I'm also curious to know what is planned for the i915. I am especially
interested in knowing when you plan to add hardware acceleration and
vertical retrace synchronization to the second display.

Also, where could I find a list of improvements that have been made in this
new release, besides i965 support, over that which was already available.

Btw, could you disclosure further plans? Are you going to enhance i915 and
drivers or main efforts are towards the i965 HW?
