It's quiet lately regarding XGL-related development, it seems everyone is preparing something for X dev conference. I hope for better r300 DRI support and preliminary DRI memory management (=important also for XGL). I also hope they were able to improve Xegl, which,unlike Xglx "hack", is much more cleaner and more flexible approach (meaning also more work to do in underlaying graphic driver layers).

I think it is a good thing to have Novell pushing Xgl. They can influence graphic card manufacturers to produce suitable drivers for XGL including all needed extensions for Xgl or even (I hope) MesaScreenSurface for xegl? (Of course this support isn' needed in open source drivers)
