<p>
Primary Mesa download site:
<a href="ftp://ftp.freedesktop.org/pub/mesa/"
target="_parent">freedesktop.org</a> (FTP)
</p>
<p>
When a new release is coming, release candidates (betas) may be found
<a href="ftp://ftp.freedesktop.org/pub/mesa/beta/" target="_parent">here</a>.
</p>
<p>
The Mesa package is named MesaLib-x.y.z.{tar.bz2, tar.gz, zip} where x.y.z
is the version. There are three types of compressed archives.
</p>
<p>
In the past, there was also MesaGLUT-x.y.z.{tar.bz2, tar.gz, zip} packages which
contained Mark Kilgard's GLUT library.
Most Linux distributions include an implementation of GLUT (such as freeglut).
</p>
<p>
In the past, the Mesa demos collection was distributed as
MesaDemos-x.y.z.{tar.bz2, tar.gz, zip}.
Now, the
<a href="ftp://ftp.freedesktop.org/pub/mesa/demos/" target="_parent">
Mesa demos</a> are distributed separately.
