    Phoronix: Mesa 18.1-RC2 & Mesa 18.0.2 Released

    Mesa 18.0.2 is now the latest stable release for Mesa3D while those wishing to ride the bleeding-edge version for these OpenGL/Vulkan drivers can try Mesa 18.1-RC2...

    Hurry up. Looking forward to a new AMDGPU Pro OpenCL stack update to work within. I have zero confidence the ROCm stuff will work with Blender for quite some time. Hopefully, they'll release for Linux 4.17. Anything after Linux 4.15.1 from Debian and the Pro OpenCL stack isn't recognized.

      Your tone could use some improving, you sound entitled. I don't think they owe you or I anything for bleeding edge support.

      On Ubuntu 18.04, I'm running kernel 4.13.0-33 and latest ROCm no problem on my RX480. So what's the rush exactly to move to the 4.15 kernel that is so necessary in your daily workflow?

        Entitled? Sure. I invested and own 2,650 AMD shares. So, yes, I want a working driver. This is Silicon Valley. I'm used to quality from working at NeXT and Apple. I want this shit to be mature, not the continued, ``it's getting there'' for the past 18 months.

          On Linux these shares worth probably 20% out of 0.33% per steam survey, which is much less than second hand card

          Diminsh that for Debian only, further diminish it for Testing/Sid... see that likely worth very near zero

          AMD had not relesed any driver this month even for Windows, probably waiting for Spring update Windows 10 breakages

          People should buy shares for Linux bugs, that likely will always be worthy

            Btw: vaExportSurfaceHandle() was implemented with 18.0.1 (wasn't mentioned in its news article), allowing VAAPI-EGL with Radeons.
            This is very important, as it allows VAAPI on Wayland and newer formats like HEVC 10 bit. Already works in mpv-git.
