Amd developer Qiang Yu begun working on an open-source Mali-400 graphics driver.This new Mesa Gallium3D driver can run a simple OpenGL triangle draw application and now he working on the shader compiler bits. There is many Allwinner dev boards (also in other SoCs too) and the only thing left out is Mali, then we can have fully free systems with open drivers. This new Mali-400 OpenGL driver in development and can be found on GitHub and is not based on the past old Lima driver but is reusing the hardware information and its hilbert render curve algorithm. This new driver consists of the Gallium3D driver, the libdrm support, and a new kernel DRM driver.



Here is video what mali 400 can do with original proprietary driver and maybe one day we can have same with opensource driver :)
