How to Install Mesa 17.1.0 via PPA on Ubuntu Desktop

   Mesa 17.1.0 implements the OpenGL 4.5 API, but the version reported by glGetString(GL_VERSION) or glGetIntegerv(GL_MAJOR_VERSION) / glGetIntegerv(GL_MINOR_VERSION) depends on the particular driver being used. Some drivers don't support all the features required in OpenGL 4.5. OpenGL 4.5 is only available if requested at context creation because compatibility contexts are not supported.

Mesa 17.1.0  New features
  • OpenGL 4.2 on i965/ivb
  • GL_ARB_gpu_shader_fp64 on i965/ivybridge
  • GL_ARB_gpu_shader_int64 on i965/gen8+, nvc0, radeonsi, softpipe, llvmpipe
  • GL_ARB_shader_ballot on nvc0, radeonsi
  • GL_ARB_shader_clock on nv50, nvc0, radeonsi

How to install Deluge 1.3.15 on Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04 & Higher

   Deluge is a fully-featured cross-platform ​BitTorrent client. It is ​Free Software, licensed under the ​GNU GPLv3+ and adheres to ​freedesktop standards enabling it to work across many desktop environments.

Deluge 1.3.15 a bug fix release that resolves a few issues introduced in 1.3.14 along with other minor fixes.
Network Proxy Settings:
  • Since libtorrent 0.16 there has only been a single proxy that applies to all types (Peer, web, etc.) so to prevent bugs with accidentally unsetting the proxy values Deluge now only sets a single proxy but mirrors the settings from peer type to the other proxy types for user display only to show that proxy is enabled for all connections. In the GTKUI this means that the other types are greyed out and will be unable to be set. This is a stopgap measure for 1.3 code and is properly fixed for 2.0 release.
