+Mesa 7.12 is a new development release.
+People who are concerned with stability and reliability should stick
+with a previous release or wait for Mesa 7.12.1.
+Mesa 7.12 implements the OpenGL 2.1 API, but the version reported by
+glGetString(GL_VERSION) depends on the particular driver being used.
+Some drivers don't support all the features required in OpenGL 2.1.
+See the <a href="install.html">Compiling/Installing page</a> for prerequisites
+for DRI hardware acceleration.
+<h2>MD5 checksums</h2>
+<h2>New features</h2>
+<h2>Bug fixes</h2>
+<li>Removed all DRI drivers that did not support DRI2.  Specifically,
+  i810, mach64, mga, r128, savage, sis, tdfx, and unichrome were
+  removed.</li>
+<li>Removed support for BeOS.</li>
+<li>Removed the obsolete (and unmaintained) Windows "gldirect" and
+  "ICD" drivers.</li>
+<li>Removed the linux-fbdev software driver.</li>
+<li>Removed all remnants of paletted texture support.  As required by
+  desktop OpenGL, <tt>GL_COLOR_INDEX</tt> data can still be uploaded
+  to a color (e.g., RGBA) texture.  However, the data cannot be stored
+  internally as color-index.</li>
