I'm pleased to announce the 1.3.0 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.


* Allow TearFree to be toggled at runtime via an RandR output property
  "TearFree". The xorg.conf option "TearFree" now controls the default
  value of the output properties.
* Use libdrm_amdgpu functionality to determine the GPU marketing name,
  remove corresponding tables from this driver.
* Use DRM render nodes for DRI3 clients when available.

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