For those relying on the Freedreno Gallium3D driver for open-source Qualcomm Adreno graphics support, there are more improvements in Git.

Rob Clark of Red Hat landed a number of improvements for Freedreno yesterday in the Mesa 10.7-devel Git code. The most notable addition is occulusion query support for the Adreno A4xx hardware.

Other Freedreno changes in Git are mostly bug-fixes. The Mesa 10.7 release is expected in September but may become known as Mesa 11.0 should OpenGL 4.0+ compliance be achieved.
