Web Goes 3D with the Release of WebGL 1.0

During the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, California, Khronos Group presented the final specification of the standard WebGL 1.0, which is designed to provide hardware accelerated 3D graphics in browsers without the need for plug-ins. Khronos Group industry consortium today released the final version of the specification WebGL 1.0. They offer the possibility to use tools for hardware acceleration of 3D-graphics in browsers with support for HTML5 without using plug-ins. WebGL JavaScript determines binding to OpenGL ES 2.0, allowing you to include 3D-graphics in documents for browsers on any platform that supports industry-standard API OpenGL or OpenGL ES. According to a source, WebGL is supported by major players, including Apple, Google, Mozilla and Opera. New development is already supported in several versions of browsers like Mozilla Firefox 4.0, Google Chrome 9.0, Opera and Apple Mac OS Safari. With WebGL graphics, implemented by means of OpenGL ES 2.0, available at virtually all platforms, where there is a browser – desktop, mobile and embedded systems, according to developer’s specifications.

WebGL 1.0 specification is one of the flagships of Web 3D. This technology is not supported by Internet Explorer 9. The industry consortium, Khronos Group, announced the finalization of the specification Stock WebGL 1.0 . WebGL will help create a JavaScript link to OpenGL ES 2.0 (Open Graphics Library for Embedded Systems) to run 3D graphics directly into the web browser (calculated by the GPU 3D graphics card compatible) and on any platform supporting the standard OpenGL and OpenGL ES.

WebGL leverages web technologies such as the Canvas tag in HTML5 and has received the support of Apple, Google, Mozilla and Opera Software. WebGL is supported in Google Chrome 9, Mozilla Firefox 4, and Opera 11.50 (pre-release) and development versions of Safari. Google offers several experiments with WebGL. It’s also no surprise that the browser side always on Internet Explorer 9 Microsoft is missing. OpenGL gives indeed the “buttons” to Microsoft because of competition with Direct3D (part of DirectX). The announcement comes while Adobe has also lifted the veil on Flash Player 11 whose main feature is the 3D hardware acceleration based depending on the host platform either DirectX or OpenGL. WebGL already has competition.

After the release of the specification standard WebGL 1.0 organization Khronos Group intends to proceed with the development of yet another Web-based Standard – WebCL. The basic idea is very similar to WebGL and is the integration of JavaScript and OpenCL for parallel computing. With the help of WebCL, developers can build web applications that can fully utilize the resources available to the user’s multi-core computer processors and graphics processors. On assurances of Khronos Group, Standard WebCL may be useful for editing photos and video, as well as for the treatment of physical effects in games. Information on the timing of release WebCL has not yet been reported.

Windows Phone 7 to get HTML5 and Silverlight

Microsoft is working hard to release the update for its Windows Phone based operating system known as Windows Phone 7. This approach of Microsoft of launching the updates after considerable amount of usage of any of its products is quite old. People who have been using the Windows operating systems are well aware of what these updates carry within themselves and what all kind of issues are addressed in them. For example, the service pack of Windows XP added the firewall feature in XP which earlier was not there. Similarly, the update of Windows Phone 7 will also add new feature to the operating system and will also fix some of the known bugs and issues in this operating system. There have been news regarding this forthcoming updates name and it was concluded that this update is code named as Mango. Mango is supposed to include two very much required features in it and these features are – First: Support for HTML 5 and Second: Microsoft Silverlight Runtime. Though Microsoft is still working on the same and there has been no official statement regarding the same but the speculations are that Mango will include the two features for sure. Both these features will enhance the power of the internet browser available in Windows Phone 7 and will make it more compatible with the new HTML and Silverlight technologies. This will help the users to work on more and more web applications and destinations without facing the incompatibility issues.

HTML 5 is a technology which is similar to the Flash technology of Adobe. It can be considered more advanced and lightweight design of Adobe’s Flash. HTML 5 makes possible for the developers to design very clear and smart animations for the web and it has many more undisclosed features as far as coding and implementation is considered. It is the successor of widely used HTML and XHTML technologies which have not seen any update for years now and are on the verge of getting obsolete in front of many new technologies coming in. HTML 5 includes many new HTML tags for easily adding and playing the media and graphics on the web. It brings a universal platform for displaying media without the need of special APIs and other codec. It also makes easy for including rich text in the web applications and websites by giving place to many text related Tags in the coding. Error handling and execution has also been improved a lot in this newest version of HTML which is considered to be the parent language of all the websites. On the other hand Microsoft Silverlight is a Runtime environment for many media delivery platforms and other rich media applications on the web. This makes easy for the designers and developers to let users view the media on any platform and on any browser. Many web destinations use this technology for media sharing and streaming and browsers which don’t have support for the same fall short in displaying such media content.

Silverlight and HTML5 is Coming to Windows Phone 7

Recently, a spree on speculations taking place around about some upcoming updates for Windows Phone 7 and now one of the updates has got a codename – Mango. The rumors have highlighted that; Mango will add the Silverlight runtime and HTML5 support, not to cite the additional languages too. It’s also contemplated that Microsoft might increase the enterprise features with Mango, especially additional support for Exchange ActiveSync policies that enforce security requirements for mobile devices. Much of the guesses have hinted that Steve Ballmer will be giving the lowdown on the update at CES, so we’re looking forward to that. A great number of news is being spread recently about some forthcoming updates for Windows Phone 7 and now one of the updates has gotten a codename – Mango.

It seems like Microsoft’s Windows Mobile division isn’t wasting any time on improving their latest Windows Phone 7 operating system. The Sources have also revealed that Microsoft say that the Redmond based company is churning out a major update that could be ready for a late summer or early fall 2011 release.

The WP7 update is purportedly being codenamed “Mango.”   There is nothing fruity about the actual update. There is also fair chance that Microsoft might add on some more enterprise features with Mango.  Sources are pointing to additional support for Exchange ActiveSync policies that enforce security requirements for mobile devices.

All of those features may sound intriguing, but the update is still a long time away. Microsoft could put in use the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to possibly unveil or at the least announce the update, along with a possible Windows tablet or slate.  In the meanwhile Microsoft could be releasing some minor updates as soon January or February.

The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is a major technology-related trade show which is held each January in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada. It is not basically opened to the public; the Consumer Electronics Association-sponsored show typically hosts previews of products and new product announcements. CES rose to prominence after COMDEX was canceled in the technology related trade show.

The first ever CES was held in June 1967 in New York, New York. It was a follow up from the Chicago Music Show, which until then had served as the main event for exhibiting consumer electronics. The event had 17,500 attendees and over 100 exhibitors; the commencement speaker was Motorola chairman Bob Galvin. From the year 1978 to 1994, CES was held twice each year: once in January in Las Vegas known as Winter Consumer Electronics Show (WCES) and once in June in Chicago, Illinois, known as Summer Consumer Electronics Show (SCES).

The 2011 CES exhibition is currently scheduled for Thursday, January 6 to Sunday, January 9 2011

There won’t be any groundbreaking updates, but Microsoft could introduce the copy and paste feature, along with some of the minor bugs users are experiencing.
