AMD Catalyst 9.12 For Linux Released

,----[ Quote ]
| AMD has today delivered their last proprietary 
| Linux driver update for the year, Catalyst 
| 9.12. However, if you were hoping Catalyst 
| 9.12 would deliver on some of your holiday 
| wishes, guess again. There still is no pure, 
| usable XvBA support besides using the VA-API 
| to XvBA wrapper and the Catalyst 9.12 driver 
| just doesn't bring much. There is though one 
| small addition and that is a few options have 
| been added to the AMD Catalyst Control Center 
| Linux Edition. 


The xorg.conf.d Patches Emerge

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the features being worked on for X 
| Server 1.8 is the removal of HAL support. The 
| FreeDesktop.org Hardware Abstraction Layer 
| project is nice in that is multi-platform, but 
| the HAL project has largely been abandoned and 
| is being replaced by UDisks and similar 
| projects. 



ALSA 1.0.22 Released With Plenty Of Changes

,----[ Quote ]
| There are plenty of changes with ALSA 1.0.22 but among
| them are continued work on the CMI8788 Oxygen APU, a few
| fixes for the Creative X-Fi sound card support that was
| introduced this year, numerous improvements to the HDA and
| HDA Intel drivers, and countless
| improvements to other Linux kernel audio drivers and codecs.


Radeon HDMI Audio Set For Linux 2.6.33 Kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| We still may see power management patches
| for the ATI kernel driver arrive in time
| for 2.6.33, but being called for a pull
| into the mainline kernel this morning is
| the long-awaited HDMI audio support for
| the ATI kernel mode-setting driver. HDMI
| audio support for ATI Radeon graphics
| cards used to be the unique advantage for
| the RadeonHD driver, but it's been ported
| to the DRM driver and will be supported
| under Linux 2.6.33.


Nouveau Makes Its Own NV40 Firmware Replacement

,----[ Quote ]
| Since last week the DRM code for the
| Nouveau driver has been in the mainline
| kernel code-base for its official debut
| with the Linux 2.6.33 kernel.


Radeon DRM Power Management Moves Along

,----[ Quote ]
| This in-kernel power management code is
| working with more (older) Radeon graphics
| processors and offers various other
| improvements compared to earlier
| revisions.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
