Released in late August was Mesa 7.1
, which was the first release of this open-source OpenGL library with an autoconf-based configuration system, various DRI driver enhancements, GL_EXT_texture_from_pixmap extension for the Xlib driver, GLSL for Intel's 965 Chipset, and ATI R500 series support
. This release was also important since it was a prerequisite for the X.Org 7.4
/ X Server 1.5.0
release. Out this weekend though is Mesa 7.2 Release Candidate 1.
Mesa 7.2 is intended to be the stabilized version of Mesa 7.1, which means it incorporates additional testing and bug-fixes. All major development work is now focused on what will become (in a few months time) the Mesa 7.3/7.4 series.
For those interested in the Mesa 7.2 Release Candidate 1 source-code, it can be downloaded from the Mesa3D Beta directory
