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
, 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
