Is Mesh Shader support planned for OpenGL?

I was looking to add AMD support for this Minecraft mod, but afaict, there is no support for mesh shaders from AMD on OpenGL.

Hi @Cryolithic ,

Thanks for your query. I have whitelisted you and moved the post to the appropriate forum.

I have forwarded your query to the OpenGL team. 

Thanks.

I would also like to see an AMD mesh shader extension for OpenGL, just like the NVIDIA one. They are extremly useful in general and its sad knowing that the hardware exposes the feature but only in a different API.

Hi @Cryolithic ,

The OpenGL team has replied that they have plan to support mesh shader for AMD OpenGL driver in the future.

Thanks.

 Hello Dipak,

I notice that there have been new features added to the OpenGL recently, which is great to see! Do you know if mesh support is on the roadmap currently and when that might be (quarter target is fine), or is it in the backlog?

That are amazing news! I hope that AMD works together with Khronos to create a cross vendor extension since GL_NV_mesh_shader already exists and vulkan has one too.
