Coming just one week after the first release candidate
, the second release candidate for Mesa 7.8
is now available. This is in hopes of meeting the release schedule
and pushing out the final release on Friday.
My intention is that these will be the last release candidates. Unless there is some major show-stopping bug discovered, I plan to release 7.7.1 and 7.8 this *Friday*. I will ping people on IRC before making the release.
As said by Intel's Ian Romanick on the Mesa3D-announce list
. Mesa 7.8 includes the new OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0 state trackers for Gallium3D, new Gallium3D documentation, much improved EGL support, support for new OpenGL extensions, and many other improvements.
