Phoronix: Intel 3.0 X.Org Driver Still Baking, New Development Release
Chris Wilson announced the release this morning of the xf86-video-intel 2.99.913 driver as the latest development version in the nearly year-long process of releasing xf86-video-intel 3.0...
I can't help but think there should have been at least one stable release by now, perhaps without all the new features.
It's already well past the point where improvements for most people outweigh any remaining regressions, and the situation where major distros have already shipped 2.99.x on stable releases is a bit silly.
for people who still run gen4 intel gfx (thinkpad t400 etc) ... is it true that the 'official' video aceleration api lies about providing h264 support and you have to use this one:
Not worth it IMO, after using it for a while - which would be why it was never released in the main driver.
