As some Freedreno driver news this weekend besides Qualcomm publishing some register documentation is word that OpenGL ES 3.0 is now working for the Freedreno Gallium3D driver on Adreno A3xx/4xx hardware.

OpenGL ES 3.0 is now in place for this Adreno hardware with the exception of MSAA anti-aliasing. This milestone was reached with the Freedreno driver getting transform feedback support, MRT+z32s8 support, and TBO support. This is also enough to run the OpenGL 3.1 SuperTuxKart racer game (when forcing the MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE and MESA_GLSL_VERSION_OVERRIDE environment variables).

More details on the latest Freedreno Gallium3D work that will be found in Mesa 11.0 can be found via Rob Clark's blog, the lead developer of Freedreno.
