-Mesa 9.x supports the OpenGL 3.1 specification.
+Since the release of 17.0.0, Mesa supports the OpenGL 4.5 API specification.
+Note that the version reported by glGetString(GL_VERSION) or
+glGetIntegerv(GL_MAJOR_VERSION) / glGetIntegerv(GL_MINOR_VERSION) depends on
+the particular driver being used. Some drivers don't support all the features
+required in OpenGL 4.5. OpenGL 4.5 is only available if requested at context
+creation because compatibility contexts are not supported.
+For earlier versions, consult the release notes for the version of the
+OpenGL API they support.
