[ANNOUNCE] xf86-video-intel 2.8.0

We are pleased to present this major release of the xf86-video-intel
driver. This release is very similar to the 126.96.36.1992 release
candidate but includes a couple of additional bug fixes, (for bugs
#22760 and @22483).
Compared to the 2.7 releases this driver contains several new features
and many bug fixes. The driver now depends on X server 1.6 or later,
and eliminates several obsolete code paths, (XAA and EXA removed in
favor of UXA, DRI1 support eliminated). The driver certainly will work
best with an i915 module from a recent kernel (2.6.31) and with
kernel-modesetting (KMS, specified by loading i915 with the option

New features in 2.8.0 compared to 2.7
* Remove XAA/EXA/DRI1 and NoAccel, and only support UXA/DRI2 now
(requiring xserver 1.6).
* VLD support added into XvMC for Mpeg2, which decreases CPU usage
when playing video.
Major fixes in 2.8.0 compared to 2.7
* Fix broken front-buffer rendering
* Fix disabling of XvMC disabled
* Fix broken VT switch on some machines
* Improve performance of trapezoid rendering for UXA
* Vblank sync'd GL buffer swap (fixing video tearing under composite)
* Fix G41 DRM support
* Fix crash on some 8xx
Various fixes for GPU hangs, and more...
