    Radeonsi has bigger problems than OpenGL > 3.1, like 2D acceleration.

    Thumbs up

    I'm a r600g user but kudos to the Nouveau devs for getting to OGL 3.2 support so quickly. Hope they can sort out the Piglit, performance and power issues to give a good open-source alternative to the binary blob.

    I am disheartened that basically all freelance devs and Red Hat employees effectively flying blind make such a good driver as nouveau, while AMD still isn't at opengl 3.2 with 6 full time devs. And even Intel has a full dev team and is only a version past that! (yeah I know nouveau cards still can't reclock, but I'm sure if they had 1 paid Nvidia employee working on it who had the insider knowledge they could have it working in weeks).

    I think though a lot of this is a testiment to how gallium3d works well - also consider the freedreno driver. They both have very low, especially commercial, manpower, but and holding their own just from the infrastructure that was made to support them. Which I do recognize owes a lot of credence to AMD and VMWare.

    but, rhis list unlike last year, sure looks promising. also, having insider would kinda defeat reason for OSS drivers. the docs NVidia gave are fair game, rest it is not.
