Nouveau's Latest OpenGL 4.4 Extension Hits Mesa Git

Just a few days ago I was writing about OpenGL 4.4's Query Buffer Object Support Appears Nearly Ready For Nouveau and as of last night that code is now in Mesa Git.

The work includes the necessary wiring up of the query buffer object support within the Mesa Gallium3D state tracker, which will mean it's less work to do for the AMD crew when they get around to supporting it by RadeonSI. Nouveau's NVC0 driver for Fermi and newer is the first driver within the Mesa tree to support this extension needed by OpenGL 4.4.

Details on this ARB_query_buffer_object support can be found via this Git commit.

It's great to see how things are turning out, as recapped the other day, Core Mesa Is Now Just One Step Away From OpenGL 4.3 Compliance.
