That''s nice and all, but what does this mean for OpenGL users? I don''t have time to read all *10 pages, and the intro doesn''t come out and say why. It probably doesn''t apply to me, yet, because I''m not that critical. But I''m still interested in state-of-the-art ''built-in'' features--so when exactly will OpenGL v1.4 be released?

YES Was about time, I was desperately waiting for that. Now we just have to wait until NV and ATI include it into their drivers.

It''s already in nVidia''s beta drivers from what I''ve read. Haven''t tried it out yet myself.

Apparently it''s the latest ATI developer drivers, too. It won''t be in the public drivers until the Catalyst 3.3s (at earliest), which should appear next month, if ATI continues its current release trends.

Regarding the extension, it looks rather good! It doesn''t appear to handle interleaved arrays as easily as ATI_vertex_array_object, though. . .

Do you know if this will be supported in the radeon 9000 for the next driver release?

It should be. The 9700 doesn''t support anything more than the 9000 in terms of vertex buffering capabilities. . .
