+<H1>Mesa 7.8.1 Release Notes / April, 5, 2010</H1>
+Mesa 7.8.1 fixes a couple critical bugs in the recent Mesa 7.8 release. Even
+though this is a bug fix release, given its proximity to the 7.8 release, a
+new development release, it should also be considered new development release.
+People who are concerned with stability and reliability should stick
+with a previous release, such as 7.7.1, or wait for Mesa 7.8.2.
+Mesa 7.8.1 implements the OpenGL 2.1 API, but the version reported by
+glGetString(GL_VERSION) depends on the particular driver being used.
+Some drivers don't support all the features required in OpenGL 2.1.
+See the <a href="install.html">Compiling/Installing page</a> for prerequisites
+for DRI hardware acceleration.
