    Default Mesa 7.4 Release Candidate 1 Released

    Phoronix: Mesa 7.4 Release Candidate 1 Released

    Mesa 7.3 was released back in January and was branched from the master Git tree so that it can be stabilized further and go on to form Mesa 7.4. Well, nearly three months later, Mesa 7.4 is getting close to being released...

    I couldn't wait any longer. That's why I sold my 4850 and got myself a 9800GT.

    Everything now works perfectly:

    Tear-free Compiz
    Tear-free x-video + VDPAU
    Flicker-free tear-free 3D windowed applications

    It was an overall tear-free experience and I am overall a tear-free person.

    So while they promise the open stack will be done tomorrow, I will be back to the open source campaign tomorrow, too. sigh.

    The latter works (NVidia's one only) while the former is still broken as crap.
