"Mesa, the Open Source OpenGL-compatible implementation, just
got a new version. This is primarily a bugfix release, and includes
fixes for bugs seen in Loki
games such as Heretic 2.
Mesa is a 3-D graphics library with an API which is very similar to
that of OpenGL. To the extent that Mesa utilizes the OpenGL command
syntax or state machine, it is being used with authorization from
Silicon Graphics, Inc. While Mesa uses the OpenGL API and mimics
its semantics, it is important to understand that Mesa is not a
real implementation of OpenGL since it is not licensed. That said,
Mesa is still a viable alternative to OpenGL. Most OpenGL
applications should run with Mesa without code changes.
