    Phoronix: Mesa 7.11 Brings Much-Needed Linux Graphics Driver Improvements

    After a short delay, Mesa 7.11 has been released. This is the user-space library for providing OpenGL support under Linux for the open-source Intel, ATI/AMD, and NVIDIA drivers, among other hardware and software-based drivers. The Mesa 7.11 release also offers updates to the Gallium3D driver architecture. Here is some of what you can expect to find on Mesa 7.11.

    Fedora 15 will most likely get Mesa 7.11 final as an update, it currently has 7.11-rc4 in updates-testing.

          Probably xorg-edgers ppa is the best bet.

          I've been using mesa 7.11 pre-releases for a while now since I've switched to Fedora. A recent compile, from 7-29 I think, solved a nasty hard lockup problem I was experiencing once every 2-3 days with my ATI card.

          Good stuff.
