Mesa 7.4.1 Release Notes / 18 April 2009

Mesa 7.4.1 is a stable development release fixing bugs since the 7.4 release.

Mesa 7.4.1 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 Compiling/Installing page for prerequisites for DRI hardware acceleration.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a two-sided lighting bug in fixed-function-to-GPU code generation

  • Fixed some Darwin issues (Jeremy Huddleston)

  • Indexing the GLSL gl_EyePlane[] or gl_ObjectPlane[] arrays with a variable was broken, bug 20986

  • Fixed incorrect texture unit bias in TXB instruction

  • glTexParameter settings weren’t always propogated to drivers

  • Assorted vertex/fragment program bug fixes

  • Fixed point rendering in software rasterizer

  • Fixed potential deadlock in object hash functions

  • Fix a couple bugs surrounding front-buffer rendering with DRI2, but this is not quite complete.

  • Fixed glPopAttrib() bug when restoring user clip planes
