I've just uploaded the Mesa 3.3 files to http://www.sourceforge.net.
They can be downloaded from http://sourceforge.net/project/filelist.php?group_id=3
Following the Linux kernel even/odd release number policy, Mesa 3.3
is considered to be a development version. Mesa 3.2.1 is the latest
Mesa 3.3 should be pretty reliable though as it's been in use by
XFree86/DRI for a few months now. If you try Mesa 3.3 and find
a problem, please report it to the Mesa bug database on sourceforge.net
I hope to release the 3.4/stable version in a timely manner.
Here's what's new in version 3.3:
- antialiased triangles now implemented
- GL_EXT_texture_env_add texture mode extension
- GLX 1.3 API
- support for separate draw/read buffers (ie GL_SGI_make_current_read)
- thread-safe API dispath
- improved glxinfo program
- demos/texdown program to measure texture download performance
- glext.h header file
- demos/geartrain program
- GL_EXT_texture_lod_bias extension
- demos/lodbias program
- further optimized glRead/DrawPixels for 16-bit TrueColor X visuals
- GLX_EXT_visual_rating extension (a no-op, however)
- GL_HP_occlusion_test extension (for X and OS/Mesa drivers)
- demos/occlude program
- GL_SGIS_pixel_texture and GL_SGIX_pixel_texture extensions
- demos/pixeltex program
- GL_SGI_color_matrix extension
- GL_SGI_color_table extension
- GL_EXT_histogram extension
- GL_ARB_texture_cube_map extension
- added xdemos/glxheads and xdemos/manywin
- demos/texenv.c demo
- GL_EXT_texture_env_combine extension (by Holger Waechtler)
- Xlib driver is now thread-safe (see xdemos/glthreads)
- various GL conformance failures fixed since 3.2.1
- gl.h now uses #defines instead of C enums for all tokens
- glu.h now uses #defines instead of C enums for all tokens
- moved programs from 3Dfx/demos/ into demos/ directory
I think that's ten new extensions altogether!
I'm also happy to report that Mesa 3.3 passes all the OpenGL 1.1
conformance tests, except for antialiased lines in a few situations.
I plan to rewrite the AA line algorithm for the next release.
Keith Whitwell helped a lot in fixing the remaining conformance bugs.

PS: I'll be away at SIGGRAPH all next week and won't be reading/replying
to email too often. I'll see some of you there!
