Emil Velikov, the new Mesa release manager, just landed a large set of libdrm patches for improving the open-source graphics drivers for Android.
Emil enabled Android build support within Mesa's DRM library (libdrm) for the Intel driver along with the Freedreno (reverse-engineered Qualcomm Adreno), Nouveau, and Radeon drivers. Up to now any Android support wasn't part of mainline libdrm and landed today in time for the next update, libdrm v2.4.57. At this time there's no Android updates to talk about for the Mesa/Gallium3D drivers themselves.
The new Mesa release manager has also been working on some other Mesa build improvements recently like working on make dist support.
Don’t get me wrong, Android is a beautiful operating system if ever there was one – and dumbed down to the max, which makes it even more beautiful in the minds of many mobile users.

While normally one might expect high end phones to get the latest and greatest features first, this time we see a bit of a surprising reversal. The Desire 510 is HTC's first 64-bit phone, and the first announced device with Snapdragon 410. For those that aren't familiar with Snapdragon 410, it has four Cortex A53 CPU cores running at 1.2 GHz, along with an Adreno 306 GPU which suggests that it is a mild modification of the current Adreno 305 GPU that we see in the Snapdragon 400. Overall, this should make for a quite fast SoC compared to Snapdragon 400, as Anand has covered in the Snapdragon 410 launch announcement.
