For those not living in the wonderful land of Git for Mesa, the second release candidate of the forthcoming Mesa 7.11
release is now available.
Git master of Mesa is already on to Mesa 7.12-devel, where there is already a number of exciting highlights: Pipe-video
, soon the GLSL-To-TGSI translator
, floating-point depth buffers
, and much more.
For those looking just to use Mesa 7.11, over the 7.10 release there is: new hardware support (AMD Llano, Intel Ivy Bridge, etc), many Gallium3D driver improvements (R600g is now built by default too), GLSL compiler improvements, bug-fixes, floating-point textures (not built by default due to patents), and many other changes that have come over the past six months.
This Mesa 7.11 RC2 is coming a bit late, but it can be downloaded from the mailing list announcement
. The final release of Mesa 7.11 is expected next week.
