    Phoronix: Mesa 18.0 Has Been Off The Tracks For More Than One Month

    Mesa 18.0 had been due for release around mid-February, but that didn't happen and there hasn't even been a release candidate in more than one month...

    http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...-Off-Te-Tracks
    There have been blocking bugs during that time. Vulkan 1.1 conformance was achieved during that month.

    Nobody wants a release candidate (or a release) with regressions.

    Do you need reassuring version bumps on the same code with minor changes to sleep well at night?

    Because that's the only difference here, proprietary can't "miss" a release, but this just means they publish the same stuff with a different version.

    When it comes to closed drivers, if there's no significant progress by the next release, they just re-release the same thing with a higher version number. Remember fglrx? It was "updated" every month, but nothing ever changed except for the occasional (and extremely late) kernel/xorg compatibility upgrades. Critical bugs lived on for years, and many never got fixed before the driver was discontinued.

    By mess here it is meant as how we are kings in "the exception rather than the rule" category, we are sort of "kings who like to troll blobs", etc... on the other hand meanwhile when we need to release something "to rule them all" seriosly, that usualy just fail

    This way long time ago i said how The Year of Linux Desktop will be when Del Boy become millionare
