Linux Open source 3D graphics drivers for ATI R600 garphics cards has been submitted to the kernel-next tree for possible inclusion in the Linux kernel 2.6.32. "David Airlie has pushed a horde of new code into his drm-next Git tree, which is what will get pulled into the Linux 2.6.32 kernel once the merge window is open. Most prominently, this new DRM code brings support for kernel mode-setting with R600 class hardware as well as 3D support."

To everyone asking when the code will actually be available (and not happy with git repositories), this code will be backported into Fedora 12. I'm not sure about the other fall distros, but I think it could potentially be in some others as well.

I think F12 will probably enable it by default, although I'm not sure about that either.
