    Phoronix: Intel Hopes For OpenGL ES 3.0 Compliance In Mesa 9.1

    Last summer the open-source Intel Linux graphics driver reached the milestone of being officially OpenGL ES 2.0 conformant with the Khronos specification. Intel has now submitted their OpenGL ES 3.0 results to the Khronos Group for validation with Ivy Bridge hardware and the Mesa 9.1 branch in hopes of being one of the first driver implementations to be officially GLES 3.0 conformant...

    So why is MESA 9.1 still MESA 9.1 and not MESA 10.0 ?

    OpenGL bump - present? YES.

    So all requirement for bumping major number are satisfied!

    And GJ Intel.

    BTW who will change wikipedia entry for MESA? Since its officially implementation of OpenGL ?

      The plan is to only increase the major version for new "desktop" GL versions.

        Mesa 10 will be released when OpenGL 3.3 is reached. For our luck OpenGL 3.3 = DX 10 so...

          Still boggles my mind that Haswell will only get support for OpenGL 4.0, even with their proprietary driver. And to think they initially wanted to support only 3.3 for Haswell. Intel needs to support 4.3 for Haswell.

            Kudos to Intel. They're doing a good job lately.

              That is UNFAIR :P

              And MESA is starting to be "mobile first" too!

              Not increasing major number of MESA with each new OpenGL ES will only increase confusion.
