A Horde Of X.Org Drivers Get Updated
In time for the holidays and the forthcoming release of X Server 1.6 next month, a horde of X.Org driver updates were released. David Airlie has announced new versions of xf86-video-trident, xf86-video-apm, xf86-video-ast, xf86-video-chips, xf86-video-glint, xf86-video-neomagic, xf86-video-sis, xf86-video-tseng, xf86-video-tdfx, xf86-video-s3, xf86-video-ark, and xf86-video-s3virge. Peter Hutterer announced a new version of xf86-input-vmmouse.
There aren't many changes to these less popular drivers besides removing dead code, supporting new ASICs, making ISA optional, and various bug-fixes. The release announcement and source download links for these new drivers can be found on the X.Org mailing list.
