X Server 1.9 Window Closing After RandR 1.4 Pull

,----[ Quote ]
| There's good news for the Ubuntu camp and 
| others releasing in the September-October 
| time-frame: development work on X.Org 
| Server 1.9 is still going as planned for 
| an August release and its merge window is 
| about to be closed. In the past it's been 
| tough for the X.Org project to release 
| server updates in a timely manner that's 
| on schedule, but continuing from their 
| X.Org Server 1.8 success, 1.9 is shaping 
| up nicely too. 


ATI R500 Gallium3D Performance In June 2010


Gallium3D Support For Stream Out Arrives

,----[ Quote ]
| On the same-day as publishing new 
| Gallium3D benchmarks of the ATI R300g 
| driver, we have more Gallium3D news to 
| share. Zack Rusin has just announced a new 
| Gallium3D branch that provides support for 
| "Stream Out" with this advanced graphics 
| driver architecture. 


[Mesa-dev] RFC: r300 compiler loop emulation

,----[ Quote ]
| Right now, this is only enabled for 
| fragment shaders, but I am working on
| enabling it for vertex shaders.


Closing the xserver 1.9 merge window 

,----[ Quote ]
| Ok, so I was supposed to do this last 
| Friday, but I wanted to get 'a few more 
| patches' merged in before closing things 
| down. And, some of those patches were more 
| of an adventure in merging than others. 
| I'm hoping the devPrivates adventure will 
| be resolved this week; as expected, many 
| bugs were found after that code landed and 
| I'm grateful to those of you who helped 
| find and fix them quickly.
| [...]
| Beyond that, I'd like for people to 
| consider the tree closed to large-scale 
| changes as we prepare for the 1.9 release. 
| There are a couple of additional cleanup 
| patch sequences floating around and I 
| think we should plan on leaving those for 
| 1.10 unless they fix actual bugs.



Open ATI R600/700 Driver Gains Tiling Support

,----[ Quote ]
| For those of you not interested in today's ATI
| Catalyst 10.5 for Linux driver, if you pull
| the very latest open-source ATI Radeon Linux
| graphics driver stack there is now tiling
| support for the R600/700 (Radeon HD
| 2000/3000/4000 series) graphics processors.


ATI Catalyst 10.5 Comes with Support for SLED/SLES 11 SP1

,----[ Quote ]
| The latest ATI graphics drivers are here to
| satisfy the needs of the Linux gamers out
| there. ATI Catalyst 10.5 comes with
| preliminary support for SUSE Linux Enterprise
| Desktop and Server 11 Service Pack 1. It also
| fixes quite a lot of Linux-specific issues and
| bugs. Other than that, itâs just a regular
| evolutionary update, nothing to write home
| about.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
