Phoronix: VP8 Gallium3D Support In Mesa Is Being Worked On

The project actually is part of GSoC. marcheu and dberkholz pulled some strings and got it fixed.

I agree wholeheartedly. I can really care less about who develops this, but I really am looking forward to utilizing it. Any word yet as to the progress of this? Anyone know when it will be released? Thanks.
