<H1>Mesa 7.9 Release Notes / October 4, 2010</H1>
Mesa 7.9 is a new development release.
People who are concerned with stability and reliability should stick
with a previous release or wait for Mesa 7.9.1.
Mesa 7.9 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.

<h2>New features</h2>
<li>New, improved GLSL compiler written by Intel.
See the <a href="shading.html"> Shading Language</a> page for
more information.
<li>New, very experimental Gallium driver for R600-R700 Radeons.
<li>Support for AMD Evergreen-based Radeons (HD 5xxx)
<li>GL_EXT_timer_query extension (i965 driver and softpipe only)
<li>GL_EXT_framebuffer_multisample extension (intel drivers, MAX_SAMPLES = 1)
<li>GL_ARB_texture_swizzle extension (alias of GL_EXT_texture_swizzle)
<li>GL_ARB_draw_elements_base_vertex, GL_ARB_fragment_program_shadow,
GL_ARB_window_pos, GL_EXT_gpu_program_parameters,
GL_ATI_texture_env_combine3, GL_MESA_pack_invert, and GL_OES_EGL_image
extensions in Gallium drivers
<li>GL_ARB_depth_clamp and GL_NV_depth_clamp extensions (in nv50 and r600
Gallium drivers)
<li>GL_ARB_half_float_vertex extension (in nvfx, r300, r600, softpipe,
and llvmpipe Gallium drivers)
<li>GL_EXT_draw_buffers2 (in nv50, r600, softpipe, and llvmpipe Gallium
<li>GL_EXT_texture_swizzle (in nvfx, r300, r600, softpipe, and llvmpipe
Gallium drivers)
<li>GL_ATI_texture_mirror_once (in nvfx, nv50, r300, r600, softpipe, and
llvmpipe Gallium drivers)
<li>GL_NV_conditional_render (in r300 Gallium driver)
<li>Initial "signs of life" support for Sandybridge hardware in i965 DRI
<h2>Bug fixes</h2>
<p>This list is likely incomplete.</p>
<li>Massive improvements to the Gallium driver for R300-R500 Radeons; this
driver is now considered stable for use as a DRI (OpenGL) driver.
