Comment 1 Jérémie Laval 2017-04-03 21:03:07 UTC
We (finally) have a build of the latest master with indirect rendering. Please re-test using latest commit of the android-designer-indirectrendering branch (26a22ef5).

PS: please use zip instead of rar when attaching logs as it's the most universal format to decompress.
