<h1>Mesa 10.2 Release Notes / June 6, 2014</h1>

<p>
Mesa 10.2 is a new development release.
People who are concerned with stability and reliability should stick
with a previous release or wait for Mesa 10.2.1.
</p>
<p>
Mesa 10.2 implements the OpenGL 3.3 API, but the version reported by
glGetString(GL_VERSION) or glGetIntegerv(GL_MAJOR_VERSION) /
glGetIntegerv(GL_MINOR_VERSION) depends on the particular driver being used.
Some drivers don't support all the features required in OpenGL 3.3.  OpenGL
3.3 is <strong>only</strong> available if requested at context creation
because compatibility contexts are not supported.

<li>Renamed <i>--with-llvm-shared-libs</i> to <i>--enable-llvm-shared-libs</i>
73 74 75 76
<p>
The option is used to control how mesa is linked against LLVM, and now
defaults to enabled (shared linking).

with any gallium driver.

<p>
Previously the library was linked statically against vmware's virtual gpu
driver(svga), whereas now it loads a shared pipe_*.so driver. Provide the
following options during configure, if you would like support for svga driver
<i>--enable-xa --with-gallium-drivers=svga</i>
</p>

<p>
Note: The files are installed in $(libdir)/gallium-pipe/ and the interface
between them and libxatracker.so is <strong>not</strong> stable.
