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.

We have already talked about Mesa 7.9 extensively over the past few months in these Mesa 7.9 postings.

The release announcement (essentially the source download link) for Mesa 7.9 can be found on mesa-announce.
