OpenGL 1.1 is required.
ARB_texture_cube_map is required.
ARB_seamless_cube_map affects the definition of this extension.
This extension is written against the OpenGL 1.5 Specification.
In unextended OpenGL, cube maps are treated as sets of six, independent
texture images. Once a face is selected from the set, it is treated exactly
as any other two-dimensional texture would be. When sampling linearly from
the texture, all of the individual texels that would be used to to create
the final, bilinear sample values are taken from the same cube face. The
normal, two-dimensional texture coordinate wrapping modes are honored.
This sometimes causes seams to appear in cube maps.
ARB_seamless_cube_map addresses this issue by providing a mechanism whereby
an implementation could take each of the taps of a bilinear sample from
a different face, spanning face boundaries and providing seamless filtering
from cube map textures. However, in ARB_seamless_cube_map, this feature was
exposed as a global state, affecting all bound cube map textures. It was not
possible to mix seamless and per-face cube map sampling modes during
multisampling. Furthermore, if an application included cube maps that were
meant to be sampled seamlessly and non-seamlessly, it would have to track
this state and enable or disable seamless cube map sampling as needed.
This extension addresses this issue and provides an orthogonal method for
allowing an implementation to provide a per-texture setting for enabling
seamless sampling from cube maps.

"If TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_SEAMLESS is disabled globally and the value of the

of the texture's TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_SEAMLESS parameter is TRUE, seamless
cube map sampling is enabled, and texels are read from adjacent faces as
described in the ARB_seamless_cube_map extension."

Dependencies on ARB_seamless_cube_map
If ARB_seamless_cube_map is not supported, the value of the
TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_SEAMLESS token is still used by this extension.
However, seamless cubemap filtering can only be enabled or disabled on a
per-texture basis as glEnable and glDisable will not accept
TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_SEAMLESS. Even if ARB_seamless_cube_map is not
supported, the behavior of seamless cube map sampling is as described in
that extension. The logic to enable seamless filtering will behave as if
TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_SEAMLESS were disabled (the default state).
New State
In table 6.16, Texture Objects, p. 242, add the following:

New Implementation Dependent State
1) How does this extension affect ARB_seamless_cube_map? Which takes
priority? Explain, in plain English, how seamless filtering gets enabled.
RESOLVED: These two extensions are orthogonal and neither requires the
other to function. Seamless filtering is enabled for a cube map texture
either when TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_SEAMLESS is enabled globally or when the
value of the individual texture's TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_SEAMLESS parameter
is TRUE. The default for both extensions is to leave cube map sampling as
described in unextended OpenGL. Thus, an application may use either
extension and its behavior will be the same, regardless of the presence
of support for or use of the other.
