OpenGL3 support in Fedora 18 issues

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Posted this question in the Using Fedora forum a few days ago but haven't gotten a reply yet so I'll post my question here as well: I was testing a live CD of F18 and noticed that even with kernel 3.6+, xserver 1.13, and mesa 9.x glxinfo only reports opengl 2.1 support for my radeon hd 4000-series card. A daily snapshot of Ubuntu 13.04, which has similar package\kernel versions as F18 shows opengl 3.0 support for the same RV730 radeon card with the open source driver. I was just wondering if there was a reason fedora wasn't supporting the newer opengl version. (HowTos)
