Mesa 19.1 is officially out plus NVIDIA 430.26 is available now

Posted by , | Views: 4,949

Two sets of driver releases for you recently, with Mesa 19.1 now officially out as quite a big upgrade and a minor NVIDIA driver change.

First up, NVIDIA 430.26 is out as an update to their stable long-lived driver series. It adds support for various Quadro GPUs, as well as fixing a bug in 415.13, that caused audio over DisplayPort to not work in some configurations.

The bigger one is for AMD/Intel with Mesa 19.1 being officially released today. As usual, the Mesa team note that since it's brand new you might want to wait for Mesa 19.1.1 to have a fully stable experience.

See the official Mesa release notes here, however their documents aren't designed for your average human to parse as they're always just a list of various extensions and Vulkan/OpenGL features that made it in. I do hope they eventually work on something a little more readable for releases. You should expect new hardware support, performance improvements, bug fixes and so on.

anyone on Opensuse TW or Leap can download
from this repo
, for now till official updates are packaged


if you are on 15.1 just use the 15.0 repo, it works the same.

The Nvidia driver seems to fix the visual bug in Assassins Creed Odyssey that has been present in the last few driver releases https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk/issues/928.

Stable is a bit behind, but unstable was last updated less than two weeks ago.

I was comparing this to oibaf PPA, this repo was updated very quickly, always padoka was similar with updates (unstable padoka repo).

Funnily enough, stable just updated as well. The build system switch to meson might be the reason for the longer delay.
