Mesa 12.0.6 Hits the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.10 Proposed Repositories

It would appear that Mesa 12.0.6 3D Graphics Library, which was announced last week by Collabora’s Emil Velikov, has already hit the xenial-proposed and yakkety-proposed channels of the Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus) and Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) operating systems. So if you have the proposed repository (pre-release updates) enabled on your Ubuntu PC, you could update to Mesa 12.0.6 right now by enabling proposed updates in Software & Updates. However, Mesa 12.0.6 being the last in the series, it’s recommended that you move to the Mesa 13 branch from a stable third-party PPA, such as Padoka Stable Mesa.
