PLEASE test them.

Thanks,

It's not clear to me what is good about Mesa or if it would even work with my X5000 setup, but I seem to have version 18.0.5 already, whether it actually does anything or not, so I downloaded the new one. But googling for how to install it gave me virtually nothing (install PPA?? Surely not). Any hints on why and how?

Thanks, Christian. That sure made it easy.

The results of googling Mesa suggested to me that it is something especially good for gamers. I don't seem to have any games on 16.04.5 where I just now installed Mesa, although I think there are an incredible 54 of them in Remix!

Yes, you’re right. It’s for gamers.
