    Default Mesa Slowly Gets Better OpenGL 3 Coverage

    Phoronix: Mesa Slowly Gets Better OpenGL 3 Coverage

    While OpenGL 3.0 was announced in August of 2007, nearly three years later its coverage in the open-source Mesa stack is lacking even while the 3.1/3.2/3.3 revisions have been introduced and OpenGL 4.0 was already introduced this year. Slowly but surely though, the open-source developers are making progress in implementing OpenGL 3.x support for Mesa...

    While it is indeed a long-awaited feature I think you have no basis for the emergence of a gallium state tracker. Unfortunately I haven't seen any plans even proposed not to mention started yet.

    Please don't misunderstand me, because I really cheer for this to happen, but at this point your statement is just a vague prophecy...

    The state tracker already exists, does it not? I have OpenGL 1.5 support with Nouveau, and they only provide a Gallium3D driver.

    First things first - ATI needs to finish OpenGL 2.1 / GLSL 1.2 for r600 and optimize KMS/DRI2 (or do we have to wait for r600g?)

    Not really, these things usually happens in parallel.
