[ Thanks to the AppWatch Staff for this announcement: ]

"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.
