Ah, neat another cool update for the r600g.
But seriously, isn't anyone finding it very remarkable that suddenly (since a few weeks) the development in this driver is boosting by 10x or even more...
I bet ATI is trying to shoot this driver up, boost gallium usage and release a working r600g driver with ATI 6xxx series cards when they get released! After all, a working OpenGL 2.1 through gallium is a lot better then a severely crippled OpenGL 4.1
And besides that, if ATI has a fully functional gallium driver for the 6000 series then gallium state trackers for higher OpenGL version will probably follow fast.
I do wonder how they are gonna do hardware video decoding in gallium though... Perhaps they are gonna release an API for that after all?
I wish i could see how this driver and ATI 6xxx support looks in 6 months on linux.
The way i see this (and i hope i'm right and that it doesn't take YEARS!) is that the ATI driver state in linux is going to dramatically change for the better in the coming months. And with that all graphic drivers in time.
is r600g for r700 chip also?[4850 radeon] ?
Also the neatest thing is that since Evergreen apparently goes to r600g too, some of this neat new development is applicable there too. \o/
Suse(NOvel) is still involved in the development? or they have withdrawn after radeonhd=
