Mesa 22.3 had been expected to release this week but instead Mesa 22.3-rc4 was issued and in turn the v22.3 introduction is now expected for next week.

Due to still having some graphics driver blocker bugs around, Mesa 22.3-rc4 was issued with another week's worth of fixes. Mesa 22.3-rc4 brings the usual large number of fixes around the Radeon RADV driver, a few items for the smaller drivers like Etnaviv and V3D, numerous Intel driver fixes, and other random fixes throughout the large code-base for open-source OpenGL and Vulkan dirvers.

In general though there is a lot to be excited about with Mesa 22.3 as this quarter's open-source GPU user-space driver stack feature release. I'll have a lengthier feature write-up in the days ahead.

The full list of Mesa 22.3-rc4 fixes can be found via Wednesday's release announcement.

A lot of new Linux GPU benchmarks are currently ongoing at Phoronix in preparation for the next Mesa release, next month's AMD Radeon RX 7900 series availability, some new Linux gaming benchmarks now in good shape, and a fresh look at the Intel Arc Graphics Linux performance. Stay tuned!
