    Or, what X.org could do is try to maintain compatibility this time. How about that? :-/

    X has a long and clunky history, and is being asked to accomodate lots of new inovations.

    keeping the API static would probably greatly inhibit the adoption of new rendering/compositing technologies.

    Onto the 1.0-9XXX drivers... I have heard no official word on anything recently.

    They should be here soon as they need to support the Quadro Plex, which should be shipping anytime. (The Quadro Plex officially supports Linux, and any user that just lays down ~$18k on a graphics solution should have drivers) In addition, the GeForce 7950GT and 7900GS will be shipping today. Perhaps the inaugural Rel90 driver will be out mid-September?

    any idea on X.org 7.2 support?

    No clue yet on the X.Org 7.2 support...

    This is a clear guess, but I would imagine no immediate support for X.Org 7.2 with the initial Rel90 drivers. The next versions of Ubuntu and Fedora are coming out in October, and they will ship with X.Org 7.1. SuSE 10.2 seems to be the only MAJOR distribution in the immediate future that will likely adapt X 7.2. So it's just a guess that the support won't come too soon, unless the ABI changes are minimal.

    MCP61 support in the 1.0-9XXX drivers is confirmed.

    I can't wait for the new 1.0.9xxx series, hopefully it'll give us all a nice performance boost.

    Some more thoughts and information (and compacting most of the information in this thread) is @ http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=7380

    Default SUSE and AIGLX?

    i like nvidia hardware, and i am willing to go with nvidia with their stated preference for AIGLX over XGL.

    this leaves me in a quandry as my preferred linux vendor is SUSE who heavily support XGL...........

    what chance that when nvidia and ati have both released drivers supporting GLX_rtp and SUSE have released a X.org 7.1/2 compliant distro that they will support both AIGLX and XGL?

    XGL shouldn't have any problems running with either ATI or NVIDIA's current closed-source drivers. As soon as the new GLX extension is supported with the respective drivers, AIGLX should have no problems running. Was that your question?
