NVIDIA Has Gallium3D Support In Fedora 13

,----[ Quote ]
| While it's exciting to have kernel mode-
| setting, RandR, and EXA / X-Video 
| acceleration for NVIDIA hardware in an open-
| source driver that is reliable since the 
| mainlining of its DRM code and its adoption 
| in Ubuntu 10.04 and other distributions, 
| Fedora has already employed Nouveau support 
| to various extents in their recent releases. 


- From the âfreaking awesomeâ department â 3D support on nouveau

| Thatâs Spring. Whatâs Spring? Well, itâs a 
| fairly neat open source RTS framework that 
| started out as a Total Annihilation clone, 
| but more to the point, itâs a pretty complex 
| 3D game. Whatâs cool about the picture? 
| Well, itâs in the renderer info in the 
| console (which you probably canât quite make 
| out, never mind). Yup, thatâs Springârunning 
| on Nouveau!


X Server 1.8 Release Candidate Is Here

,----[ Quote ]
| Keith Packard has just made available the 
| first release candidate of X Server 1.8 and 
| confirms that its release schedule is still 
| on track. Snapshots and the Git code for X 
| Server 1.8 go back to last year, but with a 
| planned release by the end of March, Keith 
| has now started working on release 
| candidates. 



Fedora 13 Features Preview

,----[ Quote ]
| Goddard is the codename for the latest
| version of the bleeding edge Linux
| distribution, Fedora 13. Eve before the
| release of Fedora 12 there were new feature
| plans for Fedora 13. New features continue
| to be added to the feature plans of Fedora
| 13 scheduled for a planned release on May
| 11, 2010. The Fedora 13 feature list
| includes a number of features that didn't
| make it in time for Fedora 12. The feature
| list includes NFSv4 protocol by default,
| support for mounting NFS servers over IPv6,
| and yum language package plug-in. It's
| almost time for Fedora 13 feature freeze
| and we hardly expect any new last minute
| additions. With most accepted Fedora 13
| features highlighted on Fedora Project Wiki
| we decided to provide a comprehensive
| preview of the Linux distribution.
| [...]
| Fedora 13 would offer enhanced support for
| DisplayPort in X and kernel drivers for
| NVIDIA hardware. DisplayPort offers a
| higher link bandwidth than dual-link DVI.
| Monitors can easily take advantage of this
| by providing higher resolutions, higher
| color depths, and higher refresh rates. The
| DisplayPort will also run at a lower
| voltage than DVI and LVDS, and uses lesser
| power. The future laptops will likely
| switch to embedded DisplayPort for the
| local panel for this reason. With this
| feature, Fedora users can take advantage of
| the the technical superiority of
| DisplayPort.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
