    i'd really like to see nfc take off.
    could be the future of sharing files locally with mobile devices

      While nvc1 nouveau started to work under 3.1 it suprisingly sucks so much(For example my GT420M on nouveau runs HoN at ~0.2 FPS while I've been playing the game back in the days on my old radeon Xpress 1150 on gallium) I'm back again to proprietary. Hope either proprietaries get better at xrandr and will let me relog/restartX or switch monitor safely on my fermi or acceleration on nouveau gets better for my gpu. Anyway FUC for fermies works now and its good news.

        Others reports

        If you speak French, you can read the usual report here : https://linuxfr.org/news/sortie-du-noyau-linux%C2%A031
        It's the best articles I've found on the topic, with sometimes an interview of a kernel hacker
        Kernelnewbies changelog sum-up is also interesting : http://kernelnewbies.org/LinuxChanges

          bad patch for 3.1

          This needs to be confirmed, but i think the official patches for 3.1 are buggy: they do not have the actual content of the (new) files Documentation/DocBook/v4l/*.pdf
          That is, if you download linux-3.0 and apply the 3.1 patch, you wont have those files, while they are in the linux-3.1.

              I really hate when they don't post the full changelog from the previous official release.

                    Nvc1 and nvd9 aren't supported by Nouveau. You didn't have hw acceleration, that's why you had terrible performance.

                      Is there a Nouveau equivalent to http://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonProgram ? If not is 3D still not far enough along yet to bother?

                        FUC

                        I guess the appropriate way to write it is FuC where u stands for Greek letter μ (international symbol for micro)
                        So, for abbreviating Fermi Micro Code either you write FμC or FuC.

                        I know FUC and "FUC'ed" sound more hilarious, but it's misleading.
