Kernel Log: Coming in 2.6.32 (Part 3) - Storage

,----[ Quote ]
| The kernel development team have enhanced 
| various aspects of Btrfs, one effect of 
| which is to significantly improve the 
| experimental file system's write 
| performance. A number of changes to the 
| block layer promise better data throughputs 
| and reactivity. There are also several new 
| drivers for storage hardware.


A Northwest Nobel option?

| That list of Linux-related or -inspired 
| developments is only partial. Here in the 
| Northwest, for example, we could add the 
| Free Geek operations in Portland, which do 
| a lot of good for not only the low-income 
| people and non-profit groups they are 
| specifically aimed to help, but also almost 
| everyone who comes into contact with them. 
| The effects though have been world-wide, 
| and are accelerating. And could grow faster 
| with a little more attention.


libvdpau, libva Both Updated Today

,----[ Quote ]
| In hopes of pushing VDPAU beyond just being 
| a NVIDIA Unix driver technology and to make 
| it an open standard for Linux video driver 
| developers wishing to provide HD video 
| acceleration on Linux via the GPU, NVIDIA 
| released a standalone VDPAU library back in 
| September and have been trying to push some 
| VDPAU bits for DRI2. 


[ANNOUNCE] xorg-server

,----[ Quote ]
| As with RC1, there's nothing overly 
| exciting about this release, just a bunch 
| of fixes all over, with XQuartz having a 
| largest batch of changes. 1.7.2 is 
| scheduled for next friday, so please only 
| nominate crucial fixes now.


A New Patch For Radeon DRM Power Savings

,----[ Quote ]
| When it comes to the open-source ATI power 
| management efforts, Red Hat's Matthew 
| Garrett has been working on dynamic down-
| clocking through AtomBIOS, dynamic clocks 
| support was added to the ATI driver for 
| R500+ GPUs to support dynamic clock-gating 
| and static power management, force low 
| power mode options, and various other 
| techniques are being worked on to conserve 
| power like frame-buffer compression, 
| shutting down PLLs, LVDS re-clocking, and 
| more. 



Linux 2.6.32-rc8


Kernel 2.6.32 for Debian Squeeze

,----[ Quote ]
| The entire Debian kernel team assembled for a
| four day meeting at the annual Linux Plumbers
| Conference in Portland, Oregon, to set out the
| key features for the forthcoming version 6.0
| (codename Squeeze) of the open source Linux
| distribution. As long as kernel development is
| not delayed, the Debian development team plan
| to use version 2.6.32 for the first release of
| Squeeze.
