    Phoronix: The New Features Coming In Mesa 18.1: Intel Cache By Default, Many Vulkan Strides

    While Mesa 18.0 was just released a little over one month ago, Mesa 18.1 is already gearing up for release this month after going through two release candidates already. Here's a look at the new features of this second quarter 2018 Mesa 3D update...

    This is one of those projects that should be merged earlier.
    Hopefully with the advent of Snap/Flatpak Apps, that will free up resources for distros to focus on this kind of projects.

          The hardware has been a total failure. I wouldn't worry too much about GPU support when the power saving hangs.

            Doubt that snap and flatpak will have an impact on the issues of these things not making it into releases as the way most distros do releases stop that from happening. It would need a shift to a different release model, like rolling release, which shouldn't be impacted by how many end-user programs have to be built.
