    HDMI audio is implemented (Alex finished a first pass last year), we're just having a heck of a time figuring out if we can release it.

    Right now the priorities are SI support, OpenCL and figuring out if we can release some kind of UVD support.

    Heck yea, I'll add a #9: Doesn't make me a sandwich..

    It's the right of any user to ask for anything they want.. Whether they get it is a different story..

    When developers make software catered around things the developers want, rather than what the users want, you have a platform that will have only developers as users.

    Fedora 16 has a libtxc_dxtn package available in the official repos. Not sure if it's a matter of just installing it and things magically work though...

    Edit: yup!! Just installing it (no reboot or anything) fixed WorldWind which used to fail drawing the textures on the globe due to a S3TC error!

    I wonder when we'll see the "Eight Shortcomings of PTS" article. It's so easy to pick a random missing feature and complain about it. Here, let me give you five to get you started:
    1. Other operating systems (Windows, ReactOS, AROS, Haiku, Android, Tizen, ...) still not fully supported since some or all benchmark profiles don't work.
    2. SVG still not fully supported. That's 11 years late.
    3. Missing networking Benchmarks.
    4. It's still not reporting a 3DMark score due to legal/copyright issues. Honestly, that's inexcusable, and I won't accept workarounds.
    5. Missing Hardware support. Still can't benchmark smartphones or game consoles.



    Well, on a more positive note, if the complaints boil down to "still not quite the proprietary drivers", then I guess it's all good.

    He said MLAA, and that page does list it as mostly working.

    switchable GPU support.

    Since Nvidia has totally messed up their Linux support with their "Optimus" crap, a working solution to use discreet GPU on "muxless" configuration is highly needed.

    r300g & r600g still reports no MSAA on this page here: http://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature



    Is the page wrong?

    Because that would be my #8 and it's a big one for me..
