I know that its not up to you neither tim to decide what gets released and i am not putting the blame on you, him or any of the mesa guys. But the result is what matters.
And of course you can keep working on whatever you like.
The hell with all of you. These are mostly pretty good points. I dunno how relevant would the update to OpenGL3.2+ be but the rest I'm pretty content with.
It doesn't necessarily mean that you're on a bad mood just because you're bringing up some missing anticipated features in such an important component. Also I wonder who the _hell_ did think that Mesa 9.0 was somehow disappointing up until now. You dumb f*cks.
And no, I'm not in a bad mood myself. Just disappointed in the stupidity that I keep seeing down here. Might even quote that idiot from the other thread:
F*ck you in the biggest way.

I got a lot of flak from readers here when I said we were even *working* on UVD and advanced PM, because they understood there would need to be a lot of internal work before we would have anything to show for it and a good chance we would end up having to toss some work and start over a couple of times along the way.
It seems somehow wrong to attack us for spending time on difficult areas that are not likely to show immediate results *and* to attack us for not having results in those areas yet.
If you're just saying "I wish it were easier" I sure wouldn't disagree with that
And the "attack" is not to the people doing the hard work. Its to those people that said no after all the work.
It's not rumour -- I posted about it here a couple of times.
This is the same process we did for almost everything else -- we need to write some working code first to figure out what programming info is "must have" for the initial release, then we start working through each part of the programming info to either get approval to release it or find a way to make a good driver without it.
We knew UVD would be tough and explicitly carved it out of our initial plans & announcement but advanced PM turned out to be a *lot* harder to release than I initially expected.
