I'm pleased to announce the 1.1.0 release of xf86-video-amdgpu, the Xorg
driver for AMD Radeon GPUs supported by the amdgpu kernel driver.
This release supports xserver versions 1.9-1.18.


* Support for the upcoming Polaris family of GPUs.
* Option "TearFree" can now prevent tearing with rotation/reflection as
  well (with Xorg >= 1.16).
* RandR CRTC transforms now work correctly (but for now still exhibit
  tearing even with TearFree).
* The RandR 1.4 provider name is now no longer hardcoded to "amdgpu"
  but constructed from the GPU chipset name and bus ID, allowing
  several GPUs supported by this driver to be distinguished by name.
* The RandR primary output is now always explicitly marked as such.
* The driver can prevent clients trying to use the DRI3 extension over a
  display connection forwarded via SSH from hanging.
* VDPAU/OpenGL interoperation can now work with DRI3 enabled.
* Many more fixes for issues using the DRI3/Present extensions.

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

Michel Dänzer (41):
      Post 1.0.0 release version bump
      glamor: Restore all ScreenRec hooks during CloseScreen
      glamor: Deal with glamor_egl_destroy_textured_pixmap being removed

      HAS_DIRTYTRACKING_ROTATION also supports multiple CRTCs
      Add amdgpu_pixmap_get_handle helper
      Make amdgpu_do_pageflip take a pixmap instead of a BO
      glamor: Avoid generating GEM flink names for BOs shared via DRI3 (v2)
      DRI2: Use amdgpu_pixmap_get_handle
      Build RandR 1.4 provider name from chipset name and bus ID
      Fix RandR CRTC transforms
      drm_queue: Don't abort events immediately from amdgpu_drm_abort_client
      DRI2: Also clear dri2_flipping when client disconnects before event
      Remove amdgpu_scanout_flip_handler
      Make DRM event queue xf86CrtcPtr based instead of ScrnInfoPtr based
      Deal with modesets and page flips crossing on a CRTC
      Remove check for XF86_CRTC_VERSION 3
      Consolidate pScreen usage in drmmode_set_mode_major
      Make Option "TearFree" effective for rotated/reflected outputs as well
      present: Clear drmmode->fb_id before calling set_mode_major for unflip
      present: Return rotated CRTCs from amdgpu_present_get_crtc
      Call AMDGPUBlockHandler_KMS before setting initial modes
      Factor out HW cursor checking code into drmmode_can_use_hw_cursor
      Don't try DRI2/Present flipping while the HW cursor can't be used
      Check for xf86CursorResetCursor
      DRI3 only works with acceleration
      Fix build against older versions of xserver
      Require xserver 1.9 or newer
      Revert "Use render node for DRI3 if available"
      DRI3: Refuse to open DRM file descriptor for ssh clients
      Identify DRM event queue entries by sequence number instead of by pointer
      Update manpage entry for Option "TearFree"
      glamor: Force GPU rendering to/from pixmaps created via DRI3
      Bump version for 1.1.0 release

Mykola Lysenko (2):
      Check for NULL koutput in drmmode_output_dpms
      Initialize drmmode_crtc dpms_mode to DPMSModeOff

Tom St Denis (1):
      Move memset() after variable declarations

jimqu (2):
      Move amdgpu_glamor_destroy_pixmap before amdgpu_glamor_create_pixmap
      glamor: Return NullPixmap on failure to create shareable pixmap
