<h1>Mesa 7.8 Release Notes / March 28, 2010</h1>
Mesa 7.8 is a new development release.
People who are concerned with stability and reliability should stick
with a previous release or wait for Mesa 7.8.1.
Mesa 7.8 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.
