    I'm sure it'll get into jaunty when they release 2.7, they've been keeping up pretty well compared to debian and are at 2.6.3 right now. There's major problems with -intel in jaunty going by the bug tracker that I'm sure they want to fix

      I'm going to buy an mini-ITX board with an Intel 4500HD IGP soon, and wonder if this driver performs well (enough) with that chip? I have an Eee901 with the 950 IGP, and I'm fairly satisfied and look forward to use this new version, but stuff like GLSL doesn't work yet. How much work is still required, or is that purely a Gallium thing? Will an 4500HD ultimately be able to handle id-Tech 4 type engines? Sorry if this is OT... It seems Intel is mostly focusing on 9xx, since 4500 isn't mentioned that much..?

        Someone needs to do some benchmark. I went back to 2.6.* from the jaunty release and quickly became impatient enough to switch back. I suggest checking out the xorg-edgers ppa and enabling UXA. Find out how big enormous for yourself

          I don't care about tearing in Xv. I care about tearing in DRI2/UXA. Has anyone gotten 3D apps (including Compiz) under DRI2 to not tear?
