    Default Mesa 10.1 Released With Many Open-Source Driver Improvements

    Phoronix: Mesa 10.1 Released With Many Open-Source Driver Improvements

    Mesa 10.1 was released this morning as the latest three-month update to this 3D library and graphics driver stack used throughout the Linux desktop ecosystem. With Mesa 10.1 there are tons of improvements, while one of the big highlights is OpenGL 3.3 support for the open-source Radeon and Nouveau drivers.

    My goodness, what are people at Phoronix going to have left to complain about?

    CrossFire, OpenCL, not being able to easily swap out / upgrade drivers, Video Decode / Encode, Nouveau reclocking.

    ( ^ Not my personal list, just the big ticket items I've seen lately. Personally I'm fairly happy with Mesa )

    The moust importante thing for me would be easy updating drivers.
    maybe the BIG patch thingy that was proposed would help witht his situation?
    updating drivers without having to update everything else would be awesome and it probably is one of the things that is slowing things down on linux.

    - A GUI and/or TUI for configuring graphics stuff, monitoring temperature. Already exists somehow (driconf), but lacks temperature, voltage, fan speed monitoring...
    - real, nice fan control; let's beat the proprietary drivers at that. People are responsible for what they do, after all. Only current way to do it is VBIOS edit, which is risky.
    - overclocking and underclocking. Only current way to do it is VBIOS edit, which is risky.

    I thought rolling release distros like Arch, Manjaro, and openSUSE Tumbleweed already do that.

    Right, I still can't overclock my Haswell. Well, I can, but it works slower. Otherwise, it's ben running on par with windows for a good six months now (according to Michael's tests), so I don't think we'll see much in performance. Rather, functionality. OC'ing would be one, for sure.

    Will I see any improvements on my celeron 2955u HD graphics if I upgrade from mesa 10.0.3 to 10.1?
