I wonder if others are wondering as I am, just when the next "radeon" DDX release will be ?

I have been following the commits in the various git trees, and it seems to me there are literally HUNDREDS of fixes and improvements ready to be released. It is not good enough to say "if you want this stuff, you can always pull it yourself".

It is high time that there was another stable release. Waiting for all r600/700 features to be available is not an option, because there will be a r800 and even a r900 soon enough, and the release will recede infinitely into the distance.

Another option would be to split the driver into two separate "r500 and earlier" and "r600 and later" components, as the "one size fits all" approach does not seem to be working very well.
