Memory management recommendation for OpenSL ES 1.0 & 1.0.1

Hi Everyone,

The OpenMAX AL working group recently released OpenMAX AL 1.0.1. One of the updates to the OpenMAX AL specification is a section on memory management, and this section will also be added to the next version of the OpenSL ES specification. The working group therefore recommends that the Memory Management section (section 3.5) in the OpenMAX AL 1.0.1 specification is used as a guide for implementations of OpenSL ES version 1.0 and version 1.0.1.

The OpenMAX AL 1.0.1 specification can be found at

Best Regards,


Erik, when does that next spec version come out?

We have not yet set a date for the release of the next version of OpenSL ES. It will most likely be some time during the latter part of 2010, probably Q3.

Thanks great couldnt you be more direct

Sorry Adam, but I can’t give you a more specific date at this time. Keep an eye on the Khronos news and events section for more information:
