Back in September the Intel Open-Source Technology Center developers had released the xf86-video-intel 2.9.0 driver as their quarterly update, but unlike previous updates that brought KMS, GEM, UXA, and other new features, the 2.9 release wound up just being a major bug-fix release. Providing further fixes, the xf86-video-intel 2.9.1 driver was released over the night.

The xf86-video-intel 2.9.1 driver addresses corruption and artifacts due to wrong colors in the colormap with X server 1.7, incorrect rendering (such as missing scrollbar arrows in some themes), black screen when X server is reset, and regressions detecting DVI monitors. That's it.

The release announcement with source download links for the Intel 2.9.1 X.Org driver can be found on the xorg-announce list.
