    Default Mesa Release Shake-Up: Mesa 8.1 Is Now Mesa 9.0

    Phoronix: Mesa Release Shake-Up: Mesa 8.1 Is Now Mesa 9.0

    Well, there isn't a major Mesa release happening this month as was originally planned. There also isn't going to be a Mesa 8.1 release. Instead, Mesa 9.0 will be released in September...

    Now it looks like we're getting there a release early, albeit they still need to catch-up on OpenGL 3.2/3.3 and OpenGL 4.0/4.1/4.2/4.3 and GL ES 3.0 before being caught up with the leading proprietary drivers and upstream Khronos specifications.
    PUUUUHLEEEEESEEEE stop stating this EVERY TIME YOU POST AN ARTICLE ON OpenGL version support. It's getting really tiring.

    So what was wrong with calling the release that enables OpenGL 3.1 Mesa 8.1? I expected Mesa 9.0 would be the one with OpenGL 4.0 and Mesa 10.0 the one with OpenGL 5.0. Are they trying to compete with DirectX on who has the biggest version number?

    Numbers don't mean much anyway. They could have named it Mesa 0xB16B00B5.

    Features is where its at.

    Microsoft might have a copyright for that number... Anyway, for mesa the numbers DO mean something important as the major only increments when a new OpenGL version is implemented.

    As long as it is out in time to be included in Fedora 18, this is great news.
