        No, still only OpenGL 2.
        Code:
        OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
        OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD PITCAIRN
        OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 9.2.0 (git-cdad129)
        OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30

          Some bits and pieces required for OpenGL 3.x are still missing. AFAIK it's mostly transform feedback and msaa. It's still great to finally see radeonsi evolve into a usable driver.

            The funny thing being, as an owner of a RadeonSI, the catalyst driver is pretty much both unstable and unusable for any kind of graphical work beyond simply rendering a desktop.

              It doesn't even render a desktop. Run KDE with default settings, start a konsole, resize the konsole window and X segfaults. Ubuntu is supported - Kubuntu apparently not.
