188.8.131.52 (2.6 RC2) driver. This latest open-source Intel driver depends upon libdrm 2.4.3 while introducing improvements for kernel mode-setting
, and various other fixes. This driver will also now automatically build with support for kernel mode-setting if the X Server is new enough.

. The final release of xf86-video-intel 2.6.0 should be out this quarter permitting no last minute delays.
