While there hasn't been much to report on lately as it pertains to the open-source Exynos DRM driver, it continues to be updated and maintained by Samsung's staff.

As a late pull request (given the new early cut-off for DRM code) was sent in and accepted for updating the Exynos DRM in the Linux 3.18 kernel.

There's various enhancements to the driver, clean-ups to the IPP and FIMC drivers, universal plane support, and other changes. The main feature though would likely be considered the addition of Exynos 3250 SoC support. The Exynos 3250 is the dual-core Cortex-A7 System-on-a-Chip powering the new Samsung Gear 2 smart-watch.

The complete list of Exynos DRM driver changes for Linux 3.18 can be found via the Git pull.

Aside from Exynos with the more popular DRM graphics drivers there are many new features coming to Linux 3.18.
