<H1>Development Notes</H1>


<H2>Adding Extentions</H2>

<p>
To add a new GL extension to Mesa you have to do the following.
<pre>
   If glext.h doesn't define the extension, edit include/GL/gl.h and add:
	- new enum tokens
	- new API function entry points
	- #define GL_EXT_the_extension_name 1

   If adding a new API function (call it glNewFunctionEXT):
	- insert glNewFunctionEXT()into src/apiext.h
	- edit src/types.h and add NewFunction to the gl_api_table struct
	- implement gl_NewFunction() in the appropriate src file
	- hook gl_NewFunction() into pointers.c
	- add display list support in dlist.c for save_NewFunction()
	- add glNewFunctionEXT to gl_GetProcAddress() in extensions.c or
	  in the device driver's GetProcAddress() function if appropriate
</pre>
<p>
If adding new GL state be sure to update get.c and enable.c
</p>
<p>
In general, look for an extension similar to the new one that's already
implemented in Mesa and follow it by example.
</p>



<H2>Coding Style</H2>

<p>
Mesa's code style has changed over the years.  Here's the latest.
</p>

<p>
Comment your code!  It's extremely important that open-source code be
well documented.  Also, strive to write clean, easily understandable code.
</p>

<p>
3-space indentation
</p>

<p>
If you use tabs, set them to 8 columns
</p>

<p>
Brace example:
</p>
<pre>
	if (condition) {
	   foo;
	}
	else {
	   bar;
	}
</pre>

<p>
Here's the GNU indent command which will best approximate my preferred style:
</p>
<pre>
	indent -br -i3 -npcs infile.c -o outfile.c
</pre>


<p>
Local variable name example:  localVarName (no underscores)
</p>

<p>
Constants and macros are ALL_UPPERCASE, with _ between words
</p>

<p>
Global vars not allowed.
</p>

<p>
Function name examples:
</p>
<pre>
	glFooBar()       - a public GL entry point (in dispatch.c)
	_mesa_FooBar()   - the internal immediate mode function
	save_FooBar()    - retained mode (display list) function in dlist.c
	foo_bar()        - a static (private) function
	_mesa_foo_bar()  - an internal non-static Mesa function
</pre>


<H2>Writing a Device Driver</H2>

XXX to do

<H2>Making a New Mesa Release</H2>

<p>
These are the instructions for making a new Mesa release.
</p>

<p>
Prerequisites (later versions may work):
</p>
<ul>
<li>	autoconf 2.50
<li>	automake 1.4-p2
<li>	libtool 1.4
</ul>

<p>
Be sure to do a "cvs update -d ." in the Mesa directory to
get all the latest files.
</p>

Edit the docs/VERSIONS file too.
</p>

<p>
Edit Make-config and change the MESA_MAJOR and/or MESA_MINOR versions.
</p>

<p>
Edit the GNU configure stuff to change versions numbers as needed:
Update the version string (second argument) in the line
"AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE(Mesa, 3.3)" in the configure.in file.
</p>

<p>
Remove the leading `dnl' from the line "dnl AM_MAINTAINER_MODE".
</p>

<p>
Verify the version numbers near the top of configure.in
</p>

<p>
Run "fixam -f" to disable automatic dependency tracking.
</p>

<p>
Run the bootstrap script to generate the configure script.
</p>

<p>
Edit Makefile.X11 and verify DIRECTORY is set correctly.  The Mesa
sources must be in that directory (or there must be a symbolic link).
</p>

<p>
Edit Makefile.X11 and verify that LIB_NAME and DEMO_NAME are correct.
If it's a beta release, be sure the bump up the beta release number.
</p>

<p>
cp Makefile.X11 to Makefile so that the old-style Mesa makefiles
still work.  ./configure will overwrite it if that's what the user runs.
</p>

<p>
Make a symbolic link from $(DIRECTORY) to Mesa.  For example,
ln -s Mesa Mesa-3.3    This is needed in order to make a correct
tar file in the next step.
</p>

<p>
Make the distribution files.  From inside the Mesa directory:
<pre>
	make -f Makefile.X11 lib_tar
	make -f Makefile.X11 demo_tar
	make -f Makefile.X11 lib_zip
	make -f Makefile.X11 demo_zip
</pre>

<p>
Copy the distribution files to a temporary directory, unpack them,
compile everything, and run some demos to be sure everything works.
</p>

<p>
Upload the *.tar.gz and *.zip files to ftp.mesa3d.org
</p>

<p>
205
Update the web site.
