The xf86-video-intel 2.21.3 X.Org driver update is now available with a couple of bug-fixes.

Chris Wilson has done another good job keeping the Intel X.Org driver vigorously updated and continues to be the sole developer driving much of this DDX driver's development with bug-fixes and new features.

Fixed up for xf86-video-intel 2.21.3 is tracking of DRI pixmaps and backing buffer objects across re-parenting, restoring the "Gen4" workarounds for flickering rendering, double checking the device has KMS support enabled before claiming the device, and fixing the UXA render programs for projective transformations on Ivy Bridge.

All of the latest xf86-video-intel code can be fetched from their Git repository.
