- Enable render acceleration for Haswell GT1/GT2.
- Enable multi-threaded rasterisation of trapezoids and fallback composition
- Utilile a new kernel interface (v3.9) for processing relocations
Older features from the 2.20.x series:
- PRIME support for hotplug GPUs and hybrid systems
- Support for IvyBridge GT1 machines, aka HD2500 graphics.
- Stable 830gm/845g support, at last!
- Prevent a stray relocation being left after a buffer is removed from a batch, leading to GPU hangs.
- Make the driver more robust against its own failures to submit batches by falling back to software rendering.
- Fix emission of scanline waits for secondary pipes on gen6/7. Otherwise you may encounter GPU hangs in MI_WAIT_FOR_EVENT.
- Fix a missing corner pixel when drawing rectangles PolyLines https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55484
- Don't try to use Y-tiling colour buffers mesa/i915c as mesa doesn't support them and wil fallback to software rendering
- Ensure that any cached mmaps are invalidated for a SwapBuffers https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60042
- Correctly handle the composition of rotated displays too large for the 3D pipeline https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60124
- Fix the computation of the planar video frame size https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/1104180
Note: Before proceeding with your driver installation we suggest you make sure you are installing the latest version available and for the appropriate model/revision and Operating System. We strongly suggest following 'readme' instructions for installing drivers when available. Often restarting your system will be necessary for the new driver to become active and start functioning properly.
