So I was glancing at the OpenGL 4.00 API Quick Reference Card, and noticed these are black, not blue (pg. 4). Implying that these are non-deprecated features.
So DITHER and LOGIC_OP are really operations folks can count on going forward with new OpenGL apps?
And checking the spec, it appears the AUX_BUFFERS/AUXi references should be blue (deprecated) not black.
