    Phoronix: Mesa 19.0 Released With Many Improvements To The Open-Source Vulkan/OpenGL Drivers

    Mesa 19.0 has finally been released! It's more than two weeks late, but it should be worth the wait given all the improvements in this quarterly feature update to this open-source graphics driver stack...

    Have there been any benchmarks showing the impact of the Zen improvements? I'd be curious to see how much of a different that makes.

      Padoka Stable hasn't even updated to 18.3.4 yet, any idea if there is a more active PPA for Debian-based distributions to get the latest stable mesa?

        When you read an software update news and see no single update concerning your hardware... then it is time for upgrading it haha

            Paulo Dias works on the PPAs in his spare time. So you can be thankful that he makes this effort at all.

            The stable PPA hasn't been updated in 6 weeks. That's true:
            -> https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-...e/ubuntu/pkppa

            The Unstable PPA was last updated just 5 days ago:
            -> https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-...ve/ubuntu/mesa

            Paulo Dias is still active. I wait until he has found time to update his stable PPA.

            BTW - maybe it helps to donate a few dollars to the good Paulo ... he deserves it all times. That's why I recently donated something. As you can see on the linked PPA pages you can transfer some money here:
            -> https://www.paypal.me/padoka

              Why would I donate for a PPA that I don't use, that doesn't get updated?

                The Debian experimental repository has mesa 19 packages. You can use that repository with Debian testing and sid. Padoka ppa Mesa git is the best, Mesa and LLVM are in sync.

                  You guys need to get up to speed with AUR packages and use Antergos or something. 99% of this is automatable, and it's not even difficult if you put in a few hours making a pkgbuild. PPA's are complete trash, at best, unless it's a terrible PC you don't compile code on. But even then, just run the stable versions and wait.

                    Ppas offer binary packages that are installed in a minute, full mesa stack takes a very long time to compile and can be difficult to produce 32-bit libraries especially. Steam games support only SteamOS and Ubuntu. With ppa-purge it is easy to switch between repositories. Oibaf ppa udpates to Padoka ppa and purging Padoka ppa returns to Oibaf ppa. Purging Oibaf ppa returns original distro packages.

                    You destroy your solid state drive with antergos or something when constantly compiling mesa and other stuff.
