A Video To Show Off X.Org's Multi-Touch Support

,----[ Quote ]
| As a result of the MPX support in the mainline 
| X.Org Server, the Interactive Computing Lab has 
| produced a new video to show off this support 
| as they had informed us this morning. In the 
| video (below) they are using Fedora 12 with its 
| X Server 1.7 and Linux 2.6.31 kernel. 


R600 Open-Source Driver WIth GLSL, OpenGL 2.0

,----[ Quote ]
| AMD's Richard Li recently introduced a commit 
| that enables GL2 and there has been other 
| AMD/ATI 3D work going on too. The Radeon 
| Feature Matrix has also been updated to reflect 
| the GLSL support now being mostly done for the 
| ATI Radeon HD 2000/3000/4000 series and its 
| OpenGL 2.0 compatibility. 



So the merge window is closed, and -rc1 is out there now.

| Talking about the merge window: there were a
| _lot_ of trees that left their pull requests
| pretty dang late. Not everything I merged
| yesterday and today were late pull requests,
| but a lot of it was. I'm used to have a
| fairly busy last day of the merge window, but
| it was a busy last two days  this time -
| definitely worse than usual.


Kernel Log: New stable kernels, 2.6.33 with DRBD and RT2800PCI

,----[ Quote ]
| Kernel versions, and
| offer minor improvements and correct
| several bugs â including one security hole.
| Torvalds has already incorporated more than
| 5,000 changes for Linux 2.6.33. Its merge
| window will probably be open for just over
| another week. Various developers are working
| on significant improvements to the open source
| Radeon graphics drivers.


A Great Present In The Linux 2.6.33 Kernel

,----[ Quote ]
| David Airlie has just called upon Linus
| Torvalds to pull in the latest DRM patches
| for inclusion into the Linux 2.6.33 kernel.
| The Direct Rendering Manager improvements in
| this next kernel release will be
| particularly interesting and are perhaps as
| significant as earlier kernels that had
| introduced kernel mode-setting support for
| Intel and ATI/AMD hardware along with in-
| kernel memory management. The changes that
| the Linux 2.6.33 kernel will bring are
| aplenty and will impact almost all of those
| using an open-source graphics driver stack.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
