AMD --
As a quick follow-up to yesterday's article about a new TearFree option for the Radeon X.Org driver as the latest effort to eliminate tearing, that feature is now in Git.

For those wishing to try out the non-default TearFree option to try to reduce/eliminate tearing for non-rotated displays, you can now pull from the xf86-video-ati Git mainline. Michel Dänzer of AMD committed the fourth revision of the patch today for TearFree supportion.

This Radeon X.Org driver feature is documented via this Git commit.
