Minecraft has tried to continue support for GL 2.0 and up. This is a great mistake as any GPU that old, which is from the '90s, cannot and will never run Minecraft today under any circumstances. We need to support newer GL versions so that 1% of the player base does not make 99% of the player base incredibly lag. Minecraft uses extremely inefficient methods to render just to support these versions, so allowing devs to finally use at least GL 3 will greatly increase Minecraft performance and bring popularity back to the game which it has lost- despite Minecraft's rising popularity today, which has only been harmed by the performance which is greatly unoptimized.
Please update to an OpenGL version that is not from 2004, so that we can get the best performance.
TLDR: Mojang uses old OpenGL (2.0) and it needs to update to at least OpenGL 3.0 because no one uses these old GPUs and it will greatly improve performance. No modder, who can see decompiled Minecraft code, will disagree as they see Mojang's code.
