Second Mesa 19.1.0 release candidate is now available with Radeon and Intel fixes and two bugs blocking a final release
Mesa 19.1.0 is scheduled to be released at the end of May but this could be delayed due to regressions shown by the piglit and cts-runner tests used to determine if there are bigger regressions in new code.
The blocker bugs are:
- #110302 - [bisected][regression] piglit egl-create-pbuffer-surface and egl-gl-colorspace regressions
- #110357 - [REGRESSION] [BISECTED] [OpenGL CTS] cts-runner --type=gl46 fails in new attempted "41" configuration
There are also many improvements, specially for users of Intel and AMD hardware, since the release of Mesa 19.1.0 RC1. These are:
- radv: Do not use extra descriptor space for the 3rd plane.
- anv: Fix limits when VK_EXT_descriptor_indexing is used
