Mesa 17.0.6 is the latest bug-fix release for the 17.0 series, but it also comes with AMD Polaris 12 support for the 'radv' Vulkan driver that has been back-ported.

Note: Mesa 17.1 was released recently too.

There's around 56 changes for this release, with assorted bug fixes and clean-ups. Nothing truly major, but it's generally advisable to upgrade to point releases to have a more stable experience. A lot of the changes seem to focus around 'travis', which is software to help test builds.

You can find the full release notes here. It was released two days ago, but I tend to take a little break on weekends now so sorry for the delay in posting. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Always glad to see updates to Mesa. Every little bit helps.

The only news you have to do on a weekend is if Blizzard releases a native WoW linux client on a weekend.
Aka the new "when pigs can fly".
