Compiz With Radeon DRI2 Driver Almost There

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this month we shared that an experimental ATI DRI2 driver had emerged 
| that offered Direct Rendering Infrastructure 2 support to the open-source ATI  
| Linux driver with GEM and TTM bits. Today though Compiz is now working with 
| this ATI DRI2 code.   



Radeon HD 4850 Works With Open-Source Driver Already

,----[ Quote ]
| In our article this morning entitled AMD Makes An Evolutionary Leap In Linux
| Support, we briefly touched on the fact that AMD would be continuing in their
| open-source support for the Radeon HD 4000 generation of GPUs. AMD will
| release register information for the RV770 and the code to TCore and KGrids
| will help the community developers when it comes to 2D and 3D acceleration.


AMD Makes An Evolutionary Leap In Linux Support

| Tux being part of their licensed box design, forthcoming CrossFire support,
| and other major features coming are major wins for the Linux community. For
| those concerned that AMD is attempting to build back up its binary blockade,
| don't worry as their open-source strategy will continue with the RV770. AMD
| engineers are in the process of sanitizing the programming documentation for
| this brand new GPU for public release in the coming weeks. We suspect the
| xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-radeonhd developers will have the documentation
| even sooner under NDA. In addition, the open-sourcing of KGrids and TCore
| will be relevant and helpful for the 2D and 3D RV770 open-source support.
