  • [Mesa-dev] [ANNOUNCE] mesa 20.3.0
    Hi list,
    
    I'd like to announce that 20.3.0 is now available for general
    consumption. We only slipped on week, which is excelent, and convenient
    to avoid a release right before Christmas. Special thanks to Ken Graunke
    for getting the last blocking issue resolved very quickly to get this
    release out.

  • Mesa 20.3.0 is out bringing tons of improvements for Linux open source graphics drivers | GamingOnLinux

    Mesa 20.3.0 is the latest and greatest when it comes to Linux open source graphics, bringing with it new hardware support, performance improvements and more. Mesa drivers are what power the likes of Intel and AMD on Linux with the latest Vulkan and OpenGL support whereas NVIDIA have their own proprietary driver.

    As always, with it being a brand new release if you're concerned about stability you might want to wait for the first point release with Mesa 20.3.1.

  • Mesa 20.3 Released With Big Improvements For Open-Source Graphics Drivers - Phoronix

    Mesa 20.3 has been released as the Q4'2020 open-source graphics driver update, primarily around providing OpenGL and Vulkan support on the likes of Intel and AMD Radeon graphics along with the reverse-engineered Nouveau support, many smaller drivers especially in the embedded space, and the growing list of CPU-based implementations and other translation efforts.

    Mesa 20.3 as usual sees much of the exciting work for the Intel and AMD Radeon graphics driver work -- including new hardware support -- but this quarter there has also been a lot of core work, the Raspberry Pi Vulkan driver added, OpenCL compute improvements, ongoing work around the Zink OpenGL-on-Vulkan Gallium3D code, and much more.

Mesa 20.3 released with Raspberry Pi 4 V3DK driver

  • Mesa 20.3 released with Raspberry Pi 4 V3DK driver, Panfrost Bifrost support

    We’ve previously reported that the Vulkan 1.0 conformant V3DK driver for Raspberry Pi 4 and other Broadcom BCM2711 based platforms was part of Mesa 20.3 open-source graphics framework. But at the time, it was still under development.

    The good news is that Mesa 20.3 has now been released, and there’s much more than Raspberry Pi 4 support, as Collabora informed us the release also included Arm Mali Bifrost GPU support via the open-source Panfrost driver.

Chafa 1.6.0: Wider

Here’s another one from the terminal graphics extravaganza dept: Chafa 1.6.0 brings fullwidth character support, so in addition to the usual block elements and ASCII art, you now get some mean CJK art too. Or grab as many fonts as you can and combine all of the Unicode into one big glorious mess. Chafa can efficiently distinguish between thousands of symbols, so it also runs fast enough for animations — up to a point. Since some users want this in environments where it’s not practical to build from source or even to have nice things like GLib, I’ve started adding statically linked builds. These are pretty bare-bones (fewer image loaders, no man page), so look to your steadfast distribution first. Speaking of distributions, a big thank you to the packagers. Special thanks go to Florian Viehweger for getting in touch re. adding it to OpenBSD ports, and Mo Zhou (Debian), Michael Vetter (openSUSE), Herby Gillot (MacPorts), @chenrui and Carlo Cabrera (Homebrew) for getting 1.6 out there before I could even finish this post.

  • Unix Tutorial - Annual Digest - 2020

    Wow, 2020 just flew by! With one lockdown after another, most of the year was spent working from home and checking local government websites for guidance around when schools and after-schools would re-open. I didn’t blog as much as I hoped but stayed sane and otherwise productive - so can’t complain much about 2020.
