Intel Updates Its X.Org Driver Again
Just over a week ago Intel had come out with the xf86-video-intel 2.6.2 driver, but today that is already being replaced with xf86-video-intel 2.6.3. The 2.6.2 release was significant in that it presented some major fixes to the Graphics Execution Manager and kernel mode-setting. Along with that, Textured Video support when using kernel mode-setting was introduced along with rotation support.
Now though xf86-video-intel 2.6.3 is out with two regression fixes. One bug broke initialization with the UXA acceleration architecture when the driver was running in DRI1 mode. The other bug caused pixmap allocation on the i915 to consume large amounts of memory. Both bugs have been fixed and the 2.6.3 release has been tagged.
The release announcement and source download links can be found on the X.Org mailing list.
