X Happenings ...

Here’s a nice little gift from the X team, an updated drivers PPA for those of you who want stable releases of drivers without bleeding too much. Having been one of the folks bitten by Intel X driver bugs this cycle I am glad we have this option available. I have been wondering the past few months what just has been going on with this driver since it has been very frustrating to watch it seemingly regress. Keith Packard from Intel has blogged an update on what’s going in -intel land which makes me feel a lot better.

Also, if you’re an nvidia user and want to help triage some bugs that would be appreciated. Of course, the X team is always looking for gifted people to fight the good fight, check out the wiki find out how to help. Big thanks to Bryce Harrington this cycle, who has been working dreadful hours and soldiering on.
