Experimental ATI Driver Gets DRI2 Support
It's been a while since Jerome Glisse last had any major announcements to share, but today he's announcing that he is in the progress of bringing DRI2 (Direct Rendering Infrastructure 2) to the open-source Radeon driver.
This DRI2 support that improves direct rendering support is currently in branches when checking out a GEM-ified DRM, a GEM version of the xf86-video-ati DDX driver with command stream submission support, and a command stream submission version of Mesa.
If you're interested in checking out this initial DRI2 support for those with ATI Radeon hardware using the open-source driver, checkout Jerome's blog post with the git information.
