Besides the Wayland 1.6 release and other exciting Linux news today, Mesa 10.3 is another exciting open-source milestone achieved today.

Mesa 10.3 represents the past three months of Mesa 3D development and its release today is served by Mesa's new release manager, Emil Velikov. His announcement is quite simple.

If you're not already well aware of the Mesa 10.3 changes, quite simply you haven't been reading enough Phoronix! There's been dozens of articles about Mesa 10.3 development, its new features, and numerous articles already exploring the Mesa 10.3 open-source driver performance. In fact, we're already busy with Mesa 10.4. If you're not up to speed, read about the Mesa 10.3 feature overview and the many other linked articles. There's more OpenGL 4 extensions (though not yet OpenGL 4.0 compliance), new hardware enablement, and other new functionality.
