Bug Description


Mesa stable release for zesty & backport to xenial. Xenial needs newer libdrm from zesty. These are part of the hwe-16.04 stack refresh.

[Test case]

Install, run desktop session, test xonotic.

the important hw drivers to test:
- i965 (Intel)
- radeonsi (AMD)

[Regression potential]

Spec compliance test suites are already run by Intel and others, so feature regressions should not be possible. GLESv1 support has been dropped from the packaging though, but packages that depend on libgles1-mesa have been pushed to proposed to drop the dependency, see bug 1676845 (applies to xenial).

17.0.x has been available for xenial and yakkety users for a while, and so far no-one has complained about driver regressions.
