    Phoronix: Interesting Bits Of News From OSCON

    A few (small) interesting tidbits of information to report on from this afternoon's OSCON... - Along with delivering the source-code to Launchpad within the next twelve months, Canonical is working on a number of new Launchpad features. One area that will receive quite a bit of love is with the translations support...

    According the the nvidia slide the 180 drivers will have five new features, 10-bit displayport support, OpenGL 3.0, SLI on multi-monitors, transcoding on the GPU, and some performance 'optimizations' over R177.

    What we might see out of this:
    OpenGL3.0
    SLI on multi-monitors
    possibly the performance optimizations

    So interesting in a general way, except for the news about OpenGL 3 which is awesome!!

    So interesting in a general way, although absolutely nothing of interest to open-source folks.
    openGL 3.0 is of no interest to open-source folks?

    Plus there is no reason to think that encoding support would not be available in linux as,

    a) it would more then likely utilize cuda which already is supported in linux
    b) there is already API's for linux to support such GPU assisted transcoding

    Plus there is no reason why 10-bit displayport support would be left out as well.

    personally for me everything there is secondary to getting proper 2d to work on my nvidia card, we can then discuss all those other random features which may or may not come to linux any time soon..
