Intel GLAMOR Gains X-Video Support

The xf86-video-intel DDX driver had a brown paper bag update on Saturday.

This morning I wrote about an updated Intel X.Org driver that provided several bug-fixes to the DDX code. Less than 24 hours later, another xf86-video-intel update is now available.

This quick update is to fix overeager discarding of CPU damage. Additionally though this latest DDX update includes GLAMOR X-Video support so that you can use this basic Xv form of video acceleration while using GLAMOR acceleration that normally provides 2D over OpenGL.

X-Video support within GLAMOR was recently done and is part of the latest GLAMOR 0.6 library release while new GLAMOR development is happening within the X.Org Server.

More details on this xf86-video-intel 2.99.909 driver snapshot can be found via its Git tag.
