Mesa 21.2.3 Released As A Small Update To This Graphics Driver Stack

Written by Michael Larabel in Mesa on 29 September 2021 at 07:27 PM EDT. 4 Comments
Succeeding Mesa 21.2.2 from earlier this month that was a much delayed and in turn very large release, Mesa 21.2.3 is out today and it's on the quieter side.

Mesa 21.2.3 is out on time and thus a more manageable release compared to the big v21.2.2. There still though are a number of bug fixes, as usual mostly around the Intel and Radeon drivers for both OpenGL and Vulkan. Some of the specific items in Mesa 21.2.3 include:

- From the RadeonSI improvements for Mesa 21.3 covered yesterday, the depth texturing performance regression affecting older GCN 1.0/1.1 era graphics processors is back-ported for fixing that sizable performance regression. A RadeonSI NGG fast launch was also back-ported.

- A null pointer dereference fix for Panfrost.

- Various ACO and RADV fixes.
