is little more than a month before it debuts Ubuntu 13.10 , a pitch without much relevance to the end user because of the support time, a major release for Canonical, it will begin testing your new server default graphic in the form of XMir .
The news, as the holder of this post, is that version 3.0 of the open source graphics drivers from Intel, still in development, and includes support for XMir , the implementation of the X on Mir for now works in all cases with modified drivers.
So these drivers you be ready for the launch of Ubuntu 13.10? Canonical Will also include? According to the developers, XMIr API is stable , unless there are “people who come with impressive ways of doing things,” ie, with new features.Along with the change
mentioned Intel drivers finally implemented full support for SNA , a 2D acceleration method much faster than the traditional, used by Ubuntu and other distributions, but can cause problems in specific cases.
In short, good news for Canonical, although there is still no support for XMir or Mir Mesa, leaving Ubuntu without using OpenGL graphics rendering, at least natively . This and the proprietary drivers from AMD and NVIDIA are two pitfalls that must save the project to get away on his adventure.
