Windows It's about time! Microsoft has just detailed its next update to Windows Phone 7. This update, codenamed 'Mango', will bump the version number from 7.0.7 to 7.1, and will include 500 new features (how Redmond reached that number, god only knows). The developer tools are out in beta form today. There's a lot of cool stuff in there, such as the already known pseudo-multitasking and the hardware accelerated Internet Explorer 9, but also a lot of stuff we didn't know anything about. Also, news on new hardware partners, and, of course, Nokia.

Where's OpenGL?


In the same place as DirectX and XNA are on iOS and Android.

Have more questions?

Not comparable. OpenGL is available virtually anywhere, except such "walled gardens" who don't allow any competing libraries to be present (for example with restricting access to NDK how MS does in this case).

However some tried to implement XNA to other platforms:

And what do you know? It uses OpenGL!

So again, why do you need it in the first place?

One question yes.

Here is where XNA is on iOS and Android:

Well, actually I guess it is now here:

https://github.com/mono/MonoGame

So, my question is, "Where is OpenGL on Windows Phone 7?"

Sorry, I just had to. :-)
