    I think that fits the definition of MOSTLY ("working but with bugs", implying "more and/or more serious bugs than the rest of the code"), doesn't it ?

    Are you suggesting that the definition for MOSTLY should also include "enabled by default in master" rather than the unwritten "in master" rule used today ? I'm not necessarily disagreeing, just asking.

    What's the status of r300g Hyper-Z? In the wiki is marked as MOSTLY (gallium), however it's disabled by default and when forcing it with RADEON_HYPERZ=1 it shows random patches in sauerbraten and other games (this is with my RV530, mesa from git, kernel 2.6.36).

    Not to the same extent. The r5xx family was the first to have the Avivo display pipe (significantly different programming from 4xx, no TV-out functionality in the overlay etc..) and it introduced a new fragment shader instruction set.

    There are differences between 6xx/7xx but they are smaller by comparison. We also implemented support for the two generations at the same time and mostly in the same code, which makes their level of support more likely to track.

    Isn't it the same case for R400/R500?

    Concerning MSAA, it's been implemented in r300g but no work has been done for it in the Mesa core so it's completely untested. There are two missing parts:
    - EXT_framebuffer_multisample: MSAA through this extension should be easy to implement.
    - Multisampled front and back buffers: No idea what needs to be done here.

    The main problem here IMO is that we don't really have agreement on exactly where the line is between "MOSTLY" and "DONE". My guess is that the move to "DONE" will happen when 600g becomes default in master.

    MSAA still wip, but I don't think anybody is working on it. Why not Mostly, btw?
    Mostly implies generally available and working in master, albeit with bugs. I didn't think MSAA was at that point yet, is it ?

    IIRC Colour Tiling is DONE but Texture Tiling is still WIP. Not 100% sure though...

    Hey, I can fix that one

    Bridgman beat me to it, as usual. :P

    These came to mind but I might be wrong on any/all of them.

    It's missing the new Northern Islands family. I'm adding it now

    EDIT - done... I ended up combining the 6xx and 7xx columns since the two families pretty much always have the same features.

    The choice between TODO and WIP was pretty arbitrary.
