<h1>Mesa 17.4.0 Release Notes / TBD</h1>
Mesa 17.4.0 is a new development release.
People who are concerned with stability and reliability should stick
with a previous release or wait for Mesa 17.4.1.
Mesa 17.4.0 implements the OpenGL 4.5 API, but the version reported by
glGetString(GL_VERSION) or glGetIntegerv(GL_MAJOR_VERSION) /
glGetIntegerv(GL_MINOR_VERSION) depends on the particular driver being used.
Some drivers don't support all the features required in OpenGL 4.5. OpenGL
4.5 is <strong>only</strong> available if requested at context creation
because compatibility contexts are not supported.
<h2>SHA256 checksums</h2>
<h2>New features</h2>

<li>Disk shader cache support for i965 when MESA_GLSL_CACHE_DISABLE environment variable is set to "0" or "false"</li>
