X.ORG --
Rob Clark has released an updated X.Org DDX driver for his Freedreno driver project that continues to strive towards reverse-engineering the Adreno graphics processors found on Qualcomm's ARM SoCs.

As with most X.Org DDX updates in general, the xf86-video-freedreno 1.3 release isn't too incredibly interesting with most Linux graphics driver innovations happening within the DRM/KMS and Mesa/Gallium3D areas. However, for users of the open-source Freedreno driver there are some notable fixes.

The Freedreno 1.3 X.Org driver has fixes with the KMS code dealing with multiple displays, server FD fixes, one fix to DRI2, and one change to the XA 2D acceleration code. More details via the DDX release announcement.
