Just shy of a week since tagging Mesa 7.3 RC2, Brian Paul has announced Mesa 7.3 Release Candidate 3. This third release candidate is made up of a few GLSL changes and some Intel-specific work. Support for RGBA4444 and RGBA5551 texture formats have also been added.

It's expected that this will be the final release candidate before officially announcing Mesa 7.3. This release to the de facto standard open-source OpenGL stack introduces DRI2, improved GLSL 1.20 support, and other features. The latest development release of Mesa can be downloaded here or obtained via Git.
