The OpenGL Programming Guide provides definitive and comprehensive information on OpenGL and the OpenGL Utility Library. It is far and away the most important book on OpenGL, and is commonly referred to by programmers simply as the Red book. Last summer the OpenGL Architectural Review Board (ARB) announced the release of the version 2.0 standard, incorporating the OpenGL Shader Language (GLSL) officially into the spec. This is the biggest change in OpenGL since its inception. This new edition will provide basic information about GLSL itself, as well as all the other changes to the 1.5 and 1.0 versions. the official, comprehensive guide to GLSL itself. A few years ago, pundits were predicting the imminent demise of OpenGL. Far from expiring, however, OpenGL has had a resurgence in the last couple years, and has solidified its position as the defacto standard for high-quality computer graphics. This book remains the necessary guide for any developer doing graphics programming. The sample source code in the book will be available on the book's web site.
