[News] Tons of CPU/GPU Additions to Linux/X

Hash: SHA1

AMD's UVD2-based XvBA Finally Does Something On Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Finally, ATI Radeon customers under Linux 
| can use XvBA, but it is not through using 
| XvBA directly. AMD and Splitted Desktop 
| Systems have been collaborating to develop 
| xvba-video, which is an XvBA back-end for 
| VA-API. Splitted Desktop Systems is the 
| company that brought H.264 VA-API GPU video 
| acceleration for Gnash, VA-API support in 
| MPlayer and FFmpeg, and a NVIDIA VDPAU back-
| end for VA-API. 


VIA Keeps Trying For Kernel Inclusion Of Its DRM

,----[ Quote ]
| Last December the Linux folks at VIA 
| Technologies had released their Chrome 9 
| series DRM code, which is needed for Linux 
| 3D support with these newer-generation VIA 
| IGPs, but this initial version ended up 
| getting rejected from inclusion into the 
| mainline kernel on the basis of the rest of 
| VIA's 3D stack for the Chrome 9 being 
| closed-source and some problems with the 
| code itself. The situation was similar to 
| that of Intel's Poulsbo DRM being rejected 
| from reaching the mainline Linux kernel 
| earlier this year. 


Mesa 7.7 May Be A Christmas Present

,----[ Quote ]
| The Mesa 3D graphics library on Linux has 
| been moving along at a brisk pace lately 
| with a frequent stream of new releases as 
| many features arrive like new Gallium3D 
| state trackers, maturing of new hardware 
| support (particularly with the ATI Radeon 
| graphics), and new OpenGL extension support. 
| Mesa 7.6 was released in September, but now 
| Intel's lead OpenGL contributor, Ian 
| Romanick, has proposed a release schedule 
| for Mesa 7.7.


The State of State Trackers In Gallium3D

,----[ Quote ]
| While not very extensive, a bit more 
| information is also available on the X.Org 
| Wiki with regard to the status of Gallium3D. 
| We will have more information soon.



Kernel Log: What's coming in 2.6.30 - File systems: New and revamped file

,----[ Quote ]
| The patches adopted in Linux 2.6.30 introduce many significant changes
| affecting data security and Ext3 and Ext4 performance. Support for the EXOFS
| and NILFS2 file systems is new, as is the cache for the AFS and NFS network
| file systems. There are also a few fixes for the almost forgotten ReiserFS
| file system.


Intel Releases Set Of Linux GPU Tools

,----[ Quote ]
| Intel's Eric Anholt has announced the release of version 1.0.0 for the
| intel-gpu-tools package.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
