According to http://www.techspot.com/news/40079-catalyst-108-brings-support-for-opengl-es-20-aa-on-sc2.html , the Catalyst 10.8 drivers provide OpenGL ES 2.0 support.  The OpenGL extension string doesn't list the "WGL_EXT_create_context_es2_profile" extension on MS Windows though, so how are we meant to access it?  The only way I can find at the moment is to access it via the egl entry points in "atioglxx.dll", but is there a better way?
