    Phoronix: RadeonHD 1.2 Driver Released

    It's been a long time in the making, but the xf86-video-radeonhd 1.2 driver has just been pushed out the door. RadeonHD 1.2 is the first new release for this open-source ATI R500/600 driver since December of last year. The RadeonHD 1.2 driver includes support for new AMD graphics processors, 2D XAA/EXA acceleration, and other changes.

    This is a very solid driver base for R500+ users that don't need 3D yet. It hasn't big features yet, but runs very stable. Great work to everyone involved! (more changes than the new nVidia blob...)
