A new version of intel-gpu-tools has been released, the package used to assist in debugging Intel Linux graphics driver issues.

The Intel GPU Tools 1.13 release adds initial support for Kabylake, next year's successor to Skylake. Intel has been working on open-source hardware enablement of Kabylake for a while now and with the Linux 4.5 kernel is when the initial support is set to land.

Besides adding Kabylake support to intel-gpu-tools 1.13, this new release has a number of new tests, support for wildcard characters with the run sub-test command, support for Broxton with Intel audio dumping, and more. One of the interesting new tests is kms_atomic for being able to test the atomic mode-setting support.
