Comment 1 Sven Gothel 2014-12-07 04:04:40 CET

    - Detect EGL_KHR_create_context capability and utilize if available.
    - Implement EGLContext.createContextARBImpl(..),
      allowing native DEBUG context usage, where available.
    - EGL implements SharedResourceRunner, i.e. probing profiles
      on dedicated thread using common interface.
    - Probe desktop profile/context ability
      in EGLDrawableFactory SharedResourceRunner,
      Where EGLGLnDynamicLibraryBundleInfo covers EGL + desktop GL.
    - TODO: Tests w/ capable implementation
Comment 2 Sven Gothel 2015-01-23 15:13:39 CET
    Refine criteria to allow OpenGL API usage for EGL
    It has been experienced w/ Mesa 10.3.2 (EGL 1.4/Gallium)
    that even though initial OpenGL context can be created w/o 'EGL_KHR_create_context',
    switching the API via 'eglBindAPI(EGL_OpenGL_API)' the latter 'eglCreateContext(..)' fails w/ EGL_BAD_ACCESS.
    Hence we require both: OpenGL API support _and_  'EGL_KHR_create_context'.
    FIXME: Evaluate this issue in more detail!
    FIXME: Utilization of eglBindAPI(..) must be re-evaluated in case we mix ES w/ OpenGL, see EGL 1.4 spec.
           This is due to new semantics, i.e. API is bound on a per thread base,
           hence it must be switched before makeCurrent w/ different APIs, see:

Further work to achieve this feature is being 
continued in Bug 1203.
