All the menus like "File", "Help", "View", "Object" and the window type selection menu (leftmost icon) are not displayed at all. They are there and can be used blindly.
This is marked as a regression. Do you have a commit SHA1 when it worked? Could you bisect to find the bad commit?
digging for old packages in xorg-edgers ppa showed:
That is as far as I can go, I think. Sadly no bisect powers here.
I'm having the same problem, bisecting finds this:

intel: avoid unnecessary front buffer flushing/updating
Before, if we just called glXMakeCurrent() and didn't render anything we'd
still trigger a flushFrontBuffer() call.
Now only set the intel->front_buffer_dirty field at state validation time
just before we draw something.
NOTE: additional calls to intel_check_front_buffer_rendering() might be
needed if I missed some rendering paths.

I also have the same problem on i915 and i965 platform.
increase priority and hope this could be fixed before 7.7 rc1.

intel: Fix more front-buffer rendering after Brian's less flushing patch.
bcbfda71b03303d3f008a6f3cf8cb7d9667bf8d2 left out many blit paths.
This fixes up more of them to get Blender to work again.
