    Default Mesa 7.6 Planned For Release Next Week

    Phoronix: Mesa 7.6 Planned For Release Next Week

    Intel's Ian Romanick has publicly outlined his plans to have the release of Mesa 7.6 next week. A release on Monday is being planned, which would be timed with the start of the X Developers' Conference taking place in Portland and would also get this updated Linux graphics stack out the door for those distribution vendors wanting to ship a released version of this code in their new distributions. At the same time, Ian is hoping to deliver a Mesa 7.5.2 stable release for those users wanting more mature, stable code...

    Pissing off graphics driver developers doesn't seem like the smart thing to do. Your games might suddenly start to show beastiality porn at the most awkward of times...

    To be perfectly honest, I'm being a bit selfish. I want my QA to
    start their testing with the code that will hopefully be the release.
    Since they are in China, they have a big holiday starting October 1st.
    That gives them a hard limit on when they can start (and finish)
    testing. I was pretty sure that if I reminded people that we were
    intending to release at XDC there would be a pile of commits over the
    weekend.

    Absolutely! In the next releases (both 7.6.1 and 7.7), I'm hoping we'll
    have some discussion about when the release candidates and freezes will
    happen. I had intended to have those discussions for this release.
    However, my wife broke her leg at the start of August, and in the
    process of taking care of her, the weeks just flew by. My brain still
    thinks it's August, not the last week of September.

    No, you and Keith are 100% correct. This is rubbish, and it's my fault
    for falling asleep at the wheel. That's also why the subject is "proposed".
    He admit that mad Max was right in his emo reaction, so i can now come back into dungeon and again watch my lovely bitches from git.
