I'm not sure what chevere means, but I recognize some of the words from Spanish."parece esta noticia" means "seems this news". I have no idea what "chevere" is and "me" is english. :)

Babelfish didn't manage to come up with any suggestions, but from the context I'd venture a guess that it means "good".And if that is the case, I fully agree!It might even mean that we'll see another TBDR, TileBasedDeferedRenderer, for the pc market soon, which would be a good thing :)
