    Don't fret just yet - it sure looks to me like Neil implemented it on Ivybridge as well. So you should get it on at least one of your machines. Apparently Sandybridge hardware doesn't support BC7/BPTC, so there's not much the driver developers can do about that.

    Default OpenGL 4x trifecta

    It's starting to look to me like Mesa 11 - when it is released - could or will contain all three OpenGL upgrades: 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2 at once.

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

    Save one or two features down the line, all are either a) done or b) in progress. The big question is GLSL for these three.

    it is not starting to look this was said in september at mesa presentation. and it was also said 4.2 is most probable since 2 of hardest challenges are in 4.0

    Could somebody make a spreadsheet of the GL3.txt file? Some parts confuse me, e.g.

    GL 3.2 --- all DONE: i965, nv50, nvc0, r600, radeonsi
    ...
    BGRA vertex order (GL_ARB_vertex_array_bgra) DONE (r300, swrast)
    ...

    Doesn't that mean r300 and swrast haven't implemented it yet? And if so, why is it marked as "all DONE"? Unless, of course, those two CAN'T implement it. But I'm like, 99% sure swrast HAS implemented it so... confused (like I said).

    A spreadsheet of the .txt file's list of GL features with a column for each MESA driver that can marked+colored as simple "DONE", "IN-PROGRESS", "NOT SUPPORTED", "NOT STARTED" etc I think would make it much easier to keep track of what's what, but that's just my two-cents
