Hi all,

2013Q3 has been released: 2013q3-intel-graphics-stack-release

The 2013Q3 highlights are: Solid Intel® Celeron® N2810 processor with Intel® HD Graphics support, SNA enabled by default and power savings improvements for 4th Generation Intel® Core™ processors with Intel HD Graphics.

SNA (SandyBridge’s New Acceleration) is a xf86-video-intel acceleration method that allows better 2D performance on Intel. With better performance, better stability, and more active development, this is now on the default that is tested and validated on the Intel® Linux Graphics Stack. Although it contains the codename SandyBridge in its name, this new acceleration method supports all Intel platforms that were already supported by UXA (Unified Acceleration Architecture).

Intel-gpu-tools is now part of a quarterly stack release. It is a collection of tools for development and testing of the Intel DRM. Latest released version provides a very robust test framework, performance analizers, validation scripts, and a easy way for end users to collect logs for easy and better bug reports. It also has the traditional tools for gpu snapshots, register dumping, read, and writes. Intel-gpu-tools 1.4 was used on 2013Q3 tests and validation.

There have been many bug fixes and performance improvements in many parts of Intel Linux Graphics stack. In this release, support has been added or refined for the recently released Intel Celeron N2810 processor with Intel HD Graphics.
