The release of Mesa 7.5.0, which is the first version of this open-source 3D stack to include support for Gallium3D, is running a bit behind schedule. Fortunately, however, Brian Paul has pushed out what is the fourth (and final) release candidate for the 7.5 series. There isn't anything too exciting in this release compared to Mesa 7.5 RC3 that arrived earlier this month, but just more fixes.

The release announcement for Mesa 7.5 RC4 just contains the MD5 check-sums for the new testing packages, so if you are interested in giving this release of Mesa a whirl, just stop by the Mesa3D Beta directory. Hopefully we will see the release of Mesa 7.5.0 in early July.
