The belated Mesa 22.2.5 is now available as the last planned point release to the Mesa 22.2 series.

Now that Mesa 22.3 has reached stable, the Mesa 22.2 series is being discontinued. Dylan Baker released the late Mesa 22.2.5 with the last batch of bug fixes for those still relying on this series' graphics drivers.

Mesa 22.2.5 has a handful of fixes to the Panfrost Gallium3D driver, a few RADV Vulkan driver fixes, various Intel driver workarounds and fixes, support for building the R600g NIR code with Clang 6 for Android 9 compatibility, an Intel DriConf hack to set a fake vendor for Intel graphics to workaround faulty detection with Valve Source Engine games, and other random fixes.

The full list of Mesa 22.2.5 fixes can be found via the release announcement. Users are encouraged now to move to the Mesa 22.3 series where there is the introduction of Rusticl, new/improved hardware support, Zink is in better shape, and a ton of improvements throughout this collection of open-source OpenGL/Vulkan drivers.
