OpenGL 4.1, yes it is here
« on: July 26, 2010, 06:49:57 PM »
New OpenGL specification is out,

numbered 4.1. The additions present are quite welcome, my favourite are:
  • Loading shader binaries (I wish this would be present on GL 3.0 hardware as well)
  • Shader-stencil interop
  • Further OpenGL-OpenCL interop enabled, now with events

You can read the specs with changes since 4.0 marked here:
OpenGL 4.1 specs

The supported hardware models ares NVIDIA GeForce GT4xx series and ATi Radeon 5xxx series (hardware tesselator required).
