+ <p>The Mesa ports were updated to 10.6.8. At the same time the
+ ports received a major overhaul to make sure all ports are
+ correctly configured.
+ Also the dual version support was removed, there is only one
+ mesa version for all supported FreeBSD versions.
+ The libosmesa port was merged into the Mesa framework.</p>
+ <p>Another big item that was included in the Mesa port was
+ OpenCL. There are two GPU based OpenCL implimentations
+ lang/clover for supported Radeon cards and
+ lang/beignet for supported Intel cards (currently only
+ Thanks go to Johannes Dieterich, O. Hartman, and Koop Mast
+ for making this happen.</p>
+ <p>Now that Mesa is up-to-date, we can do the same with the
+ X.Org server.
+ Currently at 1.14, an update to 1.17 is ready.
+ It should be committed shortly.</p>
+ <p>On the kernel side progress has been made with the
+ i915 update. The driver is able to attach.
+ There are some reports that the X.Org server starts, but Mesa
+ is unhappy so acceleration doesn't work yet.
+ If you want to test, instructions will be posted on the wiki,
+ in the i915 update article (see links).
+ At this stage, we can only accept patches though, we won't be
+ able to provide support.</p>
+ <p>We attended two conferences: XDC 2015 in Toronto and
+ EuroBSDcon 2015 in Stockholm.
+ Reports will be posted on the blog.</p>
