Hi All,

Just curious to know if there is a reason that libGL is not being updated in this release. KDE, Xorg and Nvidia seem to have been. I would have thought libGL might be bumped to. Considering its is supposedly very important for those running ATI card under the radeon and radeonhd drivers not to mention other fixes(like, Assorted fixes to VMware SVGA gallium driver).

>From ----> http://www.x.org/wiki/radeonhd%3Aexperimental_3D
"Mesa r600 driver was added in 7.6.1, however it it good idea to use 7.7 at least "

According to the release notes for PC-BSD 8.1 beta. It still uses 7.4.4. Is this to avoid potential upgrade issues for users?

Releases of libGL/Mesa

>From Mesa 7.5 Release Notes 
"Note that the Mesa project is no longer using odd/even version numbers to indicate development/stable releases. The so-called development releases have been fairly stable. If you're especially concerned with stability you should probably look for "point" releases such as 7.5.1 which will be a bug-fix release"

Regards Jarrod
