Igalia's Work On The Intel Mesa Driver The Past Year
Written by Michael Larabel in Mesa on 29 July 2016 at 08:06 AM EDT. Add A Comment
Consulting firm Igalia who was contracted by Intel to help work on their open-source Mesa driver has written a blog post about some of the progress they've made the past year.

Among the Mesa tasks worked on over the past year by Igalia developers have been a NIR to VEC4 pass, optimizing the NIR-VEC4 pass, adding support for ARB_internalformat_query2, adding ARB_vertex_attrib_64bit, and various bug fixes.

Though from how this blog post is worded, it's not clear if all of the Igalia work will continue on the Intel Mesa driver or whether some of the developers are being reassigned to other work, given the timing of this recap blog post.
