Collabora’s Emil Velikov is announcing today the general availability of the sixth and last scheduled maintenance update for the Mesa 13.0 3D Graphics Library series for GNU/Linux distributions.

Mesa 13.0.6 is here only to backport many of the improvements from the newest stable branch, Mesa 17.0, to the Mesa 13.0 series, which some of you are still using on your Linux distro. However, you should start migrating to Mesa 17.0 as soon as you read this.

“This is the final anticipated release in the 13.0 series. Users are encouraged to migrate to the 17.0 series in order to obtain future fixes,” said Emil Velikov, Software Release Engineer at Collabora, in the mailing list announcement.
