Adopter's package released for OpenGL Embedded graphics

The Khronos Group, an industry group promoting graphics and multimedia standards, has finalized an adopter's package and conformance testing procedure
for the 1.0 release of OpenGL Embedded Subset (ES), a 2D/3D graphics standard for embedded devides.

The package includes conformance tests, an open source sample implementation, and an executable copy of Hybrid Graphic's Gerbera solution supporting
an OpenGL ES library for Windows. It is available to interested companies that execute an Adopter's Agreement and pay a one-time fee of $1,500.
According to Khronos, the conformance tests will promote consistent implementation. Adopters may use the OpenGL ES trademark on conformant products
after paying testing fees. Full details of the Adopter's Agreement, the Adopters Package, and the OpenGL ES Conformance Testing Procedure can be found
online.

"The OpenGL ES 1.0 conformance test will ensure application developers can depend on the integrity and robustness of products featuring the OpenGL ES
logo," stated Shawn Underwood, Director of Marketing for visualization at SGI.
