    Default Mesa 7.9 Has Now Been Released

    Phoronix: Mesa 7.9 Has Now Been Released

    Just as planned, Mesa 7.9 has now been released! This 7.9 release of this open-source graphics library is huge with a plethora of Gallium3D improvements (to the drivers, state trackers, etc), core Mesa improvements (including new OpenGL extensions), a new GLSL compiler, and much more...

    Mesa 7.9 aka the r300g/default release.

    Let's hope Mesa 7.10 becomes the r600g equivalent.

    Let us hope they will release 7.10 sooner than 7.9 . I hate having to use git code for my drivers...

    They need to have a proper release policy. At least a new version every 3 months. It is not that hard...

    Does it mean Gallium is default for r300 with mesa 7.9?

    It is. Technically, if you don't specify the driver to install it builds and installs both of them. The r300g driver is installed second, though, which overwrites the classic driver so it's the one that sticks.

    7.9 was released on time, so they do have a proper release policy, no?

    Do you have a problem understanding simple statements? My problem is with the time it took from 7.8 to 7.9 . 6 fscking months for God's sake!

    They need to release more often. Even if it means releasing versions with fewer changes, that is ok. But having to wait for 6 months for an updated 3d driver is ridiculus.
