Hi all,

Kernel 3.12 is already out and will be base of next quarterly release.
So it is time to get intel-gpu-tools released also.

Testsuit infrastructure is in a very good shape and it is so easy to
create any test case nowadays. More about it explained above on
Daniel's post.


- Some polishing of the test infrastructure, for details see:


- Haswell support for the DPF tool (tools/intel_l3_parity) and other
  improvements (Ben).

- Stereo/3D support in testdisplay (Damien).

- Support for gen7 gpu perf counters in tools/intel_perf_counters (Kenneth).

- Improvements to the VBT decoder (Jani).

- New tool to read legacy VGA registers (Ville).

- New helpers in the test library to help deal with debugfs files and the new
  display pipe CRC support (Damien).

- Introduction of a proper naming convention for all the testcases, see

- As usual tons of new testcases and improvements and bugfixes to existing ones.

- The testsuite framework itself has gained some regression tests which can be
  run at compile-time with "make check".

- New helpers for the drop_cache kernel interface and use drop_caches(RETIRE) to
  really make sure the gpu is idle in testcases (Oscar Mateo).
