MESA --
The second release candidate to Mesa 11.0 is now available for testing.

Mesa 11.0 RC2 brings just about two dozen bug fixes that have accumulated over the past week. There's fixes for core Mesa, NV50/NVC0 Nouveau fixes, some i965 Intel work, and also R600g and RadeonSI fun. There's also basic clip plane support added to Freedreno for A3xx hardware.

One change of interest to Phoronix readers will be the revert for the recent AMD RadeonSI performance regression. Details noted within Mesa Tests With The Reverted RadeonSI Performance.

More details on Mesa 11.0 Release Candidate 2 can be found via Emil Velikov's release announcement. Mesa 11.0 is expected to be officially released around 11 September.
