| Version 1.3 of the Resize and Rotate extension in X Server 1.6 supports

| a video showing some of the RandR 1.3 features. DRI2, of course, allows a  
| number of new features such as the ability to enable direct rendering to 
| redirected windows.    


More GUI goodness for benchmarking.

The Phoronix Test Suite Gets A GUI

,----[ Quote ]
| Since releasing the Phoronix Test Suite to the public a year ago, one of the 
| most popular feature requests has been for a graphical user interface. The 
| Phoronix Test Suite is not exactly difficult to use from a command line, but 
| this feature has been in development for Phoronix Test Suite 2.0. However, 
| with this morning's release of Phoronix Test Suite 1.8.0 Alpha 2, a preview 
| of this GUI has been introduced. Those testing Linux, OpenSolaris, BSD, and 
| Mac OS X systems now have a simple yet intuitive interface for facilitating 
| their system benchmarks.

| announcement that he intended to ship X Server 1.6 and he would step up as
| the release manager.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
