For something a bit more current, see the trello page:

Here is a list of things needed, in no particular order.


  • misc:
  • MSAA
  • tiled textures
  • Emulate unsupported texture wrap modes in shader - a3xx does not seem to support mirror-clamp, mirror-clamp-to-border, and mirror-clamp-to-edge seems to only work for power-of-two textures.
    • emulation for GL_CLAMP done, for others we have stopped advertising the extensions for now
  • compiler:
  • add relative addressing support to new-compiler (and remove legacy compiler)
  • integer support
  • loops / switch / subroutines
  • note gallium will unroll loops with constant # of iterations, and inline functions, if the gallium driver does not support.. sufficient for simple shaders and gles2.
  • derivative support (TGSI_OPCODE_DDX, TGSI_OPCODE_DDY)
  • gl2 support:
  • occlusion query
  • additionally sRGB texture support will bring us up to gl2.1
  • gles3
  • GLSL version level 130 (integer support, loops, and ??)
  • note non-unrollable loops (which are less common) still missing, but we advertise glsl 130 all the same
  • packed float (PIPE_FORMAT_R11G11B10_FLOAT)
  • EXT_texture_shared_exponent (PIPE_FORMAT_R9G9B9E5_FLOAT)
  • transform feedback
  • sRGB framebuffer support
  • UBO's
  • MRT
  • gl3 support:
  • GLSL version level 130 (integer support and ??)
  • texture compression (PIPE_FORMAT_RGTC{1,2}_{U,S}NORM)
  • packed float (PIPE_FORMAT_R11G11B10_FLOAT)
  • EXT_texture_shared_exponent (PIPE_FORMAT_R9G9B9E5_FLOAT)
  • transform feedback
  • MSAA >= 4
  • 32b float depth (PIPE_FORMAT_Z32_FLOAT and PIPE_FORMAT_Z32_FLOAT_S8X24_UINT)
  • NV_conditional_render (PIPE_CAP_CONDITIONAL_RENDER)
  • gl3.1 support:
  • GLSL version level 140 (needs ??)
  • UBO's
  • ARB_draw_instanced (PIPE_CAP_TGSI_INSTANCEID)
  • ARB_texture_buffer_object (PIPE_CAP_TEXTURE_BUFFER_OBJECTS)
  • EXT_texture_snorm


  • add support for EGL_ARM_pixmap_multisample_discard and/or GL_EXT_multisampled_render_to_texture.. either or both of these would be a big win for MSAA on tiler gpu's. Also would be possibly worthwhile to implement a GL/GLX version of the same extensions. Extension needs to be implemented in mesa and multisample-discard attribute passed through to gallium driver.

drm/msm (kernel):

  • mdp4 (apq8060, apq8064, etc):

  • plane scaling
  • mdp5 (apq8074, etc):
  • DSI support
  • displayport support
  • YUV plane (overlay)
  • plane scaling
  • hw cursor
