    With a one-day delay, the Beta release of the upcoming GNOME 3.24 desktop environment is finally here, available for public testers who want to get an early taste of its new features.

  • Android kernels: does upstream matter?
    There is this false narrative floating around in the dev community on how upstreaming breaks drivers and OEM code. Upstreaming breaking drivers and OEM code is not universally true- in contrast, it defies the very definition of a stable kernel.

  • Mesa 17.2-RC5 Released, Final Should Come Within One Week
    The fifth and final planned release candidate of Mesa 17.2 is now available for testing.
  • Vulkan 1.0.59 Released With Shader Stencil Export
    Vulkan 1.0.59 is now available this weekend as the latest minor update to this high-performance graphics API. As usual, the bulk of this Vulkan 1.0.x point release is made up of document clarification/fixes to the text. Of those changes, nothing too notable stands out for Vulkan 1.0.59 but there is one new extension.
