    Phoronix: Mesa's VirGL Now Has OpenGL 4.2 Support To Offer Guest VMs

    In the mad rush to land last minute features into Mesa 18.2 prior to its code branching and release candidate phase beginning, David Airlie has settled OpenGL 4.2 support for the VirGL stack...

    I think we can land GL4.3 and GLES3.2 support before the merge.

        Now, waiting for Debian's qemu finally arrive with virgl enabled. Not sure why it had to take forever, but next update should already have it.

            This is some excellent progress. I'd be curious to see some benchmarks of modern games with this.

                We truly need spice tcp support, otherwise most of those awesome features will stay unused

                  I would not be surprised if the highest use case for these features are to run headless bots. Personally I would use these features for remote gaming and would use my own remote-desktop implementation (not VNC nor Spice).

                    What's the current status right now? Is it still limited to local display?
