Work On Mesa 7.7 Is Underway

,----[ Quote ]
| Anyhow, work on Mesa 7.7 has already started. A number of commits have poured 
| into Mesa's Git "master" code-base. Among this work are commits affecting 
| LLVMpipe, the Intel i915 Gallium3D driver, the Radeon Gallium3D driver, and the 
| general Mesa stack. The Intel hardware driver and software rasterizer has picked 
| up support for the GL_ARB_draw_elements_base_vertex, GL_ARB_depth_clamp, and 
| GL_NV_depth_clamp. The two prior OpenGL extensions are part of the OpenGL 3 
| specification, which Mesa has slowly been adopting. 


Linux 2.6.32 To Get R600 KMS Along With 3D

,----[ Quote ]
| Additionally, this code provides firmware loading support for the 
| r128/mga/radeon + Radeon KMS drivers, the latest Intel drm-next code, Radeon 
| R100/200 KMS command stream checking, Radeon KMS TV-Out support, merged FB 
| handling for all KMS drivers, and DMT timings + better HDMI EDID decoding. 



Radeon Driver Picks Up VBOs, OQ Support

,----[ Quote ]
| There are quite a number of changes in store for Mesa 7.6, such as new state
| trackers for Gallium3D, other Gallium3D-specific improvements, optimized IR,
| and many changes to the different Mesa 3D drivers. Adding to that list, the
| open-source ATI R300+ driver has just picked up support for Vertex Buffer
| Objects and Occlusion Queries.


Radeon 3D Driver Rewrite Merged To Master

,----[ Quote ]
| It has been several months coming, but the "radeon-rewrite" driver has been
| merged into the mainline Mesa code-base in the past hour.
| [...]
| This radeon-rewrite merger is also good news for those interested in the
| forthcoming merger of the TTM memory manager and Radeon kernel mode-setting
| into the Linux 2.6.31 kernel.


AMD/ATI Radeon HD 4770 On Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| To those of you interested in AMD's new graphics card, the ATI Radeon HD
| 4770, it does work with Linux. Right now you can run this first 40nm GPU
| using Catalyst 9.4, but you will see an "unsupported hardware" logo in the
| lower right hand corner. There may also be a few other bugs.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
