The Mesa 3D Graphics Library

Mesa 7.2 Release Notes / 20 September 2008

Mesa 7.2 is a stable release fixing bugs found in 7.1, which was a new development release.

Mesa 7.2 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.

Note that this version of Mesa does not use the GEM memory manager. The master branch of git uses GEM. The prototype DRI2 code that was in 7.1 has also been removed.

DRM version 2.3.1 should be used with Mesa 7.2
