Mesa 11.2.0 Has Been Officially Released

Written by Michael Larabel in Mesa on 4 April 2016 at 08:22 AM EDT. 13 Comments
Mesa 11.2 is arriving a month late, but it's now available this morning as the latest ~3 month update for the project. Mesa 11.2 does have many improvements, but it doesn't advance the OpenCL core support level for any of the prominent hardware drivers.

You should already be familiar with what's new to Mesa 11.2 if you do your daily dose of Phoronix reading as we've been talking about it for months. But if you haven't, you can see the Mesa 11.2 Features For When It's Released Very Soon article.

Mesa 11.2 can be downloaded from this Git branch. However, if you're a Linux gamer or Phoronix-reading Linux enthusiast, chances are you'll be more interested in Mesa Git with all of the features building up for Mesa 11.3 this summer and may very well end up being renamed to Mesa 12.0 should the new OpenGL support levels be reached.
