Dear List,
in the news yesterday is Fedora Rawhide switching to the generic
modesetting driver in favor of intels DDX [1].
Modesetting is said to be more stable, while 2D performance compared
to glamor is worse in few areas [2].
There was also no official intel-DDX release in 2 years, no stable one
in 3 years.
Ubuntu 16.10 and Debian Unstable (July 2016) also did the switch for
Intel "Gen4" hardware and newer (anything past the i965GM era) [3]

As xserver 1.19 is still baking for tumbleweed - are there plans that
we also make the switch when it lands?

FWIW, modesetting is used already for Intel Skylake and newer, but
yes, we discussed it locally (even today) and agreed with going
forward to this way. Stefan, could you clarify your grand-plan?


thanks,

Takashi
