Hi,

seeing Khronos WebGL talks seem some webgl implementation is using  GL_ARB_robustness (and WGL_ARB_create_context_robustness) as a mitigation to DoS attacks via WebGL.. I saw also a GL_ARB_robustness2 extension is in the works also and considering even now Mesa has support for it I ask as even ogl 4.2 beta drivers doesn't support it is if amd support coming soon this support.. say this year?

I hope GL_ARB_robustness2 reports hardware that avoids locking GPU even with long shaders via some QoS mechanisms.. ATI graphics core next will support that no?
