Phoronix: xf86-video-intel 2.4.0 Driver Released
It's been about three months since the xf86-video-intel 2.3.0 driver was released and today they have now issued their next quarterly update. Version 2.4.0 of this Intel X.Org graphics driver brings GMA 4-Series support (including their new flagship X4500 IGP), improved i965 EXA Render performance, integrated HDMI support, and SDVO-HDMI support...
Performance improvements for pre-965
Will the intel driver developers keep working on improving performance for older intel hardware, like the gma 915, too? Especially now 915 and 945 are getting used in cheap netbooks it would be nice if there's still ongoing work to improve performance there. On the other hand I'd rather see an excellent driver for the newest hardware, but both would be even nicer.
