Ian Romanick of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center mailed out the announcement minutes before midnight in Portland. As we have been covering in dozens of articles over the past three months, there are a ton of new features to Mesa 10.2!
Should you not be up to speed on Mesa 10.2, see Mesa 10.2 Features Are Quite Exciting and Features You Will Not Find In Mesa 10.2. Mesa 10.2 brings features like the OpenMAX state tracker, suitable Broadwell support, initial Intel Cherryview support, OpenGL 3.x LLVMpipe support, new AMD support, and a ton of other enhancements. Mesa is now at over 1.4 million lines of code.
We have also delivered Mesa 10.2 OpenGL performance benchmarks and other tests from our many Mesa 10.2 articles. The next major release up will be Mesa 10.3 and should come in three months, unless core OpenGL 4.0 support is reached by then in which case the release would be renamed to Mesa 11.0.
