Mesa 11.2 Still Isn't Ready

Mesa 11.2 was supposed to be released in early March but that milestone has yet to be reached.

There are many new features to Mesa 11.2 for those wishing to use stable versions of Mesa over routine Git snapshots. Unfortunately, after the 11.2-RC3 release three weeks ago, there's been nothing new at all.

The Mesa 11.2 branch has been completely silent since three weeks ago when 11.2.0-rc3 was tagged. There also hasn't been any communication on mesa-dev/mesa-announce about this multi-week delay to the 11.2 cycle. Mesa 11.2 should have been released one week past the RC3 release unless an additional RC was warranted.

More details as soon as I hear anything new about the 11.2 release state.
