DRI2 Driver For Mesa EGL In The Works
Kristian Høgsberg, the mastermind behind DRI2 and the one behind the Wayland Display Server, has a new announcement and that's a DRI2 driver for the new Mesa EGL implementation. Kristian's work interfaces EGL with DRI2 and is described as a "nice, self-contained implementation." Kristian has aspirations to add support for EGL with a DRI2 driver on the KMS frame-buffer, which could be used in the Wayland world.
Kristian previously wrote the Eagle EGL stack as part of his work on Wayland, but those Eagle-specific bits have been dropped after Gallium3D received a new EGL state tracker and Kristian has merged some Eagle bits with Mesa.
Kristian's announcement concerning this DRI2 driver for EGL can be read on mesa3d-dev. The driver has not been merged to the mainline Mesa code-base yet, but can currently be found in the Høgsberg Mesa repository.
