Intel Gets Called Out Again For Their M.I.A. 3.0 X.Org Driver ( 110

An anonymous reader writes: The xf86-video-intel 3.0 DDX driver has been in development the past two and a half years without seeing an official release. The last development release even of xf86-video-intel 3.0 Git was 13 months ago with the xf86-video-intel 2.99.917 release. At that time it was said by Intel's lead DDX developer, "3 months have passed, we should make one more snapshot before an imminent release." Since then, there's been no communications about a stable release of this DDX driver that makes SNA the default acceleration architecture over UXA. Over on the intel-gfx mailing list users are bringing up again the state of xf86-video-intel 3.0 and why it isn't released yet, questioning if Intel is "able to maintain its own device driver in a usable way?"

    They must not be using Agile methodology and must be missing their Sprints! Their Backlog must be huge! Process Control freaks must be weeping at this news!

    Look no further! []
  • Intel going Windows only and without AMD doing much they can.

  • Jessie would revert to software rendering, which makes working in Blender nearly impossible. Had to upgrade from Jessie to Stretch/testing for this to work though, which upgrades the entire graphics stack from the kernel up to X.

  • X is pretty much deprecated at this point. No one wants to maintain drivers for that shit.
