Nouveau 1.0.13 X.Org Driver Released

Written by Michael Larabel in Nouveau on 22 September 2016 at 02:43 PM EDT. 4 Comments
The latest stable release of the Nouveau X.Org driver is now available for users of this open-source NVIDIA DDX component in conjunction with the Nouveau DRM kernel driver.

The xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.12 release happened nine months ago so there are some changes that came together in that time, but then again the most interesting innovations in the open-source Linux graphics stack fall outside the DDX drivers the past few years. In total since the v1.0.12 release were just seven commits.

This xf86-video-nouveau 1.0.13 release has support for the X.Org Server 1.19 video ABI and fixes for reverse PRIME offloading. That's basically it for Nouveau users, assuming you are still using this DDX driver and not the generic xf86-video-modesetting driver.

Those wanting this updated DDX can find it via this Git repository.
