Nothing new here, move along.

The only thing that is happenend is instead of having to go through the developer's portal, anyone can download the driver source. Nothing that we didn't have before...

The video driver is still not of the caliber to be included in xorg sources, and the method of mpeg acceleration is not useable by anything of consequence. Also, the mpeg decoding code is not available, it is in a binary.

If you want to see something worth looking at, go to And give those guys a hand.
