xf86-video-ati X.Org Driver 6.13 RC2
Alex Deucher this morning put out the xf86-video-ati 6.12.6 point release, which isn't too interesting, but of greater interest he did put out a second release candidate for the forthcoming KMS-capable xf86-video-ati 6.13 DDX driver. There's already a lot to be found with this long-overdue and major xf86-video-ati 6.13 X.Org driver update, but added to this second release candidate (that's officially v6.12.192) is an ATI R600/700 GPU fix that should significantly improve the performance of EXA DFS acceleration.
Also making its way into this new release candidate is a new ATI RS880 PCI ID, I2C GPIO fixes, removing some leftover debugging output, and support for PAL on legacy IGP chipsets. The release announcement with the RC2 change-log can be found on the X.Org mailing list.
