Yet another important release has happened today and that is the availability of Mesa 7.1 Release Candidate 1. As described by Tungsten's Brian Paul in the release announcement, Mesa 7.1 RC1 has a lot of new code, a new build system, and other important work. Mesa 7.1 RC1 can be downloaded from their beta page or can be checked out from their git tree at FreeDesktop.org. This next major release candidate is coming nearly a year after the Mesa 7.0.0 release and it's been about two months since their last minor release (Mesa 7.0.3).
