Announcing the 1.3.0 Release of the xf86-video-radeonhd driver.

RadeonHD is the X.org X11 driver for AMD GPG (ATI) r5xx/r6xx/r7xx chipsets.
The development is driven by a community of open source developers, supported
by Novell and AMD at the time of writing.
AMD provides free documentation for the chipsets.

Note the wiki on http://wiki.x.org/wiki/radeonhd

Version 1.3.0 improvements:

  - Added support for RV740, M92, M93, M97.
  - Added support for HDMI audio on RS690 and R700.
  - Added support for power management.
  - Implemented almost correct analysis of PowerPlay AtomBIOS tables.
  - 2D acceleration (EXA) is enabled by default now, except on RV740.
  - Backlight handling finally fixed - compatible with xbacklight 1.1.1.
  - Overhaul of memory controller setup. Fixes many "MC not idle" issues.
  - Overhaul of cursor handling. Fixes most cursor bugs.
  - Selectable color space for XVideo on R6xx/R7xx.
  - Tons of bug fixes (DDC, EXA, LUT, RandR, AtomBIOS).
  - More quirk table entries.
  - Shave support (cleaner compilation output).
  - All warnings fixed.
  - Some start of Developer's documentation in README.coding.
