Intel’s Vulkan Driver Should Be Merged Into Mainline Mesa Very Soon

Intel developers are planning to merge their branched version of Mesa with their Vulkan graphics driver into mainline Mesa in just a matter of days.

Since Intel published their open-source Vulkan Linux driver back on launch day, it’s been in a Mesa Git branch. However, now that the Intel Vulkan driver is getting into good shape and the changes against mainline Mesa are getting there too, the Open-Source Technology Center developers are planning for the merge to happen soon.
