    It will be GL 3.2 and 3.3. According to the "Status of OpenGL 3.x features in Mesa" file on freedesktop.org:

    http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/tree/docs/GL3.txt

    The last remaining feature needed for full 3.3 compatibility is "pretty much done". (I suspect that they're waiting on whatever's missing from GLSL1.5)

      GL 3.3 requires GLSL 3.30, not just 1.50. The changes are likely doable, but I wouldn't be too surprised if they'er not done. Hopefully they are, GLSL 3.30 is when it started to get bearable to use.

        Maybe they'll skip Mesa 10.0 and go directly to Mesa 11.0?

          And according to the GL3.txt document, the GLSL new 3.30 features are basically done. I haven't looked at the code (or maybe it's in a branch somewhere), but supposedly the GLSL 3.30 features are almost finished. Who knows, that line of the document has been that way for a while, so maybe someone's already finished the necessary changes and not updated the document.

            Oh, believe me, we've thought about it! The FAQ entry alone would be hilarious: "Why is there no Mesa 10?" ... "Q: Why didn't you just make Mesa 10 louder?" "A: uh...This Mesa goes to 11..."

            We'll have to see. If nothing else, it was hilarious to talk about.

              It has to one-up DX versioning, thus the next version must be Mesa Black.
