Mesa 7.8 Release Notes / March 28, 2010¶
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 Compiling/Installing page for prerequisites for DRI hardware acceleration.

GL_NV_conditional_render extension (swrast driver only)
GL_EXT_draw_buffers2 extension (swrast and i965 driver only)
GL_ARB_fragment_coord_conventions extension (for swrast, i965, and Gallium drivers)
GL_EXT_texture_array extension (swrast driver only)
GL_APPLE_object_purgeable extension (swrast and i945/i965 DRI drivers)
Much improved support for EGL in Mesa
New state trackers for OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0
Dedicated documentation for Gallium
Massive improvements to the Gallium driver for R300-R500 Radeons; this driver is now moderately stable but not terribly performant.
Removed support for color-index rendering
Removed support for GCC versions earlier than 3.3.0.
