The Intel X.Org 2.8 driver
was released last month, but now those developers working on this DDX driver have issued their first point release for this quarterly driver update. The xf86-video-intel 2.8.1 driver brings seven fixes to this Intel graphics processor driver, while all new features and other work are going into what will eventually become xf86-video-intel 2.9 later this year.
The xf86-video-intel 2.8.1 driver has fixes for using transformations in a KMS environment, alignment corrections for tiled pixmaps heights and untiled pixmaps, a new EDID property blob, align DRI2 tiled pixmaps to the DRI2 tiled pixmap alignment requirement, a fix for the DVO timing, and fix sampler indexes on i965 planar video.
