I must be in Bizarro world or something, I'm actually looking forward to these IE11 updates. :D

I doubt they'll bother to make any type of deal out of this specific version now that IE updates by default.  The current version on 8.1 for me is 11.0.2, if they do bump it to 11.1 internally they'll still market it as IE11 until Windows 9 comes next year and we get IE12.

You're making a lot of assumptions there.

Perhaps I know too many web developers still angry at MS for IE 6.

 

I mentioned IE 11 and they told me webgl support is still non existent due to the lack of stencils.

 

 

 

Has this been fixed?

If you read this post and the changelogs posted on the previous page stenciling operations should be supported now, no? Well, besides SUBPIXEL_BITS, I believe.

As Boo Berry mentioned and I posted in this thread, stenciling operations are now supported beside subpixel_bits.

Since I currently don't have any leaked updated installed (did a clean install) I forgot to check out if 11.0.7 supports HTML5 YouTube any better (hoping for VP9 support mainly), could you check for me? http://www.youtube.com/html5

According to the page, IE (spring update version) still will not support WebM VP8 or MSE & WebM VP9.

 

I hope that Microsoft will push out IE 11.0.7+ to all users as soon as possible and not require the full spring upgrade to receive it, to ensure quick adaption. It does solve many WebGL problems I've experienced although still lags behind others (5196 vs 5479 in Chrome, 5460 in Firefox). It will have a much lower adaption rate if Microsoft only supports it via the spring upgrade as they've done in the past by requiring specific service packs. I think Microsoft also supports less hardware yet for WebGL and otherwise reverts to software rendering--even if the machine supports hardware WebGL in Chrome and others.

This demo also works fine in new build no Shader compilation errors etc. WebGL support has been drastically improved I must say:

Connect Feedback URL Bug: https://connect.micr...working-in-ie11

 

Transparent Canvas bug also fixed: https://connect.micr...-gradients#tabs

 

Keep it up fixing bugs IE, one day you will make us forget about IE6 debacle.
