  1. There won't be a new mesa release before the...

    There won't be a new mesa release before the freeze, so it's doubtful SKL enablement in it will get in jessie unless there's some exception granted. Also note that the kernel is already chosen to be...
  2. I mean, everyone is free to backport the devel...

    I mean, everyone is free to backport the devel series packages to the LTS via a ppa, it's not that hard. And we tend to get enough testing by the users of that devel series.. so when the backports...
  3. Since you mention open source drivers; what...

    Since you mention open source drivers; what exactly will be outdated?

    - latest Mesa will still be 10.3.x
    - 3.17 kernel should be out by then but it's trivial to install a mainline build if you...
  4. There are backport stacks provided, install...

    There are backport stacks provided, install 'xserver-xorg-lts-foo'.. though 14.04 doesn't have any available atm because 14.10 isn't out yet. But for 12.04 you have these, and the point releases use...
  5. Which is a beta release and you know it. Only...

    Which is a beta release and you know it. Only long-lived branches get in the archive, and 343 isn't one. 340 will be next, don't know what's blocking it.

    depends on oibaf, it's compatible with the main repo which is what counts..
  7. no fglrx, can't force people to switch to radeon...

    no fglrx, can't force people to switch to radeon and likely regress, on newer hw at least
  8. It's easier for Debian to switch from sysvinit,...

    It's easier for Debian to switch from sysvinit, but work done there doesn't necessarily help on Ubuntu which migrates from upstart.. a lot of upstart jobs need to be rewritten for systemd and so on....
  9. you'd want systemd-sysv for the init, it's not...

    you'd want systemd-sysv for the init, it's not going to be default in 14.10 as you can see from the list of packages that'll get removed if you try install it.. and it's still very much WIP
  10. no 3.16.x

    no

    3.16.x
  11. Less BS please. There are no "Wayland apps" or...

    Less BS please. There are no "Wayland apps" or "Mir apps", the support is in the toolkit (Qt, GTK+) and assuming apps use those they are fine running on both. Mir support for the toolkits are being...
  12. It doesn't matter on what distro version the...

    It doesn't matter on what distro version the mainline build was created, they still work the same on older releases. So v3.16.x-unicorn will work just fine on trusty and before.
  13. Right, my tone wasn't ideal.. I work for...

    Right, my tone wasn't ideal.. I work for Canonical on the Hardware Enablement team, and there are machines on the OEM pipeline with Broadwell that we're working on. Note that for radeon graphics I...
  14. Do you really think I'd ask something like...

    Do you really think I'd ask something like i915_bdw to be pulled in without testing it on (prerelease) BDW hw? Yes there are bugs but those are being worked on for .1, this had to go in now or it...
  15. the official image is just a download away, and...

    the official image is just a download away, and what you get from http://www.ubuntu.com/download are the latest point-releases, so .0 will be replaced with .1 as soon as it's available

    also,...

    wrong

    14.04.2 will have the kernel/xorg stack from 14.10 backported, 14.04.1 will just get all the stable release updates between .0 and .1, no new kernel version bump there
  17. The LTS dot releases where x > 1 use a backport...

    The LTS dot releases where x > 1 use a backport stack from LTS+N. So 12.04.2 image used the kernel+X from 12.10, 12.04.3 from 13.04, 12.04.4 from 13.10 and the final one 12.04.5 (Aug '14) will use...

    there never were any plans to use 3.14, the unstable branch is used for preparing the next release

    that said, 3.13.0-20.41 uploaded last night includes a separate i915_bdw driver for Broadwell,...

    No! As I already said on the other thread it was a mistaken upload which was soon removed from the -proposed repository.

    But of course it made the news already, and won't be corrected it seems.
  20. no it's not

    it was uploaded to the archive by mistake, should've gone to a ppa instead, and got removed from proposed soon after upload
