glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"

That's not a program installed by default, but it is available in the AUR. I'm guessing there is no default program to do this? –  Jeroen Bollen Apr 8 '14 at 19:59
@JeroenBollen It's in the mesa-demos package in extra. You can also use glewinfo if you have glew already installed. –  Leiaz Apr 8 '14 at 22:52
