VC5 Driver Development Continues, Raspbian Performance Still Being Tuned
Broadcom developer Eric Anholt has provided another weekly status update on his driver writing projects. He's been working on more of the internal code for VC5, mostly around the intermediate representation used by the driver. Back in the VC4 driver space, he's still working on improving the window-dragging performance under X.Org when using the VC4 driver with GLAMOR. He has some new ideas how to cut the cost of window movement in half, but is still working on the code.
