Collabora's Timothy Arceri, one of the firm's open-source graphics driver developers, has written a blog post about recent work they've done to the open-source Intel Mesa driver stack.
Arceri covers the work done to getting the Mesa driver to exposing OpenGL 4.4 for Intel Broadwell hardware and newer. He also reiterates that all of the necessary extensions for OpenGL 4.5 are already implemented too (for Broadwell and newer).
The only reason OpenGL 4.5 isn't officially advertised yet by the Intel Mesa driver is that there are some conformance test failures to first fix.
Timothy concluded by saying over the next few months at Collabora he will be working on performance optimizations to the Intel Linux driver. Among the items he will be focusing on are the Mesa on-disk shader cache and mproving optimastion passes for the GLSL compiler.
