    Phoronix: Mesa Development Activity Was Up By ~20% In 2019, Just Under 3 Million Lines Of Code

    Mesa3D as principally the collection of Linux OpenGL/Vulkan drivers is up to 2,996,270 lines of code (and documentation / associated scripts) within its Git tree! That should put it over the three million mark very soon while the Git activity was up by about 20% in 2019...

    With last year seeing the new Panfrost and Lima Gallium3D drivers merged...
    Michael,
    any news on what the name of the new (Mesa) Gallium 3D driver will be for Valhal - or will they just continue with Panfrost?
    Mali GPU (Mesa) Gallium3D Driver
    Utgard (Mali 400, Mali 450) Lima
    Midgard (Mali T600-T800) Panfrost
    Bitfrost (Mali G71-G76) Panfrost
    Valhal (Mali G77+ onwards) ??

      Now that we basically have OpenGL 4.6 compliance, most of Vulkan supported, a large chunk of Intel's new Gallium code implemented, and some pretty critical performance enhancements already established, I predict Mesa development is going to substantially decrease for 2020. But, that's not a bad thing: at least in regards to feature-completion and performance parity, Mesa has a finite amount of work to be done, so every single checkbox cleared off the "todo list" is something to be happy about.

        Mesa isn't following the unix philosophy.
