OpenFIMG ARM Graphics Driver Is Still Active

Linux on ARMOpenFIMG, the open-source graphics driver project that began as the GLES6410 driver for providing a full open-source 3D stack for some Samsung ARM SoCs, continues to be developed and is moving on with its OpenGL ES accelerated support.

One year ago I mentioned An Open-Source GLES Driver For Samsung's Galaxy GPU by way of this GLES6410 driver project. While this driver project is nearly a one-man effort, in the past year the project has continued and much headway has been made. In the process, the driver was also renamed to OpenFIMG. The OpenFIMG project site and code is now over on GitHub.

OpenFIMG's aim remains the same -- to provide a proper implementation of OpenGL ES 1.1 (and potentially OpenGL ES 2.0) for the 3D engine on some Samsung SOCs. The project name comes from FIMG 3DSE, which is the Samsung 3D engine as found on the S3C6410, S5P6442 and S5PC100 ARM SoCs. (Note: this OpenGL ES 3D engine isn't derived from PowerVR SGX technology).
