This week has seen some more improvements to the RadeonHD driver. The week started out with the RadeonHD driver better implementing the AtomBIOS. AtomBIOS is now used for obtaining clock limit data in order to calculate pixel clocks and LVDS parameters for panels. A few memory leak fixes were also fixed. This past week has seen about 30 commits to the RadeonHD driver. This number is in starch contrast to previous weeks where we seen as many as 90 commits. In fact, there hasn't been any commits to xf86-video-radeonhd in three days. The Novell developers though have remained active on the RadeonHD mailing list. Perhaps they are just preparing for the next array of changes? Trying out the Radeon HD 2900XT 512MB graphics card with the latest RadeonHD git on October 13, everything was still running fine.
