Work On X-Video In Gallium3D Is Underway

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this month we shared that X-Video and EXA 
| support were coming to Gallium3D in the form of a state 
| tracker to accelerate these X.Org APIs across any 
| Gallium3D driver.


Red Hat CEO vs. Torvalds: More Linux features don't equate to bloat

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst disagreed with Linus 
| Torvaldsâ contention that Linux has become bloated. 
| Whitehurst said that Linux is growing and becoming more

,----[ Quote ]
| FreeDesktop.org hacker Zack Rusin has provided an update on his blog about
| some of his recent activities when it comes to Gallium3D.


VDPAU + OpenGL 3.0 On Gallium3D This Summer?

,----[ Quote
| This is the fourth year that the X.Org project will be participating in
| Google's Summer of Code project. In the past we have seen work like Generic
| Gallium3D Video Decoding using a graphics card's shaders to assist in video
| decoding no matter the hardware vendor. This year there are a few interesting
| possibilities.


X@FOSDEM 2009: RandR 1.3, GEM, Gallium3D, Etc

| 2009 are now available on Phoronix. There were nine topics in total from
| RandR 1.3 to shader compiler optimization strategies.


OpenCL In Gallium3D By Summer

,----[ Quote ]
| Zack Rusin, one of the influential developers behind the Linux graphics
| scene, has blogged about OpenCL support in the free software stack. Just
| yesterday we talked about support for OpenCL in GCC, but Zack's work deals

| having gone through three release candidates. The new features found in this
| latest version of the standard Open-Source OpenGL stack is proper support for
| GLSL 1.20 and the Intel DRI driver now supports the Graphics Execution
| Manager and Direct Rendering Infrastructure 2.


Gallium3D To Enter Mainline Mesa Code

,----[ Quote ]
| As we shared late last week, Mesa 7.3 is getting ready for release with the
| first release candidate having arrived. Mesa 7.3 will feature improved GLSL
| 1.20 support, support for the Graphics Execution Manager, and Direct

Gallium3D: a short explanation where it fits in

,----[ Quote ]
| Currently Gallium3D is not production ready yet. Early 2008 the state was
| that the first real world driver, an older Intel one, was working quite well.
| It might take a while until Gallium3D really enters the stage.
