    Phoronix: xf86-video-ati 6.13.0 X.Org Driver Released

    It's been over a year since the last major release of the ATI X.Org driver, xf86-video-ati 6.12.0, but today the xf86-video-ati 6.13.0 driver has finally replaced this open-source ATI graphics driver...

    HDMI support?

    Any word on when HDMI support will be released for R700? A developer was working on it, but I'm curious as to when it might be released and packaged.

      Man, I hope it's not too late to get this into Lucid.

        AFAIK Lucid has been picking up the WIP 6.13 code on a regular basis for a while, so it would just be a question of picking up the last few fixes.

          It is really interesting that lucid is the primary target for final releases now. For 10-4 fglrx and even for the oss driver Ubuntu is privileged, Fedora (and others) only got git snapshots for long time - even when a dev works for Red Hat.

            Huh ? The only connection to Lucid AFAIK was that geoffp asked about it getting into Lucid. A lot of distros release at this time of year.

              Yeah; if anything this is timed better for Fedora 13 than it is for Lucid, since Lucid is about a week from final freeze while final freeze is still a month off for Fedora. I doubt that it was specifically targeted to any distro's release cycle, though. I would expect that the main concern is that the relevant ioctls are mostly frozen and in mainline before making a "real" release.

                  HDMI support works fine if you use kernel >=2.6.34-rc3-git1.

                  I've tested it on my rv730.
