The DRM Graphics Driver Changes For Linux 3.14
Among the Linux 3.14 DRM changes are:
- A new Bochs driver to be used by QEMU.
- The major VMware SVGA2 virtual GPU changes for VMware's next-generation virtual GPU used by their proprietary virtualization stack (while it may be for their closed-source software, at least they have a working 3D virtualization stack for VMs compared to Linux's continued lack of one for KVM/QEMU until Virgil3D is finally ready).
- Lots of Intel changes including official Broadwell hardware support, deprecating user-space mode-setting support, run-time D3 Haswell support, power-well work, and various bug-fixes.
- Nouveau, the open-source NVIDIA driver, will support new GeForce 700 series hardware with acceleration, continued work towards eventual power management / re-clocking, and overlay support for older hardware.
- The open-source AMD Radeon driver has more DPM support improvements including dynamic power management by default for newer Radeon HD R200 series / CIK GPUs by default and other fixes, and various bug-fixes.
- PRIME support inside the open-source NVIDIA Tegra driver and other fixes.
- Intel GMA500 Poulsbo fixes and work towards 2D acceleration support.
- Various fixes to the other DRM drivers.
