Mesa 11.0.5 was released this morning as the newest stable version of this critical open-source user-space 3D graphics library.

Mesa 11.0.5 adds in the Skylake GT4 PCI IDs for presumably what will be named the "Iris Pro" graphics processors on future SKL CPUs, takes care of some LLVM 3.7 issues along with some NIR fixes, and has a few i965/Nouveau/Radeon-specific fixes.

Besides having the new Intel Skylake GT4 PCI IDs, Mesa 11.0.5 also adds the PCI IDs on the AMD side for the open-source AMD Stoney APU support. On the kernel side, Stoney support is going into Linux 4.4. AMD Stoney Ridge is expected in 2016.

More details on the changes today in Mesa 11.0.5 can be found via the release announcement. Meanwhile, all major feature development continues to be focused on what's currently being called Mesa 11.1 with plans to release it in December or January.
