A new 2.7 driver test release came less than a week ago, but tonight we have received the 2.7.0 final announcement from Carl Worth. The xf86-video-intel 2.7 driver has SDVO-TV support, basic SDVO-LVDS support, tear-free X-Video support, and various other DDX driver fixes. There are also improvements in this quarterly Intel driver update for DRI2, kernel mode-setting, and UXA (the UMA Acceleration Architecture).
The detailed xf86-video-intel 2.7.0 driver release announcement by Carl Worth can be found on the X.Org mailing list. Carl has done a nice job in this release announcement of detailing some of the most prominently fixed bugs, known issues, and more.
