    Can't wait when Mesa 17.0.2 is available in Debian Testing. Probably in 6 months

        Debian maintainer for Mesa is one of its developers. Last few years stable Mesa version getting uploaded to Debian Sid right after release.

          Santiago, really?
          I think normally .0.0 goes to experimental and can take a good month to get to sid.
          The .0.1 release goes quickly to sid then testing.

          I've moved to Padoka on debian sid about 6 months ago though so I may be out of date with what they are doing now sorry.
          Just remember to set the pref higher so it does use Padoka LLVM/etc over sid.
          I have experimental with low pref just in case, but haven't seen anything get pulled from there in a while.

          Code:
          $ glxinfo | grep core
              Preferred profile: core (0x1)
              Max core profile version: 4.5
          OpenGL core profile version string: 4.5 (Core Profile) Mesa 17.0.0-devel - padoka PPA
          OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 4.50
