Emil Velikov of Collabora announced Mesa 17.2.3 as the latest collection of fixes and other minor work on these open-source OpenGL/Vulkan drivers as well as state trackers for video acceleration, OpenCL, and more.

Mesa 17.2.3 has multiple "small" fixes to the Intel ANV and Radeon RADV Vulkan drivers, EGL fixes, OpenSWR crash fixes, various small updates to Gallium3D drivers, interlaced video handling improvements for the VA/VDPAU state trackers, and SCons 3.0 build system support.

Meanwhile, Mesa 17.3 is expected to be branched in the next few days with an aim to get this next stable driver series out by the middle of November.
