Mesa 7.12, Linux 3.2 Likely For Ubuntu 12.04 LT

Yesterday at the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Orlando, Canonical employees and others tried to hash out the general requirements for the X.Org stack to be found in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

The key components likely making up this stack in the “Precise Pangolin” release for next April are:

X.Org Server 1.11 – xorg-server 1.11 has been out since before the release of Ubuntu 11.10, but they didn’t ship it then over not wanting ABI breakage with the graphics drivers and needing to wait around for AMD / NVIDIA (but namely AMD with their Catalyst driver) to support the new ABI. By the time Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is released, xorg-server 1.12 will likely be here, except they will still be on version 1.11.
