Among some of the most interesting things implemented in the second Release Candidate build of the Mesa 11.1.0 3D graphics library, we can mention support for adding AM_CPPFLAGS to libloader_la_CPPFLAGS, numerous fd management cleanups, and support for using DSA functions for VBOs in brw_meta_fast_clear.

In the meantime, you can download the Mesa 11.1.0 Release Candidate 2 sources right now from Softpedia and start compiling them in your GNU/Linux operating system, but please try to keep in mind that this is a pre-release version, not suitable for deployment in production environments where stability is of the essence.
