RISC OS Hardware accelerated 3D graphics on RISC OS took a step closer to reality, thanks to Simon Wilson. He claims to have ported Mesa 3.2, a 3D graphics library that sports an OpenGL software interface. More importantly, he says he has also ported an Nvidia graphics accelerator from BeOS to harness the GeForce2 video card in the Iyonix to plot graphics fast in hardware.

All current development is happening on DRM/DRI/mesa6.

Whenever Xegl is ready, it should be simpler to port to other OSes than the current DRI/x pair. Xegl isolates most of the OS specific code into the fbdev/DRM device drivers.
