    He has an R700, there isn't a working Gallium driver for those yet.
    The classic Mesa driver only supports OpenGL 2.0 for all R600 and R700 cards.

      Well, sort of. A good driver would be able to better handle the hardware limitations that are being hit by WINE. Even if it is doing things in a way that isn't very reasonable.

        Seconded. Real news based on facts, covering current development progress, which is basicaly the primary reason I track Phoronix.

          Thirded. Especially when the extension in question is used by important/interesting software, like this one is in WINE. I don't think there are even that many left 3.x+ - maybe a couple dozen?

            Fourted ;-) It is interesting as most people doesn't watch xorg/dri/mesa mailing lists.

                There are a small number of extensions missing between current drivers and full OpenGL 4 compliance (plus the GLSL updates)

                These extensions are not easy to implement, but there are not that many of them. Each one of them brings us closer to OpenGL 3/4 support in Mesa.

                I know that you don't care about open source implementations of OpenGL, only binary vendor drivers, but many of us do. When Mesa can do OpenGL 4, it will be a great day.

                  Actually I think stabilizing the current level of support (OpenGL 2.1) and improving performance is more important than full support for OpenGL 4.0 on paper.

                    Agreed, but one does not preclude the other.

                    Especially since r300g can't do higher than 2.1 anyway, as the hardware does not support it.

                    Also, many extensions need general Mesa work, which is shared between all drivers.

                      IMO it's Wine's fault; since when is it good behavior of an app to depend on a particular compiler optimization?
