    I think that Marek was less concerned with passing the blame and more about the approach to resolving problems.

    I don't think that checking the renderer string is the correct thing to do, but I also don't know any other way.

    It's also quite amazing that the Intel devs broke one of the most important linux apps out there in a point release without even checking whether it works. The solution is to downgrade the driver and use the old one until the issue is resolved, and that's quite pointless.

    A simple regression test would have given everyone enough time to find the problem and resolve it.

    I'm really on Intel's side here. Both changes are improvements, having the 20090101 date in there forever isn't really informative.

    Why the heck do they parse direct rendering from the name anyway, it would take five minutes to look at how glxinfo checks for it.

    Oh right, so now it's the kwin developers' fault that the free graphics driver developers fucked up once again?

    From his post:

    Still I could talk to them now instead of writing angry blog posts? Sadly I cannot. First of all we were notified about the change too late to do anything. As just explained we were notified after 4.6.2 and no chance to adjust before Natty. Furthermore I was ill last week, are sitting in a plane to the US right now, so I can write blog posts but cannot use Internet and I will stay more or less disconnected throughout the next week.
