00:54 - Debian/X.org notes - DRI2 fixed in unstable, and more

A couple news from the mostly-offline X Strike Force team:

The previous upload of xserver-xorg-core (2:1.6.1.901-3) severely broke DRI2 and more. 2:1.6.2-1 has been uploaded, it should hopefully fix all this.

Intel driver 2.7.99.902 has landed in experimental as well.

As expected, the arrival of Linux kernel 2.6.30 helped a lot. So if you had problems, especially performance problems with 2.6.29, make sure you try 2.6.30. If you're playing with kernel modesetting, upgrading to kernel 2.6.31 and latest intel driver in experimental is probably a good idea as well.

Update: Intel driver 2.7.99.902 is broken when NOT using Kernel Modesetting, see #537052.
