    Phoronix: Mesa 7.7 Released (Mesa 7.6.1 Too)

    Just as planned, Mesa 7.7 has been released in time to make it into everyones stockings this holiday. Intel's Ian Romanick has just pushed out the release of Mesa 7.7.0, which delivers many new features, along with Mesa 7.6.1, which delivers bug-fixes and greater stabilization work atop the Mesa 7.6 code-base. Mesa 7.7 delivers on VMware's virtual Gallium3D driver (the SVGA driver) that allows for Gallium3D to be used on their virtualization platform, several new OpenGL extensions, major improvements to the ATI R300 Gallium3D driver (named "r300g"), and a new Mesa texture/surface format infrastructure. The new VMware Gallium3D driver depends upon new DRM code that can be found in the Linux 2.6.33 kernel and later...

    It is a pretty safe bet that he does it, so we won't read the follow up replies in the thread.

    That way he can bring the news, if something interesting should come up.

    Not at all, it's more a matter of convenience. When I read something on a list I want to write about I just scroll down and click the link and for the mesa/dri lists it ends up at SourceForge. Though lately I've been trying to remember to go elsewhere for the list, but old habits die hard.

    What about Gmane.org? SF.net mail interface SUCKS and is slow as hell.

    The i965 driver (classic mesa, not i965g which is the gallium driver) is in pretty good shape in 7.7, at least on the G45.

    ETQW is finally running for example. It's obviously not very fast, but that's to be expected on this hardware.
