    Phoronix: Mesa Now Supports Another OpenGL 4.5 Extension

    While Mesa is still racing towards OpenGL 4.0 compliance, another OpenGL 4.5 extension can now be crossed off the Mesa TODO list...

      Thanks.

      It's just me or the gap is closing more rapidly than expected one year ago (for example)?

        There are a lot more people working on Mesa today than there were a few years ago.

          yeah and it looks like by the items marked as done in the todo list i believe mesa will jump almost straight to opengl 4.3 like it did in from gl 3.1 to 3.3

              I doubt compute shaders from 4.3 will be done right away.

              I expect a jump to 4.2 first, then Intel will finish up compute shaders which will give them 4.3 and GLES 3.1. Then probably full GL4.5 soon after that. By then, hopefully the new GL 5 or whatever they call it will be to the point where Mesa can at least start working towards it.
