For those riding the stable Mesa release train, Mesa 13.0.2 is now available as the newest Mesa 13.0 point release.

As covered last week, the 50+ changes in this version include many fixes to VC4, i965, Radeon, and RADV drivers. There are also a number of Vulkan WSI (windowing system integration) fixes plus driver specific work, more smoke-testing, and memory leak fixes. The Intel Mesa driver also has received its share of support for Intel Geminilake hardware coming out in 2017.

More details on all the changes found in Mesa 13.0.2 can be found via mesa-announce. But if you'd consider yourself a Linux enthusiast or gamer, I'd recommend running Mesa 13.1-dev for all of the latest and great improvements to the open-source OpenGL and Vulkan drivers.
