AMD --
Marek Olšák on Sunday sent out his latest patch series with the last of the EGL 1.5 bits for those on Linux using this modern interface over GLX.

The latest patches sent out by this prolific open-source Mesa developer over the past few years add exposing sRGB visuals to the DRI Gallium3D state tracker, adding EGL_KHR_gl_colorspace support, adding support for the new features to the DRI2 render query extension, and other changes.

These needed EGL 1.5 patches for Mesa Gallium3D will hopefully land in Mesa 10.7 Git soon but for now can be found on the Mesa-dev list. EGL 1.5 was released by the Khronos Group in March of 2014.
