ILO Gallium3D Continues Marching To Its Own Beat

While it doesn't have the backing of Intel Corp, the ILO Gallium3D driver continues to advance on its own for bringing HD/Iris Graphics to Gallium3D as an alternative open-source driver to the i965 Mesa DRI driver.

Chia-I Wu at LunarG continues to be the main developer of ILO and for the most part is the driver's only developer. ILO Gallium3D is mostly used as a proving ground by LunarG when working on new Mesa/Gallium3D functionality, etc. ILO currently supports Broadwell graphics and that of older generations, however, at last check the ILO performance trailed the Mesa DRI driver.

If you haven't toyed with ILO in a while and are an Intel Linux user with some spare time on your hands this weekend, there's been a number of ILO changes in Git over the past few days. The changes to ILO over the past week is the first significant work on the driver since early May.
