Phoronix: Broadcom VC4 Gallium3D Driver Soon To Merge Into Mesa
The Broadcom VC4 Gallium3D driver, which provides the open-source user-space component to an OpenGL driver for the Raspberry Pi, will soon likely be added to mainline Mesa...
Does this Driver include the Video Decoder?
no - the video decoder is a separate unit which does not currently have an open driver.
