There's been happening pretty much since Bethesda finally decided a few days ago to → remove Denuvo from DOOM (2016).

I've added the following → patch to my Mesa builds:
cso: don't release sampler states that are bound
If you're running radeonsi I'd recommend to upgrade your packages. Enjoy!

Marek Olšák has closed an one year old → bug in Mesa which has caused some weird GPU lockups on RadeonSI cards with a handful of games. The bug itself is probably about nine years old but hasn't affected any other driver besides RadeonSI. The needed patch adds one "if" to cso_cache.c.
I will try to add this patch to my Mesa builds in my spare time this week.
DestinedToDie has → announced that the release of OpenMW 0.41.0 is going to happen in a week or two. There's already a RC for testing.
It seems that the Intel ILO Gallium3D driver is going to be removed from Mesa. It has been started by LunarG Inc. and has not been maintained for ages. It's sad to see that Intel hasn't taken over ILO and kept developing their old-fashioned i965 driver which will not support any of Gallium3D's fancy state trackers like Gallium-Nine.
