ATI X.Org Driver Gains Embedded DisplayPort

,----[ Quote ]
| AMD's Alex Deucher has just committed initial 
| support for Embedded DisplayPort (eDP) 
| connectors/monitors to the xf86-video-ati DDX 
| display driver. Traditional DisplayPort 
| monitors are already supported by this open-
| source ATI driver, but now Embedded 
| DisplayPort connectors should begin to work as 
| well. Here is the Git commit that provides the 
| initial support.


DMX2 Bits For X.Org Server To Move Forward

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in 2008, Novell's David Reveman published 
| his own branch of the Distributed Multi-head X 
| (DMX) server which he called dmx-2 as it was 
| close to a complete rewrite of the original 
| DMX implementation. David's DMX-2 branch was 
| less complex but provided a greater set of 
| features, including X-Video, RandR 1.2, and 
| Composite support in a DMX environment, D-Bus 
| configuration, and many other changes. This 
| branch was never merged to master, but now Red 
| Hat's Adam Jackson is looking at merging some 
| of the DMX-2 to work into the mainline X 
| Server. 



Linux 2.6.33-rc3

,----[ Quote ]
| It's been quiet due to the holidays, so -rc3
| is reasonably small despite  being a few days
| over the normal one-week mark. And most of the
| changes  are pretty trivial, although both
| ext4 and reiserfs had some trouble in  -rc2,
| hopefully all fixed now.
