Intel has sent in another round of graphics driver changes to be queued up in DRM-Next for the Linux 3.19 kernel.

The Intel DRM driver for Linux 3.19 already has initial Intel Skylake graphics support and numerous other changes. Daniel Vetter today sent in yet another drm-next pull request and he says the Intel team will have one more pull request in the coming days once it clears their QA/validation process.

Today's "drm-intel-next-2014-11-07" pull request has Skylake watermark code, reworked audio codec/ELD handling code, Skylake force-wake support, Cherryview support improvements, golden context support for Skylake, and tons of other fixes and improvements.

Find out the full list of these exciting Intel open-source Linux kernel graphics driver improvements via the mailing list pull request. The Linux 3.19 kernel cycle will get underway officially next month once Linux 3.18 has been christened.
