Linux News Today: Mesa 3D Graphics Library 11.0.1 Now Available for Download with Over 20 Bugfixes
After announcing the release of the eighth maintenance release of the still supported Mesa 10.6 branch, Collabora’s Emil Velikov comes today, September 26, with news about the first point release of the new Mesa 3D Graphics Library 11.0 series.
According to the release notes, which we’ve attached at the end of the article for reference, Mesa 11.0.1 fixes 21 issues that have been reported by users since the previous release of the software, mostly for Intel i965, but also for RadeonSI and Nouveau video drivers.
Among the most interesting things that landed in Mesa 3D Graphics Library 11.0.1, we can mention a fix for an issue with saturation on Intel i965, which occurred when mixing registers, support for loading constants as integers on Intel i965, and a fix for an issue with the maximum texture buffer size on Nouveau, which has been increased to 128M elements.
Moreover, there’s a fix for an issue with the blending of the L8 format for Freedreno, hardware registers will no longer be reswizzled for Intel i965, several ralloc parenting errors in Nir have been fixed, support for detecting underlying resource changes, as well as for updating tic on Nouveau has been implemented, and integer overflows that have buffers equal with or over 512MB are now avoided.
There’s now a fix for texture compression on big-endian systems
Mesa 11.0.1 comes with a fix for texture compression issues on big-endian systems, resolves issues with textureGrad for cubemaps on Intel i965, repairs errors that occurred when attempting to read the depth with glReadPixels, adds support for enabling read-only text segments on x86 systems, and it is capable of loading a fmask ptr that is relative to the resources array on RadeonSI.
The meta pbo path is now aborted if the TexSubImage function requires signed unsigned conversion, texture cache is now flushed for Nouveau when coherent bufs are present, it is now possible to convert the gbm bo format to the fourcc format during import of dma-buf, the GL_FRAMEBUFFER_ATTACHMENT_OBJECT_TYPE extension has been fixed for the default framebuffer, and severa issues related to t_dd_dmatmp have been fixed.
