Mesa 6.4 Release Notes
October 24, 2005
Mesa uses an even/odd version number scheme like the Linux kernel.
Odd numbered versions (such as 6.3) designate new developmental releases.
Even numbered versions (such as 6.4) designate stable releases.
6.4 is a bug-fix release. See the VERSIONS file for details.
GLUT tarball
Starting with 6.4, the GLUT library sources are distributed in a separate
tarball. This was done at the request of Linux distro vendors who prefer
to use freeglut.
Driver Status
---------------------- ----------------------
DRI drivers varies with the driver
XMesa (Xlib) implements OpenGL 1.5
OSMesa (off-screen) implements OpenGL 1.5
Windows/Win32 implements OpenGL 1.5
Glide (3dfx Voodoo1/2) requires updates
SVGA requires updates
DJGPP requires updates
GGI requires updates
BeOS requires updates
Allegro requires updates
D3D requires updates
The drivers which require updates mostly need to be updated to work
with the new gl_renderbuffer / gl_framebuffer infrastructure introduced
in Mesa 6.3.
