Mesa 17.1.9 is now available for those sticking to the 17.1 stable releases and aren't yet comfortable moving to the just-released Mesa 17.2.

Mesa 17.1.9 fixes a core Mesa problem, a few patches to Gallium3D state trackers, GLSL and SPIR-V compiler fixes, some ANV and RADV minor fixes to these Vulkan drivers, and a variety of other smaller work. In total are just about two dozen fixes in this latest point release.

The list of Mesa 17.1.9 changes can be found via Mesa-dev.

Meanwhile, Mesa 17.2.1 should be released in the next week or two to further stabilize the 17.2 code-base (including RADV Vega support back-ported) and at that point more users should be comfortable shipping to this newer quarterly release series. For the adventurous, Mesa 17.3-dev Git has plenty of exciting changes going in almost daily.
