New Features


Bug fixes

Internal code changes

A number of Mesa program-related structs were renamed. For example struct vertex_program is now struct gl_vertex_program. All the effected drivers have been updated.

Ian Romanick updated the GL API dispatch code in a number of ways. First, many old/unused extensions were removed. Second, the static entrypoints for some extensions were removed. This means GL function pointers will have to be used more often (e.g. use glXGetProcAddressARB()).
