Intel's Official Sandy Bridge DDX Nears

Intel's Carl Worth has just announced the xf86-video-intel 2.13.903 driver release. He hopes this DDX release candidate will be the last before the xf86-video-intel 2.14.0 driver is officially released carrying the proper X.Org driver support for their new Sandy Bridge CPUs.

This release candidate provides interlace and DRI2 computation fixes, DRI fixes, and various other minor changes. This quarterly update to their X.Org driver isn't particularly exciting since most of the interesting work goes into the DRM/KMS Intel driver within the Linux kernel, but it's the 2.14 release that's designed to provide the official support for the Sandy Bridge graphics, which we've been talking about a lot in recent days. It also looks like Intel has now decided to supply Phoronix with Sandy Bridge CPUs for graphics testing shortly, with other journalists falling short in being able to leverage the Git components.

This release candidate announcement can be found on the Intel mailing list. Mesa 7.10 and the Linux 2.6.37 kernels will also be released in the coming days, which are the other bits preferred for Sandy Bridge support.
