  • Intel Linux 4.6 Graphics Updates Have FBC/PSR, More Atomic Display Work

    With Linux 4.5 expected this weekend, Daniel Vetter of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center has offered a glimpse of what's coming with the i915 graphics driver changes of Linux 4.6.

    We've already covered many of the Intel graphics changes of Linux 4.6 like frame-buffer compression and panel self refresh by default, but his blog post today is a nice, quick summary if you're behind on your reading.

  • A Few More AMDGPU Changes Line Up For Linux 4.6

    While the main AMDGPU pull request for Linux 4.6 happened back in February, another pull request was sent in today with more AMDGPU DRM fixes into DRM-Next that in turn will make it for Linux 4.6.

    First, see that earlier article if you aren't familiar with the changes of the AMDGPU/Radeon code for the upcoming Linux 4.6 cycle. There was also this Radeon/AMDGPU fixes pull from earlier in the week while Alex Deucher has now squeezed in another pull request.

GNOME News: Black Lab Drops GNOME and Further GNOME Experiments in Meson

  • Ubuntu-Based Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11.0.1 Drops GNOME 3 for MATE Desktop
    Coming about two weeks after the release of Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11, which is based on the Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system using the HWE (hardware enablement) kernel from Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), Black Lab Enterprise Linux 11.0.1 appears to be an unexpected maintenance update addressing a few important issues reported by users lately.
  • 3.26 Developments
    My approach to development can often differ from my peers. I prefer to spend the early phase of a cycle doing lots of prototypes of various features we plan to implement. That allows me to have the confidence necessary to know early in the cycle what I can finish and where to ask for help.
  • Further experiments in Meson
    Meson is definitely getting more traction in GNOME (and other projects), with many components adding support for it in parallel to autotools, or outright switching to it. There are still bugs, here and there, and we definitely need to improve build environments — like Continuous — to support Meson out of the box, but all in all I’m really happy about not having to deal with autotools any more, as well as being able to build the G* stack much more quickly when doing continuous integration.
