Emil Velikov announced the release of Mesa 10.6.3 this morning, though of course most Phoronix readers are eaglerly awaiting the release of Mesa 10.7/11.0 with initial OpenGL 4 support.

The Mesa 10.6.3 point release has just over a dozen bug-fixes, including fixings for the Nouveau Gallium3D NV50/NVC0 code, some patches for the video layer module in Gallium3D affecting VDPAU/VAAPI/OMX and a XA memory leak fix.

More details on Mesa 10.6.3 via the official release announcement. It's a sufficient release while waiting for the very exciting next Mesa release, for those not habitual Git upgraders. Daily Mesa + kernel benchmarks continue to be done automatically over at
