Mesa 13 Release Notes 


Mesa 13.0.x implements the OpenGL 4.4 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 4.4. OpenGL 4.4 is only available if requested at context creation because compatibility contexts are not supported.

The current release added basic Intel Gemini Lake processor support, fixes crashes in GLX, EGL and Wayland-EGL, resolves a number of memory leaks in the video decoding drivers, makes the Intel Vulkan driver
more robust by exporting only the required symbols (previously we would get symbol collisions leading to strange behaviour or even crashes).

Not to mention the steady amount of driver fixes in i965, nouveau, radeonsi, freedreno and vc4.
