As a follow up to the Mesa 7.5 release that occurred back in mid-July, Brian Paul has now announced the release of Mesa 7.5.1. This point release brings a number of bug fixes and minor improvements, while a plethora of new work over the past few months has been going into what shall become Mesa 7.6.

Among the fixes making up Mesa 7.5.1 is eliminating the swap-buffers jerkiness with the Intel driver in Doom 3 and other games, minor GLX memory leaks, a few Gallium3D bug-fixes, and miscellaneous OpenGL bug fixes. The Mesa 7.5.1 release notes are available at Mesa3D.org while the source releases are now being made off of FreeDesktop.org.

In related news, there has been a call for branching of Mesa 7.6 in the near future (as soon as tomorrow), which will put this next major release of the Mesa 3D stack one step closer.
