    Phoronix: Intel Releases xf86-video-intel 2.8 RC Driver

    In preparation for Intel's quarterly DDX driver update, Carl Worth has announced the first release candidate of the xf86-video-intel 2.8 driver. This driver is significant in that it completely abolishes DRI1 and EXA support in favor of only supporting DRI2 and UXA, respectively.The UMA Acceleration Architecture is derived from EXA and was supposed to be merged back into EXA, but that didn't end up happening...

    I hope they manage to fix the XVideo tearing which I am seeing on a 945 with xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.7.0-7.fc11. Option "XvPreferOverlay" doesn't seem to work, either.

      From 2.7 to 2.8rc there is a big difference, almost everything works now.

        Sounds good. I hope it makes it through the Fedora distribution pipeline soon.

          Note that Intel has also tagged 2009Q2RC1 in the mesa 7.5 branch. Seems this driver will use mesa 7.5 when it's released as stable.

              It's almost working, but I have random freezes in 865G http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22483
