New Raspberry Pi 4
#11
Looks like there have been some changes in the development for the Video Core VC3 and V3D OpenGL drivers for the Pi, namely the Pi 4.   Apparently Eric Anholt who was originally developing the drivers is not longer doing so and Iago Toral and others have stepped to take over the task.  Seems like they are work hard to add more OpenGL ES features to the Pi such as OpenGL Logic Operations which was missing in the previous ports. The are also looking at OpenGL ES 3.1 and adding Compute Shaders to the Pi 4.

Sounds like the Pi 4 is heading more towards the Game Dev board that it was originally intended for:

amazing news, fully opening the GPU will really make it a game coders dream (well that and an Nvidia 2080) can't wait to see the full results of this work.
