AMD's RadeonHD Driver Reaches v0.0.2
Phoronix: AMD's RadeonHD Driver Reaches v0.0.2
Last week the RadeonHD development was rather slow with only 30 commits to their xf86-video-radeonhd git tree all week. However, the Novell developers have been making some good progress this week.
I wonder why there isn't an official website with a wiki, forum, roadmap details, short information, downloadable documents (specs), releaseinformation, tarballs etc.
how should developers get information about this project?
the nouveau project has a great website with a feature matrix and so. that would be something great for the radeonhd-driver (and is necessary, i think)!
it's way too early for that. besides there is just a handful of people working on radeonhd (two, three?) for the time being.
also remember - only preliminary documentation has been released from ati/amd. don't expect anything fancy anytime soon.
the only way developers can get information on any project is looking at the code and trying to do something useful with it.
That is only for fglrx, not RadeonHD.
