      Been a very long time since a new feature Beta for their driver, or a new series release.

        It isn't Mozilla to bump the number by 10 for each new line of code. They're gonna bump the number when a major feature comes, e.g. new GPU support or anything like that.

          Historically Nvidia gets a new feature release branch out every other month with the same cadence for Betas. It has been six months since a new beta release, and five months for a new stable feature branch. No on is talking about Firefox.

            Mozilla doesn't bump the version number in response to anything except time, though. Releases have been on a rolling schedule since 2011.

            In other words, if the repository had no changes for 3 months, a new version would still theoretically be released.

            That said, these days Mozilla is too littered with politics for me to defend, really.

              If they'll ever fix broken triple buffered vsync in GPU bound scenario?

                Or Wayland/XWayland. Or Freesync. Or HDR. Or Optimus. The list goes on.

                  I wished they'd simply allow distributing their firmware, allowing us to use the mesa drivers instead. Debugging against a proprietary driver is so tiresome
                  But I guess they know that in the moment they do, many foss devs will start closing any issues concerning the proprietary driver as wontfix and drop or not add extra hops for it any more.

                    On the best setting "Ultra Nightmare" it was using about 1.5Gb of video memory.
