The xf86-video-intel 2.4.97 driver was released back in August as the first test-release for the 2.5.0 driver series. Some of the proposed changes for this quarterly update to Intel's open-source X.Org graphics driver include usable EXA support, GEM integration, kernel mode-setting support, video tearing fixes, and plenty of bug-fixes. It's been almost two months since this test driver was released, but Jesse Barnes has now pushed out the second and final test release for xf86-video-intel 2.5.

Version 2.4.98 of the xf86-video-intel driver includes many bug-fixes, support for RepeatPad and RepeatReflect, a GTT dumper for G4x debugging, UXA acceleration work, and plenty of other changes. Between the 2.4.97 and 2.4.98 releases are about 75 changes.

If all goes according to plan, Jesse hopes to release xf86-video-intel 2.5.0 on Monday. The change-log and source download links are available on the X.Org mailing list.
