First of all this update is a few days overdue, I spent all of day 10 working on coding and since then I have been travelling the last couple of days so I haven't got around to doing an update until now, sorry for the inconvenience.
Day10 went well I managed to tidy up my Mesa patch series and send off a first attempt at implementing ARB_arrays_of_arrays , this first series allows code to be compiled and run when linking is not needed between shaders. I will continue working on the linking code and will provide an update once a second series is ready to finish off the arrays of arrays Mesa implementation.
As for the piglit tests I have submitted a large number of compile tests for review, I've got a few execution tests in progress and I have a few geometry shader tests still to write.
All in all I'm very happy with the progress I've made over the past two weeks and I'd like to thank you all again for the opportunity to work on Mesa as an independent developer.
Thanks for all the hard work. 🙂
No problem. Thanks for backing me 🙂
Thanks for the great work Tim. Looking forward to the next crowd funding campaign (hope there is one). 🙂
Oh...and happy birthday...for a few days back. 🙂
Thanks. Not sure if or when there will be another campaign, need to finish off the outstanding work from this one first. But will let everyone know if I do decide to do one.
Have you merged your work to Mesa? http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/tree/docs/GL3.txt shows GL_ARB_arrays_of_arrays as started and not DONE.
I've continued to work on the extension in my spare time (which I don't have a huge amount of hence the fund-raising), but have gotten side tracked at times and worked on other bits of Mesa along the way (there is lots to be done).
It just so happens I've just sent a new patchset implementing most of the outstanding work not long before checking the email for this website which alerted me to your post. You can see the patchset here:
Hmm, I just reread this "and will provide an update once a second series is ready to finish off the arrays of arrays Mesa implementation" I should probably do another update 🙂
Thank you for your reply! Much appreciated. I'm glad the work is progressing.
