    Default LibTXC_DXTN

    Perhaps you should have told your readers that you can simply get S3TC compression on Fedora by installing this package? Of course, only if your countries laws allow you to, which I think is no trouble for most people.

    The Nouveau nvc0 (Fermi) driver in Mesa 8.0 supports GL3, same as softpipe and Intel Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge.

    r300g & r600g still reports no MSAA on this page here: http://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature

    Default switchable GPU support.

    Since Nvidia has totally messed up their Linux support with their "Optimus" crap, a working solution to use discreet GPU on "muxless" configuration is highly needed.

    He said MLAA, and that page does list it as mostly working.
