    Phoronix: Graphics Driver Changes Coming In The Linux 3.18 Kernel

    While the Linux 3.17 kernel isn't being released for a few weeks, we already have a good idea for the DRM graphics driver improvements coming for the Linux 3.18 cycle...

    I wonder if 3.17 will make it into ubuntu 14.10. There's a rather improtant radeonSI fix in it.

      No, only 3.16.

        According to Micheal, no... but I wouldn't be surprised if Ubuntu back-ported that (and a few other) fixes into 3.16 for use in 14.10 though. That seems to be what they do most of the time instead of just using the new kernel *shrug*
