Libdrm 2.4.59 Brings Skylake & Tegra Support
The libdrm 2.4.59 release adds Intel Skylake "Gen9" graphics support, enables Freedreno support by default on ARM, and adds NVIDIA Tegra support for the open-source driver.
The Intel Skylake libdrm support goes along with the Skylake enablement now in Mesa Git and the Linux 3.19 kernel for getting ready this Broadwell successor due out at the end of 2015 at the earliest. Freedreno by default on ARM comes now that the MSM DRM driver is in good shape for supporting the Qualcomm Adreno hardware while optionally disabling the Qualcomm KGSL kernel driver support. The Tegra libdrm support is for the open-source NVIDIA Tegra graphics driver being worked on in Mesa with support from NVIDIA Corp.
The full list of libdrm 2.4.59 changes can be found via the mailing list announcement.
