Pipelight Now Supports AMD GPU Acceleration By Default
Pipelight is the interesting open-source project to support Windows browser plug-ins within native Linux browsers. Pipelight serves as a wrapper for Windows plug-ins in Linux browsers using Wine and for browsers supporting NPAPI plug-ins. This software, which allows Silverlight and Netflix to work on Linux, is out with a big update.
For those using Pipelight to use Netflix on Linux or happen to be dependent upon a site using Microsoft Silverlight, Pipelight 0.2.7 is an interesting upgrade. Pipelight 0.2.7 most notably enables GPU acceleration by default for AMD graphics cards. There's also a new tool for checking the system configuration for issues, a fix for the Unity Web Player, updated plug-in support, and other changes.
The Pipelight 0.2.7 change-log can be found at BitBucket.org while more information on Pipelight is available from Pipelight.net along with download links.
