June 21, 2001

Mesa 3.5 has been released. This is a new development release.

    New:
    - internals of Mesa divided into modular pieces (Keith Whitwell)
    - 100% OpenGL 1.2 conformance (passes all conformance tests)
    - new AA line algorithm
    - GL_EXT_convolution extension
        - GL_ARB_imaging subset
        - OSMesaCreateContextExt() function
        - GL_ARB_texture_env_add extension (same as GL_EXT_texture_env_add)
        - GL_MAX_TEXTURE_UNITS_ARB now defaults to eight
        - GL_EXT_fog_coord extension (Keith Whitwell)
        - GL_EXT_secondary_color extension (Keith Whitwell)
        - GL_ARB_texture_env_add extension (same as GL_EXT_texture_env_add)
        - GL_SGIX_depth_texture extension
        - GL_SGIX_shadow and GL_SGIX_shadow_ambient extensions
        - demos/shadowtex.c demo of GL_SGIX_depth_texture and GL_SGIX_shadow
        - GL_ARB_texture_env_combine extension
        - GL_ARB_texture_env_dot3 extension
        - GL_ARB_texture_border_clamp (aka GL_SGIS_texture_border_clamp)
        - OSMesaCreateContextExt() function
        - libOSMesa.so library, contains the OSMesa driver interface
        - GL/glxext.h header file for GLX extensions
        - somewhat faster software texturing, fogging, depth testing
        - all color-index conformance tests now pass (only 8bpp tested)
        - SPARC assembly language TCL optimizations (David Miller)
        - GL_SGIS_generate_mipmap extension
    Bug Fixes:
        - fbiRev and tmuRev were unitialized when using Glide3
        - fixed a few color index mode conformance failures; all pass now
        - now appling antialiasing coverage to alpha after texturing
        - colors weren't getting clamped to [0,1] before color table lookup
        - fixed RISC alignment errors caused by COPY_4UBV macro
        - drawing wide, flat-shaded lines could cause a segfault
        - vertices now snapped to 1/16 pixel to fix rendering of tiny triangles
    Changes:
        - SGI's Sample Implementation (SI) 1.3 GLU library replaces Mesa GLU
        - new libOSMesa.so library, contains the OSMesa driver interface
