Question Mesa DRI why so old?


Hi,

When running glxinfo I see:

OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R300 20060815 AGP 8x x86/MMX/SSE2 TCL

Does anyone know why it says 20060815 and not a more recent date?

Regards,

Because the DRI developers are really bad at updating the date renderer string. It really does not have anything to do with when the code was last updated. Slackware 13 comes with Mesa 7.5, which was released on July 17th, 2009. There has only been one official release since then (7.5.1 on September 2nd, already in current).

For what it's worth (which really isn't much), the date has been updated in git master and now shows 20090101.
