<H1>Mesa 7.3 Release Notes / 22 January 2009</H1>
Mesa 7.3 is a new development release.
Users especially concerned with stability should stick with latest
stable release: version 7.2.
Mesa 7.3 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 <a href="install.html">Compiling/Installing page</a> for prerequisites
for DRI hardware acceleration.
