VMware's Embedded Plans For Gallium3D?

,----[ Quote ]
| This separation of Gallium3D then makes it 
| possible for one to just create a "mean and 
| lean" implementation as Josà describes it 
| in the mailing list announcement, an 
| implementation with Gallium3D interfaces 
| and auxiliary modules but no OS 
| abstractions (for embedded platforms), and 
| then the "everything" mix that is 
| effectively Gallium3D now with all code 
| enabled and is what's used on Linux and 
| Windows. 


AMD Toying With XvMC In Gallium3D R300 Driver

,----[ Quote ]
| XvMC support came to Gallium3D through a 
| Google Summer of Code project for 2008 that 
| involved getting X-Video Motion 
| Compensation running atop the Nouveau 
| driver with NVIDIA hardware.


A Nouveau 3D Driver That Works For Old NVIDIA Hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| This afternoon, however, a new Mesa DRI 
| driver has emerged for Nouveau that 
| provides *working* 3D support for older 
| NVIDIA hardware. 


Ubuntu Has Another Special ATI Catalyst Driver?

,----[ Quote ]
| The past three releases of Ubuntu Linux 
| have included unreleased ATI Catalyst 
| drivers. It started with Ubuntu 8.10, which 
| got an early-access driver as the official 
| Catalyst Linux driver that was available to 
| the public at the time had not supported X 
| Server 1.5. With Ubuntu 9.04, AMD was 
| running behind at supporting X Server 1.6 
| as found in the Jaunty Jackalope, so it too 
| received an early ATI driver. 



X Server 1.7.4 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Version 1.7.4 of the X.Org Server has been
| released this morning. This point release
| continues to bring new bug-fixes to the X
| Server 1.7 series branch since its release
| last year. All major development work
| continues to be focused on X Server 1.8,
| which is expected for release in March.


X Server 1.8 Snapshot 2 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| With there being just more than three months
| left until the planned release of X Server
| 1.8, Keith Packard has just issued the second
| snapshot for those interested in trying out
| this developmental X.Org server. The first X
| Server 1.8 snapshot came two months ago, but
| this second snapshot is arriving later than
| expected after having to deal with some bugs.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
