    Phoronix: DRM Improvements Coming Up For Linux 3.2 Kernel

    The Linux 3.1 kernel should be released any day now after going through nine test releases, which will be followed by the opening of the Linux 3.2 kernel merge window. Here's some of the DRM improvements to look forward to in this next major kernel release...

    What about HDMI audio?

    Now why do I feel like a donkey for buying AMD graphics?

    To be perfectly honest, while hdmi audio would be nice (one less cable is nothing to be sneesed at) if that's all you've got to complain about, then I'd say that the open source AMD guys are doing OK.

    Personnally, I'm more interested in what's cooking in mesa (the shader optimiser has got me especially excited).

    That said, I'd still appreciate improved pm in radeon, but I'm not stepping up to the plat to do it (no time since I'm starting a buisness), so I'm not moaning.

    I sure wish someone would step up to the plate on power management, namely dynamic power management. Its really the only thing holding me back from finally leaving catalyst behind for good

    You don't have to wait until kernel 3.2, the code can be checked out from git and be installed on your system.

    And generally, buying hardware because of expected future features is a bad idea.
