The Blocker Bugs So Far For Mesa 13.0
Written by Michael Larabel in Mesa on 29 October 2016 at 08:10 AM EDT. 14 Comments
Mesa release manager Emil Velikov has setup a tracker bug to indicate all of the bugs that are blockers for the upcoming Mesa 13.0 release.

Mesa 13.0 was branched earlier this month with a plan for weekly release candidates until it's ready to make its debut. Mesa 13.0 is still anticipated for release in early-to-mid November. This is a big update with OpenGL 4.5 support for Intel, GL 4.4/4.5 extension completion for Nouveau NVC0/RadeonSI (but only officially showing OpenGL 4.3 compliance), RADV Radeon Vulkan driver, and many other changes.

Obviously with all of the work the past few months, Mesa 13.0 isn't without some regressions. Current nasty bugs/regressions being tracked are the build breaking if linking against non-standard prefixed LLVM, the build running into problems against particular versions of Flex, a few Intel-specific driver bugs, a GLSL test regressions, a swrast Piglit regression, and a Softpipe Piglit regression. It's possible other blocker bugs will get added too as testing continues and this tracker bug was just made on Friday.
