The latest work landing in Mesa Git has been for H.264 VA-API video encoding.
Earlier this month I wrote about the work being done by AMD engineers on H.264 VA-API video encoding inside Gallium3D. Of course, with the code being worked on by AMD, the primary focus has been for their RadeonSI Galloum3D driver with GPUs that have their VCE video encode engine.

Starting from version 1.21.0 you'll experience an improved graphical user interface, where show and compare views are connected. With this you can navigate between viewing different descriptions as well as comparing them, so working with multiple system descriptions is much faster and offers greater usability.
When you start the graphical user interface you will get a list of all available system descriptions, where you can choose one to view more details. The following screen shot shows this list. You can use the search mask to filter them for certain terms. Simply click on the description you would like to see and it will get you to the details view. Run the command `machinery list --html` to get to the list view.
