Mesa 7.5 Release Notes / 17 July 2009

Mesa 7.5 is a new development release. People who are concerned with stability and reliability should stick with the 7.4.x branch or wait for Mesa 7.5.1.

The main new feature of Mesa 7.5 is the Gallium3D infrastructure.

Mesa 7.5 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 Compiling/Installing page for prerequisites for DRI hardware acceleration.

Note that the Mesa project is no longer using odd/even version numbers to indicate development/stable releases. The so-called development releases have been fairly stable. If you're especially concerned with stability you should probably look for "point" releases such as 7.5.1 which will be a bug-fix release.
