The latest Mesa 13.0 weekly release candidate is now available for testing.

Mesa 13.0 RC2 was published this morning by Collabora's Emil Velikov. Mesa 13.0-RC2 has several fixes to RADV (Radeon Vulkan driver), ANV (the Intel Vulkan driver), various Wayland code, some GLSL-to-TGSI Gallium3D fixes, some NV50/NVC0 Nouveau fixes, and also one RadeonSI fix.

The complete list of Mesa 13.0 RC2 fixes can be found via the mailing list announcement. Weekly release candidates of Mesa 13 are expected until the official 13.0 release in early-to-mid November.

Mesa 13.0 has a ton of new functionality including the RADV Radeon Vulkan driver, OpenGL 4.5 for Intel Broadwell and newer, unofficial OpenGL 4.4~4.5 for RadeonSI/NVC0, and more. But as great as it is, there are some features you won't see in Mesa 13.0.
