Mesa is an open-source implementation of the OpenGL, OpenGL ES, and EGL
specifications for rendering interactive 3D graphics.

A change with this update which should be noted is that the default OpenGL renderer used for local X clients is now WGL (when available).

Please let us know if this causes any problems.

If you were setting the LIBGL_USE_WGL environment variable to select that, you may now remove it.

The previous default, of using the mesa software renderer, can be restored by setting the LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE environment variable.

The documentation linked below has been updated appropriately.

Complete documentation on OpenGL usage and configuration can be found here:
