Hi folks,


During the last discussion about glamor’s plan in this list, we got a
conclusion that to extract glamor from xorg and

build a separate glamor library to be used by any possible DDX driver. And
Eric suggested I can incrementally 

merge glamor into Intel video driver. Now here is the update.


The separate glamor library is at :
git://,it provides two interfaces:

1.       glamor : Rendering library. All the rendering functions are
implemented in this package. 

2.       glamor-egl : EGL support library. This package provides functions
to create and initialize OpenGL/EGL context.


There are a little bit more details to introduce glamor in the README file.


The Intel video driver to merge glamor is at
git://’s “glamor” branch.

I just started the merging stage. Only finished 3 patches to enable glamor
in UXA code path. Currently, only migrate

fillspans and polyfillrect to glamor. Will continue to migrate the rest


I will submit the patches to intel-gfx mail list soon.
