He’s one of those too rare people who works to make a difference in this world and he does so by leveraging the power of Linux and free and open source software for the greater good. As the founder of the Reglue project (originally called Helios), he’s responsible for putting refurbished computers in the hands of financially challenged students in and around the Austin, Texas area where he resides.

Mesa 10.3 release candidate 1

Mesa 10.3 release candidate 1 is now available for testing. The current plan is to have an additional release candidate each Friday until the eventual 10.3 release, (Ian can follow up to state what the planned date is for that). The tag in the git repository for Mesa 10.3-rc1 is 'mesa-10.3-rc1'. I have also pushed a tag '10.3-branchpoint' to mark the point where master and 10.3 diverge. This should make git-describe a bit more useful. As a reminder, with the 10.3 branch now created, patches nominated with: CC: will now be candidates only for the new 10.3 branch. To nominate patches for the older 10.2 branch as well, please use: CC: "10.2 10.3" The expectation is that the 10.2 branch will remain alive with bi-weekly releases until after 10.3.1 release. Mesa 10.3 release candidate 1 is available for download from ftp://freedesktop.org/pub/mesa/10.3 Read more
