The community-based OpenChrome project has shipped their xf86-video-openchrome 0.3.2 DDX.

The OpenChrome 0.3.2 DDX driver isn't too exciting for Linux X.Org users but it does bring EXA 2D acceleration fixes where compositing can now be enabled again, TV-Out fixes, fixed memory detection, fixes for X.Org Server 1.14, and various other fixes.

More details on the OpenChrome 0.3.2 driver can be found via the release announcement.

Meanwhile, James Simmons continues to do great work on the VIA KMS driver.
