I've read more about this and it seems like the step taken was not quite
the step advertised. What they exposed was the GL interface to the
VideoCore GPU. The code running on the VideoCore is still heavily locked
down. If you want in the VideoCore its NDA city. The ARM core code that
marshals GL call arguments/return values and sends them to/from the
VideoCore is what is now open source. So a GPL program could use direct GL
Still a good step in the right direction but they should have been clearer
about what was being released.
