Intel 2.99.917 X.Org Driver Released, 3.0 Release Finally Near
Chris Wilson of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center prepared the xf86-video-intel 2.99.917 snapshot on Sunday. It's been three months since the last Intel X.Org development release and Chris is finally back to trying to get the 3.0 release out the door. Today's release fixes a couple bugs relating to Broadwell and rasterization, DP MST discovery without udev support, fixing TearFree operation after the GPU is wedged, corruption fixes, a Xinerama crash fix, and other fixes.
Chris wrote, "3 months have passed, we should make one more snapshot before an imminent release." Hopefully no major regressions will come up and xf86-video-intel 3.0 will finally get released. The 2.99.917 details via this Git commit.
