"Now that the Linux 2.6.35 kernel was released a few days ago,
Linus Torvalds has begun pulling in new code for the Linux 2.6.36
kernel as the various developers begin submitting pull requests of
their new work. Dave Airlie, the maintainer of the Direct Rendering
Manager (DRM) code in the Linux kernel, overnight sent in his first
Git pull request of his DRM tree. This pull request brings many new
features for Intel, ATI, and NVIDIA/Nouveau graphics hardware.
"The main feature of the Intel DRM in the Linux 2.6.35 kernel
was H.264 VA-API decoding support with Intel's newest graphics
processors. The Linux 2.6.36 kernel should bring in greater eDP
support, various patches all over, and tracepoints support for
page-flipping and vblank support."
