In the current queue we have:

In Mesa Core we include a fix to prevent a crash in

The GLSL compiler now includes a fix to add some int64 constant
propagation cases.

Intel drivers have received several patches. Among those, i965 has
gotten a fix for performance queries and another one for a problem that
could have caused rendering corruption or possibly hangs in programs
which use compute shaders.

AMD's drivers have also seen some improvements. radeonsi has gotten a
temporary workaround for a tessellation driver bug while radv includes
a patch to prevent a potential crash.

nouveau's has gotten a fix to properly set the sType for TXF ops to

For EGL, the Wayland platform of the the DRI2 drivers has received a
fix to prevent a possible indefinite block.

Take a look at section "Mesa stable queue" for more information.

Testing reports/general approval

Any testing reports (or general approval of the state of the branch)
