Intel X.Org Driver package, an open source 2D graphics driver for the X Window System as implemented by, has reached version 2.20.10.

Chris Wilson has released yet another version of xf86-video-intel drivers, which features quite some interesting changes.

“The last couple of weeks have been fairly retrospective, a dive into prehistory tidying up the earlier generations which lay languishing as the core progressed and lead to a number of annoying core bugs being fixed,” said Wilson in the release announcement.

Highlights of Intel X.Org Driver 2.20.10:

• DRM master earlier is now released earlier, during shutdown, so switching between multiple X servers works automatically;
• Error propagation from DRI2GetMSC has been suppressed;
• A few fixes to i8xx batch emission, ensuring that the GPU is always in a valid state, have been implemented;
• A crash combining TearFree and rotations has been prevented.
