Mesa 5.0 release notes
November 13, 2002
PLEASE READ!!!!
Introduction
------------
Mesa uses an even/odd version number scheme like the Linux kernel.
Even-numbered versions (such as 5.0) designate stable releases.
Odd-numbered versions (such as 4.1) designate new developmental releases.
Mesa 5.0 is basically just a stabilization of Mesa 4.1. To see a list of
bug fixes, etc. see the VERSIONS file.
New Features in Mesa 5.0
------------------------
Mesa 5.0 supports OpenGL 1.4. Note Mesa's versioning convention:
OpenGL Version Mesa Version
------------------------------
1.0 1.x
1.1 2.x
1.2 3.x
1.3 4.x
1.4 5.x
OpenGL 1.4 (and Mesa 5.0) incorporates the following OpenGL extensions as
standard features:
GL_ARB_depth_texture
GL_ARB_shadow
GL_ARB_texture_env_crossbar
GL_ARB_texture_mirror_repeat
GL_ARB_window_pos
GL_EXT_blend_color
GL_EXT_blend_func_separate
GL_EXT_blend_logic_op
GL_EXT_blend_minmax
GL_EXT_blend_subtract
GL_EXT_fog_coord
GL_EXT_multi_draw_arrays
GL_EXT_point_parameters
GL_EXT_secondary_color
GL_EXT_stencil_wrap
GL_SGIS_generate_mipmap
Device Driver Status
--------------------
A number of Mesa's software drivers haven't been actively maintained for
some time. We rely on volunteers to maintain many of these drivers.
Here's the current status of all included drivers:
Driver Status
---------------------- ---------------------
XMesa (Xlib) implements OpenGL 1.4
OSMesa (off-screen) implements OpenGL 1.4
FX (3dfx Voodoo1/2) implements OpenGL 1.3
SVGA implements OpenGL 1.3
Wind River UGL implements OpenGL 1.3
Windows/Win32 implements OpenGL 1.4
DOS/DJGPP implements OpenGL 1.3
GGI implements OpenGL 1.3
DOS implements OpenGL 1.4
BeOS needs updating (underway)
Allegro needs updating
D3D needs updating
Note: supporting OpenGL 1.4 (vs. 1.3 or 1.2) usually only requires that the
driver call the _mesa_enable_1_4_extensions() function.
