Mac (M1/M2) 上的 Asahi Linux 支援 OpenGL ES 3.1

在「The first conformant M1 GPU driver」這邊看到 Mac (M1 系列與 M2 系列) 上的 Asahi Linux 支援 OpenGL ES 3.1 了。

文章裡面有提到,目前 macOS 上沒有業界標準介面可以用:

Unlike ours, the manufacturer’s M1 drivers are unfortunately not conformant for any standard graphics API, whether Vulkan or OpenGL or OpenGL ES. That means that there is no guarantee that applications using the standards will work on your M1/M2 (if you’re not running Linux).

也許有機會會看到有人 backport 回 macOS 上?

Windows 3.1 下的 GPT client

前幾天在 Hacker News 上看到「Show HN: WinGPT – AI assistant for Windows 3.1 (」這篇,原始文章「WinGPT: AI Assistant for Windows 3.1」在介紹 Windows 3.1 下的 GPT client。

雖然反差很大 (一個 20 世紀的 GUI 環境配上最新科技),但從 Hacker News 的討論可以看到,最熱烈的是在 16-bit 環境下實作 TLS 1.3 連線,也就原文裡的這段,提到了他是原生支援 TLS 1.3:

WinGPT connects to the OpenAI API server natively with TLS 1.3, so it doesn't require a proxy on a modern machine to terminate TLS. To see how I did this and some of the challenges, take a look at Modern TLS on 16-bit Windows. (As you'll see on that page, this is not a secure implementation).

不過他不是從零開始解,而是基於 wolfSSL 的實作,因為 wolfSSL 有支援 16-bit compiler,就不需要從零開始:

WolfSSL stood out among the pack as it had explicit 16-bit compiler support while being fully-featured and well-supported.

這是讓人看到會「蛤?」的東西 XD
