The Mesa 3D graphics library has been updated today to version 22.3, a major update to this powerful and open-source graphics stack that brings numerous new features and improvements for better 3D graphics and gaming.
Coming a little over two months after Mesa 22.2, the Mesa 22.3 release is here to introduce new features like Mesa-DB, a new single file cache type, initial GFX11/RDNA3 support on the Radeon Vulkan (RADV) driver, OpenGL 4.5 support on the Freedreno/a6xx driver, Radeon Raytracing Analyzer integration using the
RADV_RRA_* environment variables, as well as shader disk cache and Mali T620 support on Collabora’s Panfrost driver.
Mesa 22.3 also adds support for R8G8B8, B8G8R8, R16G16B16, and 64-bit vertex buffer formats on the Radeon Vulkan (RADV) driver, along with various ray tracing optimizations and the VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state2 feature.
Various new OpenGL and Vulkan extensions are now also supported across the graphics stack. For example, the Radeon Vulkan (RADV) driver now supports the VK_EXT_attachment_feedback_loop_layout, VK_KHR_global_priority, VK_EXT_load_store_op_none, VK_EXT_mutable_descriptor_type, and VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state3 Vulkan extensions.
On the other hand, the Intel Vulkan (ANV) driver now supports the VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state3 and VK_EXT_mesh_shader Vulkan extensions, the Gallium LLVMpipe driver now supports the GL_ARB_shader_clock OpenGL extension, the Lavapipe driver now supports the VK_KHR_shader_clock, VK_EXT_attachment_feedback_loop_layout, and VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state3 Vulkan extensions, and the Zink driver now supports the GL_KHR_blend_equation_advanced_coherent OpenGL extension.
