Collabora’s Focus on Advancing the Performance of Open Source Graphics in Linux

As you might know, Collabora’s developers are always involved in the development of Mesa and the Linux kernel, and they managed to add numerous enhancements to the recently released Mesa 17.0 3D Graphics Library and Linux kernel 4.10, which are now landing in many popular GNU/Linux distributions. Mesa 17.0 is a major achievement, not only that it brings the open-source Intel graphics driver on par with its Windows equivalent now that’s fully conformant with the Vulkan 1.0, OpenGL 4.5, and OpenGL ES 3.2 APIs, but also because it ships with the Etnaviv driver that provides support for various Vivante GPUs in NXP/Freescale i.MX SoCs.
