    New standards land, primarily driving mobile technology, a little ARM compression mixed in.

    ASTC, not to be confused with ATSC, the american digital broadcast standard. Yikes.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Kudos to Alistair! Comprehensibly written and with just about right amount of comments. What didn't go amiss is it's also a rather good news for us SW developers. I must admit I wasn't following much where OpenGL was going (I was rather busy adopting OpenCL lately), but it looks like I'll be able to port most OpenGL apps directly to 4.3 and start using advantages it brings without much fiddling with library incompatibilities. Once it works it's a lot easier to adopt parts of the code to new and faster routines 4.3 brings to the table, rather than wonder what all changed and for what purpose even before first private builds. Better portability is a nice boon too

    Opengl needs some work still so that gaming can evolve on Linux!

    Worry not, for Valve is seemingly working on that very issue!
