BSD --
The DragonFlyBSD operating system with its AMD Radeon graphics driver ported from the Linux DRM/KMS code is up to a state equivalent to where it was in the Linux 3.18 kernel.

Thanks to this work landing by DragonFlyBSD developer François Tigeot, the Radeon DRM code in the DragonFly kernel took a minor step ahead.

As covered two years ago on Phoronix, the Radeon DRM has many changes in Linux 3.18. The work included re-clocking improvements, userptr support, R600 UVD video decoding, concurrent buffer read support, and more.

The updated graphics drivers will be found in the upcoming DragonFlyBSD 4.5.
