I'm pleased to announce the 1.2.0 release of xf86-video-amdgpu, the Xorg
driver for AMD Radeon GPUs supported by the amdgpu kernel driver.
This release supports xserver versions 1.10-1.19.


* Significant 2D compositing performance increase.
* Option "TearFree" can now prevent tearing in all possible display
  configurations (with current versions of Xorg). Specifically, it's
  now also effective with arbitrary RandR transforms and with RandR 1.4
  slave output.
* DRI3 is now enabled by default if the Xorg version is >= 1.18.3 and
  glamor is enabled.
* DRI3/Present asynchronous page flips are now supported (requires
  corresponding kernel driver support, available in current versions of
  the Linux kernel). This can increase performance of fullscreen
  applications with sync-to-vblank disabled.
* The HW cursor can now be used with RandR 1.4 slave output or with
  TearFree & rotation.
* Performance improvements with RandR 1.4 slave output.
* The list of supported GPUs in the Xorg log file has been tidied up.
* RandR 1.4 provider capabilities are now advertised more accurately.
* Support for SI family GPUs.

Plus many other improvements and fixes. Thanks to everybody who
contributed to this release in any way!
