Phoronix heard Intel plans to reveal an open-source OpenGL 3.0 driver by the end of the year.
"There's more good news out of the 2011 X.Org Developers'
Conference in Chicago. Besides the big news that the S3TC patent might
be invalid, PathScale has a working OpenCL compute stack, and other
events, here's something very exciting: Intel really expects to have
working OpenGL 3.0 support in Mesa for hardware drivers by the end of
this calendar year!"
