
