It's been about three months since the xf86-video-intel 2.3.0 driver was released and today they have now issued their next quarterly update. Version 2.4.0 of this Intel X.Org graphics driver brings GMA 4-Series support (including their new flagship X4500 IGP), improved i965 EXA Render performance, integrated HDMI support, and SDVO-HDMI support. In addition, there are many more minor fixes and changes, which are detailed in the xf86-video-intel 2.4.0 release announcement. At Phoronix we shared last month that this new driver update would be available in July.
